I got some of it unloaded. It's not as bad I thought. The casters look horrible, but they rotate and the steering sulky isn't frozen either.

The biggest bummer was the planter shaft. It has the small bit set on it. The bummer is one of the bits is missing.

Ron, you may want to reconsider bringing her to Chambersburg... and I am here for you, so you could have said that you "were just picking up some stuff for Rich" and I would have backed you up..

I told her I was taking it all to Chambersburg, so she was just fine with that. Nothing in the lot that she wanted.

Thanks for the offer. That can be dangerous. Heck, she thinks so much stuff here belongs to Don, that he's afraid to come to Maryland.

Re: Asked the Wife if she wanted to go for a drive, she did, now she's mad.

Hey when we go for a ride and I want to take the truck, I tell her the puppy likes the truck. It has worked a few times. If the trailer is attached, she knows something is up. Just buy her a tiller, oh I tried that. It does not work. I have a great wife, she puts up with all my bargains.
