I posted an old 9n tractor for sale on craigslist earlier this year. It didn't take long before I got a phone call from a man wanting to see it. I told him to come on out. An elderly gentleman arrived about 30 minutes later and I met him outside. He talked about different things on the tractor, asked a bunch of questions, and eventually we found out that we knew a lot of the same people. Pretty soon he told me that he didn't need a tractor nor had the money. He just likes tractors. His wife had passed away a couple of months earlier and he was lonely and just wanted to come look at the tractor and hopefully engage in some conversation. I told him that supper would be ready soon and he should join us. He did. We had a great conversation that night and still keep in touch with each other today. The best non sale I ever had.
