It's funny how life changes from minute to minute. In the time it took to type my last post to now, all has changed (for the better)
Here's the deal:
It was my wifes turn to get a big purchace of something she wanted. I got a new bike the previous summer. She has been quilting for years and has always taken her work in somewhere to be quilted on those big machines. She has wanted a quilter for several years. Those things start at around $8000.00 and go up. I kept saying "8 grand for a sewing machine?" She would say "Ya but I can also start charging for my work on it. It will pay for itself."
In the mean time I got this funny bug when I came across a local school bus, in January. I just had to have it, it was there and I had some money. I bought it without saying a word to the wife. Out of pure guilt, I have hidden it (in plain sight) for 7 months now. Not to mention some of the outright lies I have told when UPS would drop things off at the door and she was home. Try and explain a 110 gal. water tank on your porch.
She found a barely used machine here locally and took a friend (that owns one)over to look at it. She just called me at work and said she bought the machine for $5400.00 bucks. Her friend said it's in excellent shape and a steal of a deal.
SO, She got her sewing machine and now it's my turn for a toy.
Guess what ...........I think I'll buy a bus
I'll still wait a month or so, and I'm sure the truth will all be told, But I'll have a 12'x3' industrial long arm quilter behind me to back up my story.
Thank you Bus God.
I think Jesus drives a International/wayne/DT466/Allison643, baby!
ALSO: If anyone here trys for a little blackmail, I will deny everything and move to Panama......er Texas.
