well it was kind of a rain/snow day today. so i didn't work but... as i was driving around to day i drove by a grage sale and they had a used blue bird thatcher. so i stoped and looked at it. they wanted 350 bucks for it, it runs great but it didn't come with flail reel blades on it. so i picked it up. tell me i got a good deal, cuz i know they retail for like 900.
