Guys , don't get me wrong i like the holidays but I am kinda glad we are getting thru this one.
Today at work, I talked to a guy that has some knowledge of how the scrap yard business works. Interesting stuff.
During lunch break, i took the little Murray and a few pieces to the scrap yard, trying to get both the trailers cleared for this weekend projects. As i was about to leave work i get a phone number for a guy that had some kind of large industrial machine supposedly weighing 2000 pounds that he needed gone. I call him and get the address. My plan was to scrap it because it was my understanding the machine was in not repairable. So, i get home hook up the big trailer and get to the place and find that someone else is already loading it. I call him and he said that i was supposed to call him as i was leaving. I don't remember him telling me that. Oh well, lesson well learned, no sense in getting upset over that.
After that 30 minutes of wasted time and few gallons of fuel, i made a trip up to Springfield and sold a piece of furniture i had on craigslist. Made a little money for the precious liquid they call gas.
The plans for tomorrow morning are
1. Take the small trailer to the dump to get rid of some old junk. That is usually an interesting trip.
2. I am supposed to go pay the guy for the White Tractor and pick it up. That will be very interesting not only getting it but getting it out of back of an old junky Dodge truck. It has tree sap, leaves, and no telling what else all over it. This is will be a very interesting venture. Tonight is like Christmas eve for me thinking about getting it.
3. Later around lunch, am supposed to go to the in-laws, they are having their Christmas get together. Oh boy.
And then whatever else may come along. The plan is to take the White tractor to Dad's place while i find a motor for it. While I am there, i have another Murray i have used a lot of parts from. I may load it on the trailer to go to scrap. its kind of in the way where i plan to put the White under the lean to beside the barn.
It will be a good day boys.
