All it needs is a couple of covers, a title page, table of contents, and an index.

My personal favorite line: "The mildew stains appear to be real and not painted in green".

I know we've been trying to paint on that mildew look with terrible results

Excuse me but I’m not very interested in buying it! I doubt that a lawyer would have that much to say!

Did you notice that it’s a “GIRL?”

My favorite line: "I’ll also require taking at least two photos of the Buyer holding a local current newspaper plus Title in front of the Trailer for consumation records that it changed hands."

Paranoia is never pretty. Little wonder everyone took her explicit advice to "DO NOT BID".

With all of those precautions, I don't remember reading anything about doing the transaction in the presence of a notary public!

Hmm. Raised my curiosity.... pasted it into Word, ran a word coundt, and noticed also, a line count..... 212 lines, 3,222 words. So the rate would have been..... um...... licking finger and testing the wind.... $161.10?

Back when I did the paper thing, my salary was $150/wk. A long time ago, and far, far away...

And how many times did she say "being sold AS IS" ? I don't know much about used Globetrotter prices, but isn't that $3,000 starting bid a bit much considering those slight dents that aren't very noticable? I mean the BIG one on the port side in the photo and the BIG one on the top!
