Care package from a good mate down under!
« on: March 28, 2014, 02:16:35 PM »
Got home from a business trip late last night - checking the mail this morning I found this:



Seems Jocool sent me a care package. 

But before we reveal the contents, first let me introduce "Donna", so named after a character on the series "Suits" (she is on my bucket list....)

Donna is a recent M/T rescue and my first Weber Redhead.  I have been doing a little customization, with a little more planned.  So far, we have Zav handles in light Ash, color keyed metal wheels, and new bale rollers:



Some of the items in the care package are specifically for Donna.  A perfect complement for a beautiful redhead!:





I have got to tell you that owning a vintage Weber Westerner is a pretty cool thing  However, with the other item(s) in the care package it just got even better!





Unbelievable!  I made a simple comment in a post that Jackaroos and Redheads would be great to have, and Jocool made it happen without asking a thing in return.  He even sent me 2 pairs of gloves - one pair to actually use (they fit perfect by the way), and one pair that will stay pristine and will always be kept with the Wood Dale Westerner to give it a little Aussie Class!

Jocool - thank you, thank you, thank you my brother!  An awesome gesture on your part - I really appreciate it.

What a great story. Kudos to Jocool! Except now the "Boogey Man" knows where you live and may pay you a visit in the future. ;) Keep up the good work, WKC!

Winz, I'm glad you like them! I'm more than happy to help out.

now the "Boogey Man" knows where you live and may pay you a visit in the future. ;)

Out the back of beyond? Damn...I'd be worried about the REAL Boogey Man getting me!  ;D
