    He knows me so well. He is a contractor--this afternoon he calls and asks me how much chainlink fencing I need/want?? Well, it seems there is a house that was purchased by a development company and they wanted the house torn down! Seems vandals had torn out the lights, heating, windows etc. but had left 1000+ ft of chain link fence.. some is 5', some 8' and some 12'. Had seven gates and two 6ft double sliding gates... I told him to bring all the fencing that he wanted to bring, I would appreciate it ... So, tonight at about dark here he comes in his big truck with all the fence, gates, lots of posts and some hardware. He said that the post were set in three ft. deep with cement--I told him not to worry about other posts! We have been using wooden treated 4x4's and 6x6's for the chicken run and we wouldn't need the metal ones, since they were a big pain to remove. HOOT HOOT, looks like more chicken runs!!! I just love him...Dixie

    What's your best find/deal lately?

    My best thing ever was three huge 30g fish/ reptile tanks (36lx18dx12h) when i used to breed african rats. It meant three new colonies that each made 60 babies a month. Each rat sold for 2-3$. good times. I could use 25 ft of 48 inch high fencing right now. And maybe a small gate.

    Sounds like you have a great SIL.

    I have the best MIL on the planet.

    She is so perfect she is almost Diety. Seriously.

    I made the huge mistake once of asking DW why she couldn't be more like her mother.

    Nice job getting the chainlink fencing! That's a great deal (freeee!).

    Best deal... hrm. I've been wanting a ceiling fan for my bedroom for a while now. I just found one on clearance at Lowe's for $25, down from $130.
