Who will give me a bid?

It was a cold, windy day.  I could never understand what the auctioneer was saying.  I guess it worked out ok.  Sad to see the land leave the family after 160 or so years, but it was the best thing to do.

Is this still in Missouri? Looked like a neat old house and property.

Steve I tried to leave a message for Bruce but it was kind of cryptic,I to have a family heirloom in the form of a sailing dory and am now all crippled up. On my blog one can take a look at it(1939 sloop rigged) I've been combing blogs for someone that has love of sailing and cruising.It has to go as I do.A sailor or river runner could get it for s song.Literally--Take a look,located in Carlsbad---Jehope

Hi Jehope, I checked out your dory. She really is a nice looking boat with a ton of character. Unfortunately, I am not in the market for a boat but thanks so much for thinking of me.
