Not into playing games...

There will be no Billy, like I had said this morning. We found Billy and his friend Snowy on Craigslist and we went and looked at them yesterday and liked them. The girl was asking $175 for the pair. I never tried to haggle her on the price or anything. She wanted us to pick them up between 10 and 10:30 this morning. No problem. We went to bed early last night........riding horses is really tiring. Woke up this morning to find a text from her that we needed to come in the evening because the children that helped her bottle feed him needed to say their goodbyes. I texted her back asking what time to come. No reply ALL day!

Danny was getting rather antsy and wanted to go get them home into their new digs. So I texted her again at 3:12 pm and said we are on our way. She replied we aren't there but will be back at 5PM. I said OK we will be there at 5PM. Since we are an hour away and had to stop at the ATM to get cash, we left our house at 4PM. 16 minutes down the road I recieve a text from her that reads.......... something like this...... "My neighbor really wants Billy and offered me $220 for him but you and your husband are very nice people and I want to do whats right with you. Would you be willing to give me $200 for the pair?"

What? Seriously?

I said "No just sell him to the neighbor."

Someone has a lot to learn about the Golden Rule!

Back on a buck hunt again!

I have this really pretty spotted buck from Brenda that you could borrow~ you could hold him on your lap all the way home like Grace did!

That is sooo frustrating. I hate when people do stuff like that. It's too bad you couldn't have just taken them yesterday.

Brenda said...

Oh no! I was feeling frustrated with you ... until I read Terri's comment! Could you imagine holding a yearling buck on your lap on the trip back to your house? Of course when Grace held him on his 11 hour trip to their house he was only a few weeks old. Before I read her comment ... I was going to offer the loan of Latte, the daddy of Terri's buck.

I hope you find a really good one. :D
