The thermos for $.50 is good one. Why the snow suit for a 10 year old? Are you actually going into the resale business? The chicken thing is a bit odd for me, never understood why people get into chickens.  I see it if you're just a dirt farmer..... Whatever floats your boat.

Bob, I just got back from a 3 day weekend of camping at ricker pond. I fished the wells river and it's loaded with native brown trout, that are waiting to be fried for dinner. I also rode the bike trail and that was great. I love that campground, quiet, clean and cheap cabins to rent, which works great for me because I couldn't hear the loons all night, slept like a baby. I hadn't fished a stream in quite awhile and now I'm hooked!

That sounds great. Lets go some time. What kind of gear did you use? My wife is all pumped to fish. Bass season opens on Saturday. I would not mind catching a few and seeing how they taste.

That's funny Bob, I also caught a nice smallmouth and that'll be frying in a about an hour from now.....OOPS! My wife wants to go back too, and she doesn't mind hanging around for a few hours playing guitar while I fish. I'll look at my schedule and see when I can fit in another long weekend. Ricker doesn't get the crowds like Groton, so a cabin or two should be available. It was really quiet, with few (considering how nice it was), folks camping. Maybe it's because it's in a dead cell zone for Verizon and AT&T, awesome place for sure.

I was using trout worms on a #6 hook, on light gear.

Bob, I guess I didn't break the law. You can fish for smallmouth bass in streams (that's where I caught one), starting the 2nd weekend in april.

Did 820.00 at Waterbury today. First time I did that. I got there at 6:45 and left at 3:00pm. Fun talking to people and taking their money. Sold mostly junk from my barn.

It was interesting, I sold that fiddle you gave me for 10 bucks to this old guy who claimed to have 25 fiddles. He then came back and bought both the guitars I was selling for 225. He didnt dicker just bought them. I talked to him about getting a fiddle for my kid for his birthday. We went to his house today in Brookfeild and purchased a tuned playable fiddle for 60 bucks in a case. The guy told me he already sold the guitars I sold him to some guy in Minnesota. I dont get it they were both junk. Then he pulls out an old Yamaha he said he got for 5 bucks. He told me he would sell that for 100 bucks. I had to leave because he made no sense. I did buy the fiddle and probably should have picked that Yamaha up. It just seemed odd that he would purchase a guitar from me that was all out of whack for the same money he would sell me a fine playing Yamaha. I would have traded both of my junky guitars for the Yamaha even. The guy lives in this little house on Rt12 which is just a camp. No kitchen just instruments hanging all over the place. Very strange, I felt like he was operating on a different plain.

I was working today in the yard so I figured I would tap into the Motorcycle traffic passing my driveway. I put the Blue BMW down there with a sign on it. In 30 minutes it looks like I found a buyer. I was not sure that would work on a Monday. Looks like 2800 bucks and Big Blue is going down the road. Now I still need to either Ride the Red one or sell it. The guy is coming back later this afternoon.

I cant believe it. I got 3 other calls just from an hour along the road. I sold it to the first guy. He seemed like a good fit. One less internal combustion motor to deal with. He came with 2800 cash. I gave him the bags and a tire. Win win as far as I am concerned. I did take it on one last ride up the gap. What a piece of junk RT17 is. Unbelievable really. We can no longer afford paved roads in Vermont. We cant afford to take care of them. So in the last 10 days I generated $4650 selling stuff and working a little.

Today I drove up to Johnson in search of a 1909 Safe. I found the place but was early so I went back down the road to a covered bridge to read 7days. A few minutes later two government cars pulled up and Jim Marshall gets out of one. I yelled at him Marshall you bum! Pretty funny to run into him. He was courting FEMA people to a place where the river ripped a big hole in the road during Irene.   apparently our government is still paying out money years after the storm. I didnt buy that safe it was not entirely working and I was afraid to move the thing. The building it was in might have collapsed. I then proceeded to Cambridge where I had a very nice tour of the Lister and Schneider trails in Pleasant valley. I meet a guy who let me tag along and it was a good 2 hour tour. These trails are in great shape and you cna spend a few hours in there if you want to.

Maybe you'll finally get rid of all that stuff you have up thar on the mountain and have so much extra cash that you decide to treat your ski friends with flights to colorado for a ski vaca. I'll cover the housing and food...... You do like liver and onions.....right?!

I must say, you are a good seller. I like how organized you are with the book keeping. I don't believe I've ever seen a flea market vendor write down his sales in a book. 

Look out Erik!
