$2......treasure!

my $2 treasure............i don't know why i love old barns, or... anything  that relates to one.......i always see the cow feeders in the barn lot and love them as much as the barn.....
thus this story begins.......... we were at one of our son-in-laws auctions last Fri....mainly to bid for someone else on something.......walking through the barnlot...i happened to "fall in love with this feeder"..........mr. priaire blue said he didn't mind if i bid........my heart raced as Stephen asked for the bid.....he got $1.....i got it for $2..............mr. prairie blue laughing & son in law shaking his head.........
it is still safely in the truck bed as i make a decision for it's new home........
mr. prairie blue even asked the other day if i would like to ride in the back and enter a parade.........there is a thought!...............
i am glad he is still smiling and loving me so...........i caught him on a good day for this one...how many hubs would load a cow feeder up for their wife to sit in the yard?.........i think it will go beside the "outhouse"......now that is whole other story!...............................
......................................................................... i am blessed !

I just love that some of us have special hubbies that will never ask why but do it to make you happy. Sounds like you have a keeper.
Show us a picture when you have your feeder in place. I think it would be great piled with pumpkins and fall flowers!

Love it, too, and think it will be wonderful in the yard. I do hope you post pics of it when it is all set up..... pumpkins and mums to decorate it for fall sounds perfect!!!
High five to your hubby for being such a good sport! My dh wouldn't understand, but wouldn't mind me getting it, either... :) Hurray for the good guys!
