Went to an auction sale, and they had listed that there was a Massey Fergeson walk behind snowblower and a Cub Cadet with cab, deck, and blower.

The best part I saw on the bill was after each was listed they had the words "not running". :bounce: Those words to me are the best two word I love to see.

So I went to the auction and there were alot of people there, so I thought that I would have to pay up pretty good for the two. Of course they were the last few things of the auction.

Just before they sold the Massey they sold a Plymouth snowblower in fair condition that didn't run for $65. Thought there was more likely the low price that would have to pay. Then the Massey got auctioned. Auctioneer asked for $100, no one bid, then $50, no one bid. He looked at me, because he knew I did mower repair and asked if I would bid $20 and I said yes. He auctioned at little and then said sold. :confuse: I was stunded, I was the winner with one bid.

So next was the Cub Cadet 70 that they didn't start. It has the creaper unit, deck, snowblower, and the Internaional Windbreaker farbic cab enclosure. The auctioneer said that he could sell any item seperate if anyone would want something. No one spoke up, so he said everything was going to be sold as one unit. I thought this is going to be high in price.So he beings auctioning, $300, no one bid, $200, no one bid, $100, no one bid. I thought what am I hearing! :confuse: So he looked at me again and asked for $50 for everything and I said yes. I had one guy bid a few times and I was the winner at $95 dollars for everything.

Should I call the cop and say that I had stolen something, or did I pay too much? :laughingteeth:

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Should have really put a smile your face.
Are you going to be around tomorrow? Looks like it might be a good day to fly down and visit.
