All I did this morning was answer the phone. An old gentlmen asked me if I would help him move some lumber today with my truck. I do work for him where he lives (A senior condo). I arrived 2 men got in and away we went. We loaded all the lumber that this older man had, he is moving into seniors complex and need it out of the shed he is selling. When we got back to where the 2 men lived they took out 1 board and said the rest is mine for helping ! I hate to sound like I am complaining, but I have no good place to store it. Another tarp in the back yard I guess. I just hope my neighbors are okay with a little pile of good lumber here and there !
This was 2 blocks away from where I live ! Oak, Maple, Walnut, Pine !

Well done. I will be glad to clear some of the junk that is on my rack to make room for the walnut. Seriously, I really would. I really must figure out some way to get in on deals like that. Thanks for making me depressed. As we say on another group that I participat in “Congrudgulations.” That is our way of saying, congratulations, but I really wish it had been me.
