The City of Waco cable channel came out a while back and did an almost three hour interview about my hobby. I received the DVD today. 6-1/2 minuets. Really professional and in HD. I used a combination of Movie Maker and VLC media player to convert the DVD to something I can U/L to YouTube, hopefully it will make it past their music copyrights. I have it uploading now, stay tuned.

Recently I had to use Old Girl to mow a large part of the property. She did well, and is all cleaned up again. I noticed some looseness "wobble" with the blades, so I tightened the bearings up. If I spin by hand each will do 2-3 revolutions freely. Then using a drill it spins them with little effort. No slop at all now, just want to make sure I didn't over tighten. This is a task as the scissor lift and deck cover has to be removed. All greased and stored again.

I have been approached with an offer to sell Old Girl. Lock stock and barrel. Guy is out of state so shipping would be on him. He wanted a price so I said $3,500.00 for all. Roper, Snow Blower, 50" Deck, tire chains, and all the documentation. He is agreeable with it plus paying for shipping. I told him I was planning to take her to the October show this year, she will get a fresh oil change, wash and wax. After the show I might fell better selling Her..... I'm not sure. I'll never find one like it in this area again, it was a fluke I got her in the first place. I am at the point I can decline, but $3500 would come in handy, Old Girl is only a show machine, but many memories are there. Am I crazy for even thinking of selling,

Larry, go back to your first post in this thread. Then mosey along from there all the way back up to here. You'll have your answer. :)
