I'm in love!

With a dude named Craig! Who has a list! We had been mulling over replacing our patio furniture. More specifically replacing the fabric of the chairs. We've had this set for eleven years and it was a little worn.

Come to find out replacing the fabric would have run about $600. And we would have had to get a new umbrella too because naturally they discontinued the original fabric. Well hells bells, that's more than half way to a whole new set of furniture. But what to do with the old stuff? So I took this picture.

I opened an account with Craig's List. I posted this picture with a description at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon. At 5 o'clock a nice young man handed me a wad of cash and he and his roommate loaded up my furniture and drove away!

That Craig is something else. The Saint had better watch his back!

It is pretty impressive. Plus, he helps you with all kind of hook-ups if you're into that kind of thing.

Obviously you live in a larger city than I do. I listed a white wicker bedroom set for girls. It sat for months with nary a call. And it was listed for $50!

Stupid small-town back-woods ways.

We posted a riding lawn mower at 9 a.m. - it was out of our barn by 3 p.m. Full price. No haggling. Picked up.
