Earlier in the week I'd seen and answered an ad on Craigslist. The seller was offering a tractor with backhoe, front loader, post hole digger, and three point hitch. Yes, he wanted a fair price for it, but it was worth taking a look. As it turns out, the tractor was about an hour and half's drive from here, and it was a lovely afternoon for a drive. So, we climbed in the little Amigo and headed over to take a look-see.

Since the seller had to first rent a trailer with which to haul our tractor, Joe and I decided we might as well stop and enjoy a meal. Neither of us had yet eaten today, and it was nearing 4PM. We decided on a little Mexican restaurant and the choice was a good one. The food was tasty and the price was reasonable.
Back at the old farmhouse, we watered flowers and took photos of their progress as we eagerly awaited the arrival of our new best friend!

And sure enough, just before dusk, she arrived. The seller was great and spent an hour out there, battling the mosquitoes, giving us the full demonstration while I videoed and Joe paid attention.

So, though there COULD have been a barbecue on our new deck this weekend .... Craigslist superseded!
