    Speaking of spending too much money...I am not thrilled with what DH decided to buy the kids for Christmas...a 2-seater go-kart!

    He couldn't resist. He says they usually go for $1,000 or so (dunno, never priced them) but some guy on his mail route was selling it for $200 because he really needed the money. So it's now sitting in our pole barn where the kids never go. We still need helmets.

    I asked him where he thinks they're going to ride the thing...he says around our yard. Yes, it's kind of a big yard, but still! Sheesh.

    We had go-garts as kids and I can tell you that they were great fun. What a wonderful Christmas Present!

    A Go-Cart sure beats parking the young uns in front of the TV set......fresh air,dirt,and a few broken bones never killed any kid...... :hobbyhors

    Awesome! And you're at least $600 better off than before... well, $200 poorer to be sure, but what a DEAL!

    That was a great deal! Hubby and I were looking at the ones Tractor Supply had recently and they were $1200 and up.

    No sympathy here. It's a great gift at a great price. Your DH did Good <grin>!
