Another reason I love winter - auctions! I love going to farm machinery auctions. I hardly ever buy anything, but the possibility that I might is tantalizing. I also enjoy listening to the auctioneers as their cadence spills out over the microphone. And you have to enjoy the fact that there are always food stands that have hamburgers and polish dogs ready to eat by 10 AM.
The anticipation is akin to the night before your birthday as a 5 year old. I probably won't sleep much tonight.
At auction tomorrow for my consideration: A Case backhoe, a Great Plains 60' 3 point spray boom, miscellaneous crap. I doubt I'll buy much, but who knows? At the very least, I'll come home with a belly full of hamburger, polish dog, and coffee.
