One day over a few beers, My friend Jefferey Brown (from Kansas), told me, that every idea needs a plan to make it a reality. “It was time” he said, ” to get some blueprints on how to build a trailer”.
For years Jeffrey has been buying stuff at the hardware store and either paying extra for delivery, or folding down the back seat and loading that up with stuff from the hardware store, the nursery, or sometimes picking up pieces of furniture.
“You would think”, he said, ” I would’ve woken up years ago. I don’t need anything big, just a yard trailer, so Monica (his wife), can hook it up if she needs to”
He continued “When I wanna go pick something up, she had the SUV. When she wanted to go pick plants or something else up from the nursery, I had it out on a job”
“Plus, when you have a pair of large dogs that want to go where you go it all gets to be a pain”. He complained.
“At least this way,” JB said, ” It will be just a matter of putting a tow ball on Monica’s little car and we stop the juggling”.
“Happy wife happy life” I said.
