Mule Barn News
I know you don't need a mule
today, but when the sun comes
out you will want to plow. Sure, i
I have a barn full of good mules; ;
nobody wants one now, but it
won't be long now. I can fill your |
orders for mules plus corn to feed '
them; also harness for each mule,!
Some plow tools and wagons.
Hay sells itself this kind of
weather. i have some good blood-
ed, pigs ready to wean; two power
wood saws practically new.
Sorry you did not get to see
my little sister from Arkansas:',
She is still cute.
See you Sat'd'y.
