Dad Howard, his tiller and the dozer-house a few years ago #TBT

DadH_Gardening2009Since I’ve been negotiating these past couple of weeks in selling my mother-in-law’s farmhouse and property, it seemed appropriate to post a Throw Back Thursday (#TBT) photo of Dad Howard in his gardening attire.

We are close to having a signed contract and are entering the inspections phase along with financing approval and wondering if the buyer’s house will sell? All seems to be coming together as interest has definitely picked up in Western New York.

Sister-in-laws Chris and Ann sent me their Easter 2015 photo with Mom Howard this week so figured I would archive it in this family post …

  • my dad had (and still has) the exact same tiller. I’ve got some pictures somewhere of me using it with my dad when I could barely reach the handle

    • My sister-in-law in Milford has it now. I suspect the carburator is a bit gummed up with old gas, but it should run just fine for their garden when they have it cleaned. These older Troy Built tillers were build to last a lifetime.
