Pawn Shop Circuit: Remington
A few years back, I was having a tree service cut a live oak in the back yard. Huge limbs were overhanging the roof, and after the last ice storm, i did not want to take any chances. It was my intent to be rid of the thing and grow grass. My wife, teary eyed and distraught convinced me to transform the old oak into a poodle tree. Over the past few years, limbs have been creeping ever closer to my roof again.
Realizing my folly in letting my wife keep the tree, but being unwilling to hire out a tree service again, i started shopping for something to keep the monster trimmed back annually. Here, in Neil's corner stood the answer for $49. To top it off, it was a Remington pole saw.
It looked to be pretty decent for the money, and Neil offered me his standard "If ya don't like it, bring it back" guarantee. Good enough for me. Fifty bucks later, I was loading it in the back of the Cherokee. Now, if I only have time to fire it up and try it out this weekend..........
