Hey Lance!

I'm glad to hear some of the implements went to a good home! A friend of mine was there and said they were going for almost nothing. Did you get the two way JD plow?? And/or the steel wheel intl oneway??

Sort of weird story - had to have a guy with a loader help take a 283 cotton basket off my grandpa's 4020 yesterday. Turned out it was the same guy that hauled off 2 old implements from my grandpa's place by mistake to the scrappers a few weeks ago.

I had never met the guy in person, but was pretty upset about losing those two implements (since my uncle was supposed to have clearly marked everything I was going to keep), but the old fellow was so helpful, and elderly, and so colorful and hardworking, it was hard to be mad at him for long...

Anyway, as I told him how much I hate scrappers & salvage yards, he started in with his tale of woe about seeing a ton of good long sheet tinwork at the same salvage yard that he had hauled my implements to and he was really disgusted that those yard guys wouldn't sell it to him!! He went on & on about how that was good tin and he could put it to good use! So at least he got a taste of what is like... ha...

I don't know what the answer is in general - I'm saving as much as I can and glad ya'll are, too...

Both off those were things I didn"t bid on. I droves off without my come a longs and all they had to load was a small skid steer. I ended up with the wooden manure spreader a d horse drawn planter a horse drawn two row stalk chopper a 2 bottom Oliver plow ands a few smalls. I ran the uh thresher up to 1000 and that was definitely the buy of the day. I would bet I bid on half the equipment trying to get prices up for them.
