OUTCUE=RUNS=0:11 WOLFSIE: WE ARE BACK WITH ERNIE TAYLOR AND ERNIE, YOU HAVE BEEN SHOWING US AROUND YOUR INCREDIBLE COLLECTION THAT GOES BACK PROBABLY, SOME OF THIS STUFF OVER A 100 YEARS, RIGHT? ERNIE: YES, IT DOES. WOLFSIE: AND THIS IS LIKE ‘AMERICAN PICKERS’ I CAME IN HERE, IF I HAVE ANY MONEY I WOULD PROBABLY BE OFFERING HIM STUFF. SO SHOW ME A COUPLE OF OTHER THINGS? ERNIE: WELL, DICK THIS IS A MASSEY HEIR CEMETERY MORGUE, IT WAS MADE FOR ONE HORSE IT WAS MADE SHORT SO IT COULD MOVE BETWEEN THE STONES. WOLFSIE: AH… ERNIE: THE YELLOW THING HERE IS A PUMPKIN SEEDER. YOU CAN PLANT PUMPKINS. AND THE LITTLE THING OVER HERE IS A CORN GRILL, A ONE CORN PLANTER TO PLANT CORN BACK IN THOSE DAYS. UP HERE IS THE OLD TIME HAY RAKE. THIS LEVER COMES OVER AND THE HORSES PULL IT WHEN IT FILLED UP ON ONE SIDE YOU JERK THE HANDLE IT’D FLOP OVER, DUMP THAT HAY, THEN YOU WOULD RAKE IT AGAIN… AN OLD TIME WAY OF DOING THINGS. WOLFSIE: PEOPLE HAVE COME BY HERE, THEY SEE YOUR DISPLAY OUT THERE ON STATE ROAD 32, RIGHT? ERNIE: YEAH. WOLFSIE: AND THEY OFFER TO BUY STUFF, BUT YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED. ARE YA? ERNIE: NO, I’M NOT. I’M NOT INTERESTED. IN FACT, I’M BUYING I’M NOT SELLING. WOLFSIE: (LAUGHS) YOU’RE STILL BUYING? ERNIE: I’M STILL BUYING, YEAH. WOLFSIE: OKAY, SHOW ME ONE MORE COOL THING… ERNIE: WELL, BACK HERE IN THE CORNER I’VE GOT A HAND- CRANK CEMENT MIXER. IT WAS PROBABLY FOR PLASTER INSTEAD OF CEMENT, BUT YOU CAN SEE IT’S BEEN USED. BUT THE OLD TIMERS DIDN’T HAVE ROLL BOARDS AND STUFF, THEY HAD TO PUT UP THEIR LEGS AND USE THE PLASTERS. SO I’M SURE THAT WAS A PLASTER MAKER. WOLFSIE: WHAT’S THE BIG SLED? ERNIE: THE BIG BOB SLED UP HERE, THAT’S SET UP SO YOU PULL IT DOWN IN THE WOODS TO GET YOUR FIRE WOOD AND STUFF FOR THE WINTER. WOLFSIE: HOW OLD WOULD YOU SAY THAT IS, ERNIE? ERNIE: I’D SAY IT’S PROBABLY A 100 YEARS OLD. WOLFSIE: IS THAT RIGHT? ERNIE: YES. WOLFSIE: AND AT SOME POINT YOU BOUGHT THAT FROM SOMEBODY? ERNIE: YES, YES. I SHOULD’VE BEEN WRITING THINGS DOWN BUT I DON’T REMEMBER WHERE I GOT A LOT OF THINGS. WOLFSIE: (LAUGHS) ERNIE: I HAVE THIS OLD TRACTOR HERE IT’S A 1926 1020 MCCORMICK-DEERING AND I RUN IT IN HERE ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO BUT IT’S SO OLD I HAVEN’T GOT IT OUT SINCE. BUT I’M SURE WITH A LITTLE TENDER, LOVE, AND CARE IT CAN BE FIRED RIGHT UP. WOLFSIE: OKAY, I’M GONNA ASK YOU ONE MORE THING AND SEE HOW MUCH YOU REMEMBER. WHAT IS THIS? ERNIE: THAT IS AN OLD TIME COME-ALONG NOW WHAT YOU DO IS KNOCK THAT OVER A TREE LIMB OR A POST OR SOMETHING AND YOU COULD LIFT SOMETHING UP. NOW IN THE OLD DAYS THEY DIDN’T HAVE THE WEIGHT TO LIFT IT. BUT WE DO NOW, SO THAT WOULD WORK FOR A LOT OF THINGS. WOLFSIE: IF YOU GUYS AT AMERICAN PICKERS ARE WATCHING THIS SHOW, THIS IS THE GUY TO HAVE. OKAY? WE’LL YOU’RE NOT SELLING ANYTHING, SO THEY MAY NOT BE INTERESTED. ERNIE: NO… WOLFSIE: ERNIE TAYLOR HERE IN ZIONSVILLE, ON STATE ROAD 32 COME BY AND TAKE A LOOK AT HIS LAWN DISPLAY IT’S UNBELIEVABLE. ERNIE GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN, MY FRIEND. ERNIE: THANK YOU, SIR.
