so what do you do when someone gives you a single bed mattress? yep you use your free scrap 2X4's to make a frame. since we are tight on space we made it over the one couch. using our space to the fulliest has become a challenge I like accepting.

also we started covering our porch ceiling guessed it freebie plywood

although it was hot last weekend, it didn't seem that bad when it's a labor of love

Re: freebies

You have to love freebies. In the past year. I have managed a 12 x 20 walk in cooler box with rubber roof. 20 sheets of 1/2 plywood and 18 sheets of 3/4 plywood...not to mention endless # of 2x4's and 20 4x4x12 salt to find the time to do something will all the stored goods.

Harvesting imature game removes future trophies. Patience is rewarded.

Re: freebies

A friend said his camp was decorated in "early Salvaton Army", what every anyone was throwing away went to his camp LOL

For those who fought for it, Life has a flavor the protected will never know.
