    I want this so bad. SO BAD. My son is fixated on fire trucks, and he would love it. I would drive it everywhere. Need groceries? Let's hop in the fire truck! Dog show? Lets strap crates onto the back and go!

    Wooo! And it's $5k, which is a lot less than I imagined a vintage fire truck might cost.

    The SO wants a classic truck eventually. I was I was just telling him about this... But he's sleeping so he was being all grumpy and sarcastic. I'm like, no LOOK at it.... "oh, that's actually pretty cool!"

    I would totally drive that truck around too. HaHa.

    A ROOMBA!

    we used to have an old one... but the new ones are so much faster and crazier and smarter (less likely to get trapped/stuck/hit walls) and I know Merlin would chase it and we have stairs and we vacuum anyway but..

    TINY ROBOT!!

    Kids that clean up after themselves.

    I would love an RV. No more hotels or bumming on a couch when traveling.

    most of the things I want fall into the, "seriously? What in the world would you do with that?" category.

    1) another sheppy. Male shaded sable, please.

    2) one of those tiny pop-up campers that I can pull with my car

    Irrational, not really, but totally out of reach right now and not essential, totally:

    - RV with custom built in crates and a fancy fenced yard set up.

    - One of these for 6 dogs so I always have room for a foster or board and train dog: http://www.mysheds.com/gallery.asp?G=23&Image=745

    And totally irrational:

    - A natural swimming pool like this:

    A GSP. I want one so bad and they keep popping up in my rescue circles, but I am dogged out for at least 10+ years.

    A Labrador puppy.

    Totally irrational, do not need, stay away.

    I also have quite a few rational wants, but I can't afford to get them all right now. A new piano. A force blow dryer for the dogs. An e-collar for Abrams. A nice portable crate for Abrams. Two wee baby ferrets. Why does everything have to he so much $$$?! (And why is it just when we start to breathe and say, "Hm, maybe we can actually buy something now" something happens, like my freaking car getting stolen, that totally nixes all plans and make us pay $$$$ to get back to square one? Ugh.)

    You know, if you send Jack to me, that would free up a spot for your GSP. :p

    Oxfozz---I want that now too!!! haha

    And I totally want a little RV or camper. Do not need one. Would not use one that often, but totally want.

    And a puppy. Once I decided that I wanted a puppy, I wanted one yesterday. But it still feels totally irrational and crazy talk. Do I reeeeally want to screw up our perfectly happy, harmonious house?!

    He's on the way! He likes barking, barking, and barking. Also is a fan of barking some more.
