I just wanted to share with you something my wife done for me last Saturday.
I have been looking for a cheap trailer that I could use to haul logs with and there was going to be a farm equipment auction in our home town last Saturday. We rode out and looked at what they were going to be auctioning and found "my trailer". The only thing was that I had to work the day of the auction and would not be able to be there. I was trying to think of someone that could be there for me when my wife said she would go.
I don't know if you have ever attended an equipment action before, but to tell you my wife would feel out of place, would be an understatement. She insisted that she could handle it. Farm auctions are mainly attended by older to middle aged men of the farmer/business man type. My daddy has farmed all his life so I've been to a few of these auctions. I think even I would have felt a little intimidated biding against some of these guys.
She and my son were there at 9a.m. when they opened. It was a cool rainy day, and she stayed till about 2p.m. when they finally auctioned "my trailer". She had two other guys biding against her but she won it at $275. When she called me to tell me that she had won it, I was more proud of her than I was of getting the trailer. I am truly blessed to have her.
My beautiful wife of 14 years.
I'll post more about getting the trailer ready for hauling logs later.
