Subject: Fwd: an interesting barn story

A New York man retired. He wanted to use his retirement money wisely, so it
would last, and decided to buy a home and a few acres in Portugal.

The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15yrs.; the owner and wife both had
died, and there were no heirs.

The house was sold to pay taxes.

There had been several lookers, but the large barn had steel doors, and they
had been welded shut. Nobody wanted to go to the extra expense to see what
was in the barn, and it wasn't complimentary to the property anyway......so,
nobody made an offer on the place.

The NY guy bought it at just over half of the property's worth, moved in,
and set about to tear in to the barn.......curiosity was killing him.

So, he and his wife bought a generator, and a couple of grinders.......and
cut thru the welds.

What was in the barn...........http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif....?

Go to:


... and maybe you'll be wishing it was you who bought the place.
