#1 Years ago we had an Indian lease that had started out that way before WW I. The wells had all been changed over to individual jacks and had run on the casing head until we took it over and electrified it. But that big central, lay down bull wheel was still there along with the skeletal remains.

The family still lived on the farm and the grandfather tried explaining how it functioned. But he had been a little boy and not entirely mechanically inclined so I never could entirely visualize it.

Thanks Besoeker, a delightful reminscince after a trying week. Now if you could find that Sac and Fox girl we could revisit the whole, entire attention span dilemma.

#2 Distant childhood memories for me as well. A better time, a better place. God is good, he helps us remember the good times and iggy the bad. Funny how that works.

#4 /\ Sounds about right Abu. Not made in China, no plastic. Lasts a long time.
