"when free isn't cheap enough"
SO, Thursday is this mega-hectic day. I have my own work to finish and Nook to walk downtown and Yogi's family needs last minute care for him. (I am a professional potter AND dog walker)
I can do it all! But I am flippin' beat. I am nearly done with walking Nook and then back to Yogi (and my own dog!) thinking "when I get home I just want to sit in the shade out back and rest a bit...which kitchen chair shall I take out?". And there it is. On the corner, for free, an awesome patio chair.
