Bye-Bye Hot Tub and Husky

A very determined young father came to get our hot tub last weekend.  He brought along his wife and 3-month-old baby boy.  While his family kept warm in our house, Joe took down the deck railing and dragged the tub onto his trailer.  Then he put back the railing and drove away.  Many happy soaks to you, Joe!

Pat said a sad farewell to his last motorcycle, a vintage 1972 Husqvarna 360.  The day that I posted it for sale, this fascinating guy messaged me that he wanted it 100%, and he didn’t quibble over prices.  That was almost too good to believe.  When we spoke the next morning, I asked if his offer was for real.

It was.  As he strapped the bike into his moving van, Romulus von Stezelberger told us his story: how he left home at age 15, and eventually headed up a company that made custom, one-of-a-kind leather jackets for celebrities.

He was delightful and fascinating, and also friendly and fun.  After he left, I checked out his jackets on Facebook.  He had not exaggerated.

A beautiful creation…

and the designer himself, somewhat younger.

Thanks, Romulus!  It was great meeting you.
