Long Friday

Today started off before breakfast with a knock on the door. Was a guy I grew up with, that I had seen at a grocery store a month or so ago, and had mentioned then that I had a car or two for sale. He had gotten an old truck that needed a motor and decided to check with me and see what kind of engine was in the Crown Vic that I had told him about. We rode over and looked at it, and at some others that were parked by it. Then took a ride down into the field and looked at some down there. He made an offer on one and left his number for me to call the owner of the Crown Vic and see if he would take a bit less for it. He would and I called him back and he said he’d take the other 3 too. So that was 5 sold before breakfast. I ate and went to unlock the gate so the roll back could get in. They got here and we talked about some of the others and I sold them 6 more junkers. Before the day was out they ended up buying a total of 14. They finished up with the last load about 9:30 pm. I’m beat and have a few less vehicles. Still have 10 cars and trucks left counting the 2 we drive. πŸ™„ They are interested in some of the others but I haven’t decided to get rid of them yet. May end up selling them a bunch of other stuff as they are interested in any kind of scrap metal and I have got piles of old washers and dryers and fridges and other stuff like that. They told me to pile it all up and they would come over and make me an offer so I guess in the next few weeks I’ll do just that.

Think I am gonna read some feeds and then call it a night. Hoping that the storms wait till daylight to get here. Till tomorrow… πŸ˜‰
