We have gotten several small cash tips and dozens of lawn mowers and weed eaters. The best one was about 2 weeks ago my customer gave me this sons old truck. It is a 1989 v6 4x4 Chevy s-10 in great shape with only 60,000 miles. I now have it for sale for 1500.00. Also have gotten several nice riding mowers over the last few years and a vintage 3 wheeler that started as soon as we filled it with gas.
