We are having a graduation open house for my daughter Ashlynn tomorrow. My wife has been in charge of it like most wives are when it comes to things like that. Ashlynn wanted to have the open house at our place so we rented a tent, porta-potty and spent the last couple of weeks getting everything ready. A friend from church is grilling 45 chickens and other friends as well as my wife are preparing enough food to feed an army.
As I started adding up all the expenses it dawned on me that maybe I need to generate some cash to help offset some of the cost. I decided to put a 1929 John Deere 1-1/2 HP Model E engine of mine on Craigslist. I bought it at a garage sale probably 10-15 years ago. Anyway, I posted it on Wednesday and have had hits from Ohio, Florida and even California. That really surprised me. I surely didn't expect that kind of response The potential buyers from Florida and California have both asked if I would work with them on shipping. I've agreed but nobody has come up with cash yet so it's still setting here. It's kind of fun checking my e-mail to see where the next response will come from.
