I was out running some errands, looking for fabric to cover the bench I'm making from a pair of Eastlake side chairs I bought a couple of years ago for $10 each with every intention of re-caning the seats (but that's a story for a future post) when I decided to stop at Harbor Freight to pick up a couple of tape measures. Of course, I had to browse through the store and I found a trio of gnomes on clearance for just $5.97, plus a drip watering kit with the in-line drippers I prefer, also on clearance at just $5.99. Here's a picture of the gnomes in their new home.
As luck would have it, while I was in the store I got a weather alert on my phone warning of an impending dust storm, which hit just as I was getting back into my car. Visibility was down to 1/4" mile and yet there were still idiots driving without their headlights on; no wonder insurance is so expensive around here. Here's hoping we at least get some rain out of this; a quick check of the radar shows it's very possible.
