Wishing you had something.

Have you ever sat around and thought I sure could use this or that. Someone upstairs must look out for ole Jim.
Last time we had brush pickup here I was thinking I wish I had a ladder that would reach up in my trees and cut more limbs out. I have a 20 footer but can,t reach all the way up in them trees.
 Today I had to get my ole truck inspected  and on the way home I spot this saw on the curb & a lady setting things out. This month is junk pickup around here and people set things out they don't wont and the city comes by and picks it up. I stop by and ask the lady if she was throwing out that saw. She says no but I can have it for $50.00. She then says all the stuff under the tree was free. I wander over there and snatch a 32 foot ladder that looks new. Some wooden shaft golf clubs and more metal shaft clubs with bag, and a animal trap.
It was not long ago that I wished I had a bigger ladder & now I have one. A few years ago the wife & I was talking about wanting a boat but could not justify the money for one. It was not long before I had 3 boats that did not cost me a dime. One boat was a 3 year old Skeeter bass boat with nothing wrong with it. The old boy was moving and could not take it with him so he just up and gives it to me.
I guess the old saying watch out for what you wish for is true.

Just saw this. Must have been a hell of a bicycle.
