Every weekday morning, my daughter attends early Church education classes for youth.Â We leave the house about 6:30, drop her off around 6:40, then I have about a 10 minute window before I have to be home for the 2nd shift (other children)
Â One morning it “dawned” on me (get it???) to check the back of a nearby furniture store for throw outs, hey, there might be something good back there. I had been picking up Wood Pallets from a Hardwood store for a while now, so time to expand my horizons.Â Â
Imagine my delight when I found this!!!Â
My friend Emma gave me the suggestion to make a giant clock out of it.Â That is definitely on the list, even have the giant clock hands, just have to wait for the holidays to calm down…..
This morning, I knew it was trash day for local businesses, so I thought I better take a quick cruise.Â Sometimes the businesses around the furniture store have goodÂ stuffÂ “dumped” next to their dumpsters.Â I saw a few things that caught my eye, but it was dark still, so I pulled my car in closer, got out for a better look, and heard a lot of noise…….Either coming from inside the dumpster, or behind it.Â Luckily, good sense prevailed and I got back in my car, just as a friendly looking face emerged from the dumpster!Â D’oh!!!Â A friendly wave to Dumpster Man and I was on my way.Â Â
Of course, I drove the whole way home thinking Dumpster man had something good and if I were just a little more bold, I should have dove in and fought him for it.Â Â
