My Birthday's not until the end of October but my Dad decided to give me my Birthday present early this year!

Its a Bolens Thermometer!!! :dancingbanana:
This was at an old Bolens dealer's shop locally and I've had my eye on it for years. I asked numerous times if he would sell and everytime he said he was not ready to let go of it. I guess when my dad walked in, the owner was in the mood to finally let it go :dancingbanana:

I know you dont see these too often. I think I have seen around 4 of these and a few belong to members on here if I'm not mistaken.

That looks great Doc! You're going to have to post a pic of all of that stuff hanging on the walls! Is it all together, or do you have it hanging all through the house?

Great piece, I bet I know what dealer that came from. He must of been in a real good mood to let that go because when he's in a bad mood. He wants a million dollars for everything with a Bolens Label on it.

Doc, that's really neat. Your Dad must've gotten a smokin deal on it, because it's still reading 80 it's so hot.

Congrats!

I guess your Dad couldn't contain his enthusiasm until October! :bounce:

Since I'm usually late in extending birthday wishes, I'd better do it now so you get it in time:

Happy Birthday, Brian!
