Yep, got it all fixed up and have had it sitting our front; was planning to take it back out to the property. Canâ€™t think of too many jobs to do with it though. Nothing I canâ€™t do with a mini-excavator. So, I put an ad up on craigâ€™s List and a couple of days later a guy (Mike) calls me from Hillsborough, Oregon: He wants to come up and see it. So he drives up and spends about half an hour saying â€œWhat a brute!â€ and â€œI love it!â€. But he had to talk his wife into it firstâ€¦.<G>Â He called back yesterday willing to meet my price and has already sent a bank check in the mail. Cool! Itâ€™s a great little dozer and Iâ€™ve done a LOT of work with it; but I really donâ€™t have much more use for it.
So now Iâ€™m out looking for a mini-excavatorâ€¦.
Spent this afternoon and evening canning my annual supply of home made chili. SWMBO and I really like my chili so once a year or so I can 30-40 pint jars of it for those times we don’t feel like cooking and want something quick and easy. So we pop the top on a pint of chili, micronuke it for 2 minutes and we have dinner. Unfortunately SWMBO mixes hers with Spaghetti!
