Free wood!

This afternoon I absolutely HAD to go to Walgreens for something for back pain. It was SO bad. On the way out I saw this at the entrance of our neighborhood.

so I sent a quick message to Paul asking him if he wanted me to ask for the wood when I came back through. He said yes. Amazingly, by the time I got back into the neighborhood, they had that long piece down to about a 4-foot-high stump and were carting the pieces to a large truck that would haul them off. Looonnnnng red light. Then I shot around and hollered, "Hey. My husband wants to know if he can have that wood!" These very happy men said, "Where is he?" and I said, "Doesn't matter. I have the truck." So they delightedly loaded almost all of it into my pickup, telling me this was SO much easier than lifting it (3 or 4 feet higher) into the other truck. So now my truck is in the driveway with all this luscious wood (Mesquite? Oak. Not positive.) for Paul to turn into something beautiful.
