I am at work and I got a phone call from a co-worker who told me that before xmas, he and his brother had been cleaning out his mom's basement and they came across 11 full oil cans up in the rafters. He told his brother that a guy at work he knows (ME!) liked cans and he wanted to take one to show me to see if i wanted them all, but up until today had forgotten that he even had the can in the back of his truck and because we missed each other at work over the holidays, it slipped his mind altogether. So............i ask him what is on the can. He pulls over, gets it from the back, and tells me it says "FREEDOM" on it like the other ones did. Anyway, he tells me that because he had forgotten to see me, that his brother had sold the other 10 for he thinks around $50 each, tired of waiting for him to get ahold of me. Anyway, he brings in the can today and at least I got one and with my less than stellar trackrecord of buying "FREEDOM" stuff, at least I am thrilled I got one and it is real!! lol. I hope someone on here got the other 10, but if so, dont tell me! lol. Oh, forgot the pic of the can!!
