Does this qualify for a mini gloat?
I live in Southern California where the retail cost of wood is high. My
newxt door neighbor called me over and asked if I could tell what kind of
wood she had in her garage, which she was in the process of cleaning out. I
took a look and told her it was walnut.
She asked me if I wanted it before she threw it away so I said YES -
Got myself 18 pieces of 1x6x8' and 3 pcs 1x12x6' of good looking walnut.
Here in So Cal that's a few hundred bucks worth of walnut.
Of course, I may be wrong, I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken.
I would say that is a great mini gloat!!
Here in Southern Oregon, the cost of wood has gone sky high as well. Best
deal lately? renovation discards at our local elementary school. The
contractor began to question his reason for having a scrap truck standing
Mini gloat? That's no mini gloat. YOU SUCK!!!!!!!!!
I'm still new to the whole bf thing, but if I figured that up right, that's
about 90 bf. Right? So at local prices that's $450 worth of wood... You
got that FREE?????
Yumpin' yimminy, if that isn't a gloat then you're spoiled rotten. :)
(Or else I'm too stupid to do the math. Is that 90 bf? 6*8*18 + 6*12*3 /
12 I gotta learn this stuff, so I may as well have someone point out how
stupid I am now so I can get it over with...)

LOL! Reading my mind, Bob? I will definately make her something nice. Still
can't believe it - she asked me to look around in her garage and if I found
anything else I wanted - take it - was too shocked to do it over the weekend
but told her I'd take a look. AND she has a huge avocado tree filled with
large ripe avocados - very expensive in the markets.
This was my lucky weekend.
