This sounds VERY eerily familiar. Had a guy from Nashville Michigan drive in here Monday afternoon. Wondered if I knew anybody around here who had recently bought a Brahman bull. Said the guy worked in some Ford test facility in Grand Rapids. He wasn't looking for him so much as a guy who was supposed to be living with him. That kid owed him a bunch of money. Had rented a house from him in Ionia,was waiting on a loan to buy it,so wasn't paying the rent. He moved out,left a big mess that cost the old one legged guy $1200 to get cleaned up. Now he thinks the guy stole his dog to boot. Said the money wasn't the big issue,he just wanted his dog back.
He said he was getting all kinds of sob stories out of him. Brother killed himself,now he had cancer and was in Chicago one day,Buffalo the next being treated. Was gonna reroof the old guys house for what he owed him,on and on and on.
The old guy did say that he had a Super 55 Diesel with a loader that he was thinking about turning loose. He has my phone number. I told him to call me if he decides to get rid of it. Turns out he was a Swede and an Oliver guy from way back,so we had a two hour talk while he was here.
