Every so often, life throws you a winning lottery ticket.
There was a knock on our door yesterday afternoon. A neighbour came by to inquire what kind of wood I collected.
How did he know?
Could it be the massive junk pile in front of the house that never seems to go away?
“Oh, just whatever. I take whatever I can get, as long as it’s solid wood.”
I didn’t think anything of it… until he told me to come get his fence.
You can bet I had my shoes on faster than my feet themselves.
First I envisioned lattice sections… so I really didn’t know what to expect.
These were nail free, solid wood planks with nice square edges. No tongue and groove funny business. Very lightweight from being weathered, but that’s ok!
And most planks were barn wood grey.
I ran home and (bribed) hauled my son along, promising him (not very) great sums of money to help knock down and load up!
“ALL those?!” (they go around the corner to the right too, and then up to the road)
“Yes! And then I’ll take you out to eat!”
More bribery never hurts.
Would you just catch that golden sunset along that fence? It was the most perfect evening for this dream come true event!
“Can I get a BIG slushie too?”
I was just that slushie happy.
Once we got to the slushie store, my son tried to get me to buy a $1 lottery ticket.
I can’t figure out why he didn’t agree… 🙂
What would you make with this million dollar XL slushie worthy loot?!
