Why I love a garage sale

After years of griping about shoveling.......This was the year I was going to get myself a blower. Everyone that knew me was aware that I was done. So when I was driving down my block past a garage sale and a snow blower on the lawn caught my eye, my wife just sighed and said "go see what they want for it"

After pretty much skipping down the block, I find out it belongs to the homeowners Father In Law and he tells me it didn't start the last time he tried it out and I could have it for $20. So I took it.

Seems I have a 2002 932103 ST624 to get running for next winter.

And that is why I love garage sales.

Dang, you need to get that guy's father-in-laws address and send him a thank you note!

BTW, welcome to SBF.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Once upon a time..

My sister was having a garage sale at her condo. She was in her 40's at the time, and not too bad looking. Some poor dweeby looking guy was looking around, and finally asked "Got anything else?". I said he could have her (my sister) for $20. He got all excited and asked "Why so cheap?". I told him "Well, we discount for mileage". My sister has no sense of humor.

Great score, and welcome aboard!

Toro 3650 (primary)
Toro 2450 (recent purchase)
Toro PowerLite (3hp)
Craftsman 3/20 (also recent, will likely flip)
Toro 1800 electric (gone)
Shovels (and aspirin)
