My wife & I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary picking up some parts for her Gilson at "ALMOST HEAVEN GARDEN TRACTOR SALVAGE" on Saturday.

Do we know how to have fun or what!

Happy Anniversary !!

 

I understand :D  my wife and I went to the UP for our 35th. Stopped at quilt shops all along the way and bought an Ohio Steel plow from a member on here on the way up and a Cub 1200 and stopped again for a 44A deck on the way back ! Stayed at some swanky bed and breakfasts above the bridge and visited the Upper and Lower Tahquamenon Falls, Whitefish Lighthouse, Paradise Bird Sanctuary, Shipwreck Museum, Soo Locks and of course the Mackinaw Bridge itself :thumbs: That little Dakota P/U was packed to the roof in the jump-seat area by the time we got back and the back was a bit tight too !

Who says you can't enjoy your hobbies as a couple !

Happy anniversary.

Mine is tomorrow, 29 years.

Lucky you, that your wife likes tractors. My wife has no, I mean, no interest in tractors. Oh, well.

Happy 22!  Where is the junkyard place?? I see you are in IN like me and wanted to know if nearby?   Looks like a few acres of stuff! Expensive? You can take off your own parts? I see a toolbox there, that is why asking Don't all look like junk either.  My wife "allows" me to stop and look, says NO for me, then gets mad when I go back and say Yes!  Kinda fun for a few days after.

It is right in your backyard...Bluffton right on the main drag.

I was through Huntington on Saturday morning.

You need to call to make an appointment...but it is to make sure someone will be there when you come.

Father & son run/operate it and the son has another (daily) job. We called and made the appointment with the son and he was easy to work with.
