Hey, I know them!
The world is very small, indeed. We were shopping
at Handsman for some wood to frame up the benches. I came across a
familiar name in the lumber department…Weyerhaeuser. Who? Weyerhaeuser. You
know…the company Erika used to work for. The lumber is labeled “SPF” which
stands for “Spruce, Pine, Fir”. To the untrained eye, each piece of wood looks
the same. The trick is to smell the wood. Each species of wood has a unique
scent. Well anyway, it’s kinda cool knowing that the benches on the deck are
made of wood from Erika’s old stomping grounds. Greg (Erika’s former boss), if
you are reading this, any comment? George
