    I hope she makes me some money. Kids love it . So i guess if she doesnt than they can blame her for no college money.

    congrats! and i think its great you bought that from someone on plowsite. that is part of what this site is all about i think. networking and helping eachother out. im sure you will make out very well with it and perhaps end up with MORE college money for the kids down the road?
    i was wondering who would pick that up it looked like a very good tool for a very good price. how did you end up getting it to you? :)
