THE AUCTION A few years ago, I booked an auction sale, heavy equipment , along with some other things at the fairgrounds at Castlewood, Virginia. When it came time to start the sale, I saw a well dressed gentleman walking up through the crowd. I explained to everybody the terms of the sale and that everything pur- chased there that day would be paid for by cash or a certified check at the end of the sale. So, :the sale was on its way. The first thing was sold was an Olds- mobile car. Then we moved to the heavy equipment. This old gentleman bought a big rubber tired backhoe with a two yard bucket. He bought a small B4 dozer. He bought a lowboy and a few small items. Well, when the sale was finished, I told everybody to go on in the office and the girl, my secretary, would take care of them. Well, directly, she informed me that one person hadn't came in. So, .I got to looking and I seen the old man walking down the road. And I Kevin Spencer Song Service at House of the Lord Church A Special Song Service will be held at the House of the Lord Church in Castlewood on Saturday, July 20 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Featured will be Kevin Spencer, from Ohio. For more information phone 762-5845. Pastor Teddy G. Phillips welcomes everyone to attend. VBS at Stallard Vacation Bible School will be held at Stallard Memorial Church in St. Paul on July 22-26 from 6-8 pm each night. The theme for the event is "The overtook the old guy and I said, "Sir, they're needing you up there in the office to pay for the equipment that you bought here today." And he said, "What equipment?" I said, "What: you bid in up there at the auction sale." He said, "Man, I didn't even have money this morning for breakfast. I couldn't even buy myself a cup of coffee.": 1 said, "Well, why did you bid in all of this equipment?" Well, he said, "I don't know why I done that." And then I realized that I was dealing with a mental case. So, what else could I do t except, that day 1 lost about $9,000. And besides that,: :I. learned that you can't judge a book by looking at the cover. And, you certainly can't look a rooster in the face and tell how fat he is. And, last but not least, you can't look at the clothes a man wears and the automobile that he drives and tell how much he's worth. Sometimes, it might just indicate how much he's in debt.
