I love to go to police auctions and public auctions. I really don’t ever buy much of anything but I like to go and see all the things that they are trying to sell. And also see how cheap they are! Once in a while, I will make a purchase, but usually I do not indulge. Once I purchased an old police cruiser. It was in good shape and it had an immense V8 engine. And it only cost me two hundred bucks, so how could I pass it up? I made another impulse buy another time, and I ended up buying a lake house for a tiny fraction of the property value! The place had no air conditioning or indoor plumbing, but for the price I paid who cares, right? After closing, buying the place as is and sight unseen, I finally made my way out there to take a look. And then it really hit me just how terrible the Heating, Ventilation & A/C situation was. There was no air conditioner system at all, and the old coal and oil furnace was this very immense wrought iron monstrosity that was designed in the dark ages! And even worse than that, the heating ductwork that was installed was all crammed full of junk like branches and leaves and dirt. Plus, it also appeared as if the local squirrels had found their way into the ductwork. They’d started using the ductwork as family housing. That meant before I could get an air conditioner in there, first I’d have to clear out the ducts! But before I cleared out the ductwork, I would have to chase out or exterminate an entire colony of squirrels. That wouldn’t be easy at all.
