Dumpster Diving and Crazy Projects

One day while we were still living in the apartments I was walking bear and saw two perfectly lovely chairs sitting by the dumpster. Well, to the untrained eye they aren't perfectly lovely chairs at all but I saw potential. So I dragged them back to the apartment. Poor dad sometimes thinks I have lost it and his first reaction was to drag that garbage back to the dumpster. But as you can see the true potential is slowly being revealed. Soon we'll have two perfectly lovely chairs to sit on by the front door. Success!!!

I'm glad to see you got or are getting those chairs finished up. By the next time I visit we'll have a nice place to reconointer. That is DAD phrasology 101 for anyone wondering where I came up with that word. Is it even in the dictionary?
