Craigslist rocks!

We're selling some stuff before we move (32' CRT TV, Grill, patio furniture, coffee table, tire cover for my truck, etc.) and we put some of the ads up around midnight last night. Before I got up this morning, we had a taker for the patio furniture, and before I got into work, we had the TV and the grill sold. We're a little cheap on the TV ($75), but Id rather sell it cheap than throw it out, and $50 per on the grill and patio stuff (a small table and 2 chairs), and we've done almost no work at all LOL.

Now if only someone would take my last little cat (he's free!)

for some reason I'm having a hard time selling my formula/weinmann dp18 front wheel on craigslist.
I mean, sure, I'm selling it for the going rate of $80, but it's been destressed and trued, which is at least worth $25 right there.

man these jerk holes don't understand that you can't use factory built wheels right out of the box. and had I sold it for $60 without doing the extra work, you would have to pay $25 to have it trued in the very near future and another $25 after that if it goes out of true again.

Talk to Hillary about the kitty. He may be interested. I would take the cat; however they make me sneeze.

Why won't you take him with you? Why would you abandon a member of your family?

We would but the new apartment doesnt allow. I've re-homed my two older cats, and I've been shocked that the youngest cutest most playful one who is fully housebroken, fixed, and cuddly has been the hardest to find a place for.

Why would you get an apartment that didn't allow your cats?

We're moving about 70 days before our wedding. Apartments in Boston are a huge racket. They have brokers on almost every place that is worth living in, and the brokers charge fees, usually equivalent to a full months rent. So to get an apartment it's 1st month, last month, security, and fee. Cost would be on a standard 1 bedroom of $6000. Our apartment is on BU's campus, and they allow just a 1 month deposit. This close to the wedding we couldnt find anything that was even close to that price that allowed us to have pets.

I found homes, and GOOD homes, for 2 litters of kittens and am totally pleased with the outcome.

However, I do not plan on doing that again.
