Well, it looks like I am going to make another year - I'll be 85 -, so let me make another annual boring post. 

I wish to thank Darin for making this site available, and all the members who have made me feel so welcome to be a participant in the Unofficial Allis Chalmers Forum.  I have been a member since 1994 and have deeply enjoyed every moment.  I have made some outstanding friends and have seen some long standing members pass on.  You know, I do not think there is a day that I am on line that I do not visit this site.  It has always been and will continue to be my pleasure to share what knowledge and share what stores I can contribute, but I have to say a lot of the experts on this site have well passed me by.  Their knowledge is deeper and their tools and equipment so much more up to date.  Makes me wish I had the modern tools and technology “back in the day”

Again, thanks to all.  It will continue to be my pleasure to participate.

Good Luck!

Bill Long

I think I can speak for everyone, when I say it's my pleasure to have your presence and participation.  It's awesome. GOOD LUCK to you!  Hope you keep chugging along and keep participating for many years to come.

I can speak for others on this, if we could, and have the knowledge that you have / have passed onto us / and been so good to all of us, life would be a walk in the park!
Thanks, and many more for you!

Bill, although we have never met, I consider you a great friend and a very important member of this forum.  There is the old saying "If I knew then what I know now"...., who knows how our lives would be different.
Have a great Birthday, oh and GOOD LUCK!!!

Happy Birthday Mr. Long!!  Wishing you many more!.   As Brian F said, I too, read any post you make, as you don't post often, but when you do, it is ALWAYS worth reading.  Enjoy the cake and do something fun.

Looking back at the old Forum and how our handle would include the state we live in, and it was a bid deal when we found a way to post pictures and the chat room.  Keep up the great posts. Hope to see you at the shows.

Happy Birthday, Bill! Like others have said, nothing you post is boring, and I thoroughly enjoy reading what you have to share. To mimic what others have already said, if I see you've replied to a post I definitely read it because I enjoy your first-hand accounts!

Happy Birthday

Enjoy reading your posted messages.  I really enjoy reading about your favorite, the Allis Chalmers model B.  The B is also a very favorite of mine.  The B was the first tractor my father taught me to drive.  He always used the B to pick up hay by putting the tractor in low gear.  He jumped off , loaded bales, and walked beside the tractor to steer the tractor across the field.  A one man operation loading the roto bales on the wagon.  He had me drive the tractor when I was 10 years old so he didn't have to load bales, drive the tractor, and jump on at the end.

I wish you many more years of posting on this site.
