Will someone please buy this and donate it to me? Or, if that is too much, how about his other one?

I can sleep standing up , but it still has 4 + days to go. Can hardly wait to see if I got it for you . Any way, got this call today, and .... well who knows what's in this turn of the century farm nearby that no one has been in yet . May be this weekend . Probably the regular "JUNK", RUST, dust, and dirt . Paul

Bill, donations of this magnitude should go to the less fortunate. Let's see, when I was born my dad took one look at me and slapped my mom. When I started walking they had to hang a steak around my neck to get the dog to play with me. From the ages 5-12 I only had one close friend, we liked the same things like food, movies, games, went everywhere together. We even looked alike. On my 13th birthday mom took my mirror away and my friend disappeared. In Little League I played 3rd base, but then they replaced that little square, white bag that got lost and didn't need me anymore. At 14 I saved up money from working local farms and bought a real nice used bicycle, had a hard time riding it, but it got easier a year later when I saved up enough to buy the wheels for it, then it got stolen. I could go on, but I think you get the idea, so you all can pitch in and send the engine to me. David.

Damn David, I needed a towel to dry my eye's! I'll tell you what. After I win the POWERBALL lottery tonight, I will buy the engine and have it shipped too you!!

Gosh, I just feel so sorry for what that poor dog had to go through!

If you hit the powerball Jim I'll be expecting a big gala and everybody on the stak invited to it.

Don't worry so much about that dog, being a rabbit dog it got treated better than any of us. God rest it's little Beagle soul. I did a lot of rabbit hunting with it. I didn't have a gun for a while. I used to just look at them and ugly them to death, but it tore them up so bad that dad finally gave me a shotgun. David.

Better question is, why didn't he just use his talent and build snares for that beagle to chase rabbits into, or make himself a slingshot and use it on the rabbit after that fine dog treed the rabbit?

Well Bob, I'm not a complete hick. Of course I had shells, that's what I used to throw at them to stun them, THEN I would knock them in the head with the shotgun. David.

My dad told a story of a hound the family had in the 20's.. Set out a coon pelt stretcher and it would tree coons, Set out one for a opposum and it would tree a opposum.. One day his mother set out the ironing board on the poarch and the dog never came back. Told to me when I was young enough to believe it..for a little while. Randy Hart Ohio
