I like your thoughts Dale. I know I get kind of hung up and sort of proud on being cheap. I've made reference to the fact that I can fill sprinkler tracks in my old jalopy tractor and it isn't costing me anything other than fuel to do it. Meanwhile the neighbor is filling tracks in his brand new R series Deere. I'm thinking that man............that's got to be costing him a lot of depreciation! All the while he's kicked back and relaxed in auto steer mode and I'm stressing in the dust trying to stay on top of the track. Yah.........I'm winning!
Point is.........as long as your farm is profitable there is nothing wrong with not being the "great" investor. And there is nothing wrong with enjoying a portion of the fruits of your labor.............while you're still laboring. My Dad died in a tractor accident at age 61. The need for him to save his fruit ended instantly that day in 2004.
