    Last Weekend, at a garage sale, I saw two Stihl tools. One was a power blower. The other was the KM 55R combi power head with edger and weedeater attachments. I asked if they worked. She said yes. I asked how much. She said "$25 each." Yes, that is 'twenty five dollars' each.
    They both fired up on the first pull and ran nice and smoothly. Obviously the lady didn't really know what she had. I felt bad paying only $50 for everything. So, I told her I'd give her $100 if she would throw in the package of string trimmer refill. She looked at me as if I had lost my mind but agreed.

    Score! I have no use for the string trimmer and edger attachments but hope to sell them on eBay and pick up a chain saw/ pole pruner attachment.

    Pretty good deal, eh? (We don't really say "eh" in Texas.)

    C, eh

    N, eh

    D, eh!

    Yeah - I assume you mean North of the IL border? Go oop nort in WI and you find 'eh in pretty high use in the north west corner. "Gonna put the boot in the water and do a little fishin', eh?" "Yeah der, dats da plan".
