No, Thank YOU Sir!April 19th, 2010 in member junk
I couldn't have been more excited when I saw a free croquet set advertised on Craigslist. However, I had no idea what it was like and the ad said it was missing pieces. Still, I was willing to gamble on a carride to where it said it was sitting on their curb. I was downright giddy when I rounded the corner and saw it. I tried to act casual as I got out because the homeowner was working in the yard. I yelled "Thank you!". Then he started to explain that pieces were missing and basically was apologizing for it. "Oh, no sir" I thought "THANK YOU!". Even if they can't imagine it themselves, I so appreciate people who recognize that others may find value in what they have and are willing to pass it along.
So I took that awesome partial croquet set and made this adorable table -- something I've always wanted to try. I'm very happy with the outcome. And I still have a mallet, 5 croquet balls, and the adorable little cart (soon to be a planter of some sort). Happy green week!
