I had so many nice comments about my story 'Where in the World Is Heatwole, Minnesota', I decided I'd better write a follow-up to it.

Tom and I did make it to Heatwole this past August with the assistance of Tom's B model Mack. Our load consisted of a 40HP Case and two half-scale Case 65 models. One model belonged to Mahlon Giffin of Sedgewick, Kansas and the other to Bud Flowers of Litchfield, Minnesota. Mahlon followed us to the Heatwole Show in his pick-up and claimed he was so tired once he arrived because he had to push the 'Mack Bulldog' all the way up! Mahlon has been known to stretch the truth once in a while.

There were four half-scale Case 65 models at Heatwole Threshing Days. So there was much discussion among the various owners. As shown by the photograph, they are very proud owners and rightfully so. They made an impressive sight going through the parade.

Some rain arrived to this area several days prior to the show. It was needed so very desparately here as it was in other parts of the midwest. The community pulled together and made this show a good time for all to get together to talk, look, and of course, eat ice cream!
