A boy with his new toys.
Now, let's get this right out in the open. I've never been one who has espoused any of the principles of reincarnation. But perhaps I might want to do some reading up on that subject.
Yessir pardner, went out West and fancied I get myself a Stetson. Found one in a store in Sisters, Oregon, but wasn't completely to my liking. However got all the stats I needed and yes, ordered it online. Always wanted one, and now it's done and sitting pretty atop Mr. Excitement's head. This other little baby I've been looking for since the spring. Checking out Craig's List, local ATV dealerships and word of mouth, I've been looking for either a Honda Rancher or Foreman. Both came highly recommended as a used machine. While I was 'away', my buddy Curt called and said he had found one for me in pretty 'mint' condition. He said he knew a guy at the dealership, and the machine was a 'steal'. He even got the company to knock off $200. So, I'm in west coast Portland and the atv is in Topsham, near Brunswick, Maine. A quick phone call, a passing of a number on a piece of plastic, and I was the proud owner of a Rancher 350 4X4. The mechanic, who lives up the street, even hauled it home for me and put it in the garage, safe and sound. This 4-wheeler is going to save the life of my garden tractor. No more lugging trailer loads of wood to my shed.
Now, here's the question.
Was I EVER a real cowboy in my other life?
