yeah - kills me too.

There's a family in town like that. Older, retired, all their old equipment is out in the elements.

I had stopped by one day to see if they might consider selling one of their older rakes to our 4H club so the kids could restore it and put it back into use.

Answer was pretty much "no, and get the hell of my porch", but said less politely.

Obviously it's their's to do what they want,it's just too bad that somebody wants to just watch it all rust into the earth.

Not a lot of the old stuff left around here anywmore. Used to be you couldn't drive down a road without seeing 20 different old implements in some level of disrepair stuck in the woods and brushlines - But scrappers are making it all vanish almost over night.

So their stuff all just sits out there rotting away, and soon enough scrappers are going to steal that too - and THAT's the part that really kills me.

ah well.

Guess it'll just make the ones we save that much more rare and special.

Sore topic with me too, not that I want it for myself but I know in many cases there is someone that might put it back to use or restore it, rather than have it rot out in a field or fence row. Some folks are too pig headed to realize that when they pass someone will get it, the scrapper or other, and they will get nothing out of it. Maybe the family will get scrap value or get beaten out of it by crooks.
