I haven't been home in over a month... stuck workin' in Manhattan now.
So Mary found this little gem... greasy, but in good running shape. It came
with the cute wagon, for a grand total of $145

What can I say? It has the syncro-balanced briggs, hydro pump, variable
speed and a seat... (being recovered now).

She's a winner...
and the tractor too.

That's a great way to get a tractor. Tell Mary she did good. Those little wagons aren't that cheap.

Nice, that's gonna be a good runner. Is the tin MIA? My B10 has the same "naked" look, but yours runs!

Yeah, she knew she'd get points for this find... she was yard sailing last weekend and saw it... and called me even before getting close enough to it to identify it... I said offer a hundred and see what happens. The wagon was the extra $45... very handy.

And yes, the hood is probably now a floorboard in someone's old truck. The grill is gone too... the supports cut off at the ankles.
But my B-10 isn't put back together yet... I'll borrow them till I find replacements. She wants to use this one to mow the front field... (I mean yard)... and to put the snow blower on it for winter.

I need that bigger garage soon, but I might be stuck in the city for quite awhile... I'm supervising the building of IHOPs now... the first one in Manhattan. Not sure if I like it or not yet... too much $$$ involved for my poor blood.

thanks
walt

oh yeah, dstaggs, today at the auction, I got three ladders, and two hotdogs... she got a big air compressor, a big wheeled push mower, a homelite weedeater, two electric scooters, a motorcycle jack and a tile cutter... and the hotdogs weren't that good.

thanks

Mary does a great job finding the good stuff. May have to add on for storage of it all.

I caught her doing body work and paint this morning.
The compressor is done, the hood is being done, and
the snow blower is "on deck".

Don't mention a new shed yet, she's got a home depot card!!!!

Looks like she is having a good time. Hard to find someone that jumps in with both feet to help. Hang on to Mary. She's definitely a keeper.
