Old Dudes ROCK!!!! {respectfully....saying...}

Gus and Ed...stopped by this morn...bright and early....on their way to the Scrap Yard... oh my... we unloaded a pile of Rotary Hoe Blades... then...I spied a pair of the Gnarliest...Old..Old...Hand Forged, Pig Tail Hooks... bolted to a Horse Drawn Harrow... {also, going to the scrap yard...yeeeeash!} I made Gus...an offer he could not refuse...to climb up, in the truck....and cut 'em off.... He fired up the torch...and within a few moments.... they were rescued...from the scrap heap....These babies...are soooo cool... I'll pop the bolts out....they can mount flush, on a door....or wall....and hang some gnarly thing!
I Love these Boys... They are in their 80's....and work harder than most men I know, half their age....Every Single Day! Hot...Cold...no matter... They are Scrappers....Junkers... Iron Men.... They knew, and worked around my Dad.... Stood toe to toe, with him, at auctions...buying this old Scrap....{and me, when I was a little girl...}
I Love listening to them talk...about those days... I Love...just standing next to them... I soak all the old times... into my soul...
A Great way...to Start the Day!!!
{I'm gathering...and gathering...for the Fast approaching, Fall Harvest Sale...it's gonna be a BIG One!}
{It was Great seeing Polly...{Pollyanns, Mt.Vernon, Iowa} and Tommie {FUEL Art and Espresso, Mt.Vernon, Iowa} My Sweet Pals, Vi, and Bob...It was a very.....good day.... }
Hope you...have a Great Day...
Love to Ya...
