Farm Auction

We went to the farm auction that they have every year here. There were lots of people there. I think a lot just go to visit. The weather wasn’t to bad in the mornings but by the afternoons the wind picked up ever day, and it is so dry that it just blew the dirt , by the time we got done every day I was so full of dirt.

We did a few good bargains Andy got a hay rake that he has been wanting for several years. We picked up some good cedar corner post for very cheap.
I got four good gas cans for five dollars A whole stack of lariat ropes for 65 dollars, I sold one there for 10 dollars, so I only spent 55 on them. I will trade out some of our older ropes for some of these, then the rest of them I am going to make some vases and bowls for gifts .

I wish I would have remembered to take my camera so I could show you our next buy. We got a fifth wheel camper trailer for 100 dollars it needs some work, and the outside is kind of ugly, but on the inside some one put tongue and grove wood on all the walls and ceiling and did a lot of remodeling in it. So a little work and some cleaning I think it will be real nice. The bathroom isn’t in to good of shape so we are going to rip it out and put in a small bedroom and put a set of bunk beds in it for the girls. e will just have an out house. The upper part holds a king size bed we have an extra queen size so we are going to put that in there and that will leave some room for a small dresser. Will put a small wood stove in it for heat.  Where we are wanting to put it there is no electric or running water. I am excited to get it home and get to work on it.

Joleen wants us to fix it so she can live in it lol. Don’t know why she is in such a big hurry to move out once she sees what it is all about being on your own she will just want to move back lol.

And I got a good sunburn seems like I always get my first burn/tan at the auction every year.

So a very busy week-end hope you all had a great week-end.


  1. You got some great deals. Would love to see pictures of your 5 th wheel when it's done.
