I’m sunburned from being in the sun for hours, we came home with a nearly new propane grill & a new to us TRACTOR!!!! This is a 8N Ford…just what Ernie has wanted since we bought the property. It runs great, but cosmetically, it needs some TLC and a paint job…and of course, he’ll have to buy the attachments… we’re thrilled that he ended up driving it off and for $1000 less than we expected to pay! A new play toy for Ernie! He’s excited. Here he is on crutches…hobbling around then…while I’m standing in line to pay our bill, I look back to where the tractor was and it’s gone…then I see Ernie tooling along the back fenceline on his new toy…and our friend walking behind carrying the crutches! I was ready to strangle them both.
Made a run to Abilene after the auction, while our friends flatbedded the tractor home for us. Didn’t get all the shopping done, but we’ll make a Walmart run tomorrow for the rest of our needs. We returned home at 4:45PM, I ran in and browned my hamburger, added other stuff and ended up with a nice Frito Salad and a tray of cookies to take to the Community Dinner tonight. We actually made it ON TIME…amazed myself :) It’s been a really full day and I’m really exhausted.
Thank you to all who have expressed condolences on the death of my Step-Mom.
