My wife is going to freak & probably kill me..

Here is the short version.....I see on Ebay some lady in my area selling an actual harness sulky...mind you not a ufo or anything like that but a vintage bike with all working parts, excellent condition.

They have it listed for $1,000 so I offer $200 cash & the lady freakin accepts the offer.
How the hell am I going to get a race bike into the back of my suv- or suppose I could pull it down the highway laughing guy laughing guy

Wife has no idea & have no idea what the hell I am going to do with it... trotter trotter trotter trotter

Lol sounds to me like u have no idea what you're gonna do w/ it either. I'd probably tell her it's an investment in a new career. How much do one of those things weigh?

Tibetan Kapala.. Human skull (actual skull) w/ a bunch of ornate metal, used to be used in rituals where blood was boiled in it. Don't actually believe in the shit, just felt like a ballet paying 1700$ for what was eventually used as a fancy ash tray. Got rid of, encountered bad luck, thing spooked me sold for 250$ on Craigslist

Insane, you kidding me? That's a great buy, esp for 200 bucks! Got a link to the ebay page? Pretty sure they keep them up for awhile after the auction ends. Must see pics!! Vintage sulkies are a great thing to collect. Only now you'll need to pick up another one down the road to call it a collection.

I've always wanted to see a track promo where they race in vintage sulkies. There's got to be enough of them out there to fill a field.

I'm sure the seller will deliver for a small fee. Pay them well to show your appreciation for the $800 discount.

Purple Laverne, I say you bring it home and put it on your front lawn. When I was at Hawthorne many years ago they had this big plastic Harness horse. Ask them if you can borrow it for Christmas. Then ask Plainridge Raceway if you can borrow one of their lifeless drivers to sit in the sulky on your lawn. You will be the talk of your area, people will come from all over to see your decorations!

Obvious libertarian but apolitical, don't keep up to date w/ current events enough to make an educated decision. Re: skull, when your income comes from gambling it can be hard to take the $ "seriously" as if I spent a 14 hr day at the factory. Kind of lose respect for it at times

Its a topic for another day, but it is amazing how stores make millions every year on lost/un-used gift cards. I guess same is seen every year in paramutual wagering with uncashed tickets, especially scratches, DQ's, and uncashed vouchers.

Miss,
The last time I was at Del Insko's farm in IL. the Loft above the stalls was piled high with old sulkies.
I am sure some he used at Roosevelt Raceway.
I bet he would dam near give them away just to clean house.

Larry, I posted a while back about the fact I find vouchers all the time and return them. One thing I would question is whether its a good idea to bring it to a teller? or window?....after all what do they do with it? cash it and keep the money? I hold the ticket until the person comes back...and they ALWAYS come back...I then ask the person how much the voucher was for and if they know, I give it to them...and want nothing in return.
While I believe in Karma and will always return a voucher that is not mine, I was never as lucky as you. I do nice things and go into ice cold streaks laughing guy
