Most friends of ours know how great Brian is mechanically. However, what most may not know, is how brilliant and economically inclined he is! It is a little embarrassing to share, but so far he has brought home two initally, non-working machines and got them working for about the price of peanuts. I am usually a little reluctant to see what he may bring home from the dump (we have to take our trash in), especially if he may want to use it in the house. Thankfully, this has never happened but recently the captured items have been very useful.
So, until the next trip to the dumps. Who knows what was someone else's trash will become our treasure. :)
