Cliff hit the jackpot!

Three weeks ago, Cliff decided to buy a buffer.  Don't ask me what it is, all I know is it is something he can use when he's restoring old tractors.  After looking into prices, he decided he didn't need one THAT bad and stopped looking at them.  

Yesterday evening a Facebook friend messaged me to say she had not one, but two of them, and Cliff was welcome to them.  Today we looked her up.  Of course, we had to get a picture, because if there is no picture of an event, it didn't really happen.  Right?

  Cliff's getting pretty good at taking pictures.  

I like this one.  I'm not sure if Cliff intended to take it or not, but you can tell we are having a good conversation.  

In case you missed the picture of me and her sister, I'll throw that in too.  There is some family resemblance.   

I just came back from the shop, and Cliff is like a kid at Christmas.
He actually brought home three buffers.  This big one needed a minor repair job, something about the brushes, but Cliff already has it working.  The buffer on the right is an air tool that Cliff can use with his air compressor.  

This one worked great on the first try.  So Cliff has three, count 'em, three, working buffers.  I did offer to pay Judy something for them, but she just wanted Cliff to have them.  I don't think she has any idea how happy her generosity has made him.  It will be interesting to see which one he likes best.  One thing he especially likes about all of them is that they are from back in the days when things were made to last.

I'm just glad Cliff can use them, I sure couldn't! These were old tools but Cliff didn't seem to mind! I thought the pictures would be Photo-Shopped, but I'm sure they weren't!
