I have a sweet neighbor who for some cracked and batty reason decided it would be a really good idea to trade the use of our leaf blower with a vintage set of pirates with castle. That's right folks. She offered to give the boys a castle set with actual medival soldiers in exchange for borrowing our leaf blower.
Trusting my rule to believe what people say, I took her up on the deal. Now some balanced person might say, "You don't need to do that. You're my neighbor, just take it." But I'm not balanced, you can take my word for it.
So, while my neighbor spent a crazed afternoon blowing leaves around her yard my boys adored and appreciated the castle. (It is reportedly 14 years old.)
So, if you're a cuckoo with some great toys... please keep me in mind -- I'm open to trade and barter.
