I kept asking myself why I kept those hunks of odd trim pieces. What’s the deal with that chunk of OSB? The 6 foot warped 2X4 is not fit for a sawhorse leg. And why oh why would I keep a couple of old buckets that I can’t even mix grout in? And the Rocks? What was I thinking?

The clothes dryer died today and we are really tight on funds so…..

Now we’re good till the end of the month!

Heh heh…. Maybe I should submit the thing as artwork.

How about you all?

See, you DID need all those treasures!

Clothes dried in the sun are just better than machine dried ones (unless the birds roost on em)

Uh Oh. Time to find some more junk and make a scare-crow. If I had to buy all the supplies, that would have been $40.00.

Add a basketball hoop… LOL

Mark; – Alex, I’ll take “Lame Excuses” for $200, please.

Mark; – ...what is, “The clothes dryer died today.”

Alex; – Mark, you are today’s ‘PARODY’ Champion, congratulation!

Sorry for your loss.

Ok guys, you have given me an idea! I’m going to post it on Craigslist. All green clothes dryer. Works perfect. Doubles as full court youth basketball court. $500.

Len, I’m searching for my next lame excuse. I think the toaster is out. I think I can find some spring clamps and some sheet metal offcuts.

At first glance I didn’t notice the rope and clothes hanging. I was only looking at the wood.
So am I the only one who thought you built a cross, perhaps for an Easter pageant at your church?

Joe, I saw that myself. Those close lines are only good for vampire protection.

Now that you got me thinking about an actual cross, I’d put everything I had into one. Beyond that, I’d pray for his direction.
