The other week Joe (joes outdoor power) had a WH D180 come in with a FEL on it. I waited and waited until he put it up on ebay. It finally showed up and I started watching. I just knew it was going to go for $800+ which would be out of my budget. (Honestly $100 was out of my budget) So I just stared at it for a few days and forgot about it.
Money hasnt been tight but just no large amounts to play with. Still had DR bills from last year and a few others so I knew better than to bring up the possibilty of buying the FEL. After all it was going to go for a good amount.
Then one night I was checking ebay and saw that the FEL had sold for less than $700. I saw aloud "holy crap what a great deal somebody got" and hunny bunny hears me. She asks "whats up" and I tell her. She listens with that look they all have when you talk about money that you want to spend ona tractor. Then she ask me if I can build one for that price. Nope, it will cost more, I tell her.
THEN SHE SAYS "YOU SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT THAT ONE SINCE IT WOULD COST LESS AND YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TO WORRY WITH BUILDING ONE"
