A Matter Of Timing

I Suppose I Could Live In A Tent On The Back Deck

Y'know, life's got a way of sticking it in ya, then breaking off the handle...

Case in point:

Some time back, I posted about my desire to take an old truck frame and make a parade float/art car/weekend boozer cruiser out of it.

Aside from some poking around on Craigslist, that's as far as it got.  I didn't have the space to store it, nor the money to afford it.

Now, flash forward 6 years.  Got enough money saved to buy an old truck.
Look what appears on eBay:

What do you do with a motorhome that loses a fight with a tree?

Why, you make a flatbed out of it!

What's even better, you put it on eBay for the low price of $1800.

OK, bus ticket to Utah, $200.  200 gallons of diesel,  $600.  Call it $3000 total to get it back to Houston...  Even got a holiday weekend coming up!


I'm buying that house!!  I have no money anymore!


Life, she can be cruel at times.
