A New Acquisition

It is been so hot today that I didn't have the energy to do much of anything.  Combine that with a restless night and I've spent much of the day just laying around.  My husband, however, has been busy doing chores and going to Huntsville to buy some fuel, a new battery and some other needed supplies for his newest acquisition.
He has been hoping to buy a tractor for quite a while but the cost had put the purchase in the 'some day' file.  Recently, he has been fixing up his motorcycle to sell in order to raise some money.  At quilt group yesterday, one of the ladies, who is selling her home, mentioned she had a tractor for sale.   The price was in our range so we went out in the evening to have a look and bought it.  Husband is pleased and I am happy for him. We will be picking it up later this week and then he will need to learn how to operate it and install the accessories.
The tractor will be used to pulling downed trees from the bush, some snow removal and, I am sure, many other things.  We won't be able to do all the snow plowing with it but should be able to move the lighter amounts which will help cut down on the cost.  We can add a blower to it later.
So, a happy day in the back woods.

  1. Best of luck with the new toy/tool. A tractor to a man is like a sewing machine to us quilters.
