mini GLOAT?

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 by!

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...)

Sounds like jewelry box time! Ask her about attributes desired.

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.

Hola Juan!
She asked me to check her garage for anything else I want before she tosses it - as Arnold said - " I'll be back!"
