I went by one of my favorite dumpsters yesterday and dug out two perfectly
good patio umbrellas(along with some other treasures). I went back today
and found the poles. I built the base using a 5 gal bucket filled with
concrete. Now I can work with my equipment out in the blazing sun and with
a little drizzle(like now with Dennis passing through.)
If we are getting into off topic gloats...
I bought a skydiving rig at a garage sale for $18. I thought my kids would
enjoy seeing how it works.
My wife suggested putting on eBay instead. I got $170 for it. And... the
buyer is delighted with the bargain he got.
How's that for recycling!
As told to me by an old time electrical contractor customer of mine.
A push in the hand is worth two in the bush,
except if in yonder bush,
A fair maiden should stand.
Then a push in the bush,
is worth two in the hand.
