I Ain't Gonna Let 'em Catch 'The Midnight Rider'!!!!

I Bought... and Sold... well... at Gold Rush...
Had little to bring home....
but then...a Nice Lady...approached me.... during the show.... that had several...barns full...and a Farm House... deep in Wisconsin... and...asked if I would be interested...in taking a peek...
Hmmm...
Well... I was alone.... and my time is going to be TIGHT...with The Memorial Day Weekend Sale....just around the bend... and...I was half way there...in Minnesota...
so...
I Packed...Racked and Stacked The FUSO... FAST...
as I was half loaded...two men asked if I need a porter...
You Bet Ya!
I was on the road by around 5...
and headed East... across the Mighty Miss... and into God's Country!!!
Holy Smokes...
I parked the FUSO... at her Farm...and rode with her...to several buildings full...of Amazing things...
but....as we were riding...she shared something with me...
{she said..." I don't know why I'm going to tell you this"...{we had really...just met...} {a personal matter}...and I basically... finished her sentence...
I knew... somehow... exactly...what was going on...
She was stunned...
me...not so much...
The Barn's Full... wasn't the reason...I was called on this Mid Night...Run...
but...once we figured that out...
Back To The Barn's...FULL!!!!
We shuttled my Truck Loads of Purchases...to the Farm...where the FUSO was parked... So Much for the Old FUSO...Breathing Easy...Coming Home! Holy Smokes...We Racked..and Stacked...and..I have to Go Back!!!! {maybe...many...times...}
It was after 2 a.m. when The FUSO...Henriette Marie...{the Beautiful Bust, seat belted in...riding Shotgun!} and I pulled into Fairfax...
The Angels Carried Us...
I could barely stay awake...
Some of the Mountains...we Climbed...with the Heavy load...on the Old FUSO....oh my...I had 'er Floored....and could only get up to 35....Steep Grades!...and Winding Two Lane... Highways... in The Blackest....of Night...oh my...
The Radio...Blaring...Old Country Music...
The window...up...and down...I needed the fresh air...but...then...froze...
If...I said...I was tired...before...
well...
I gotta tell ya...
I was on my knees...
walking to the house...last night...
but...Look What I Saw...
when I walked in the door....
This...This...
This Lovely Mother's Day Card...was nestled into a Beautiful Flower Basket....with a Happy Mother's Day Balloon...from Justin, Katie...and Justin 'J'...
Priceless....
Made my Day!
{Just talked with Liz...Miss Scarlett is Much Better... Thank God... I was worried...Sick!}
