I am creatively challenged this week so I thought I'd tell you a story.
So this weekend I attended my brother-in-laws Air force retirement party. It was a great party with so much wonderful food. He is a great guy and all his buddies came out to celebrate.
The home it was at is the perfect party location complete with barn and fire pit. It didn't rain but it was COLD. Perfect night for a bonfire. Just so happens there was a HUGE burn pile in the pasture that they planned to light when it got dark. Fun right. It was probably 20 ft wide and 15 ft tall. Lots of stumps and branches and old cedar fencing. 220 FEET OF OLD WEATHERED CEDAR FENCING they kept saying was underneath it all.
Cedar fencing? So friends you know what I was screaming in my head right? "Do you know what I could make with 220 feet of perfectly weathered cedar fencing!?!?"
I had to watch it burn for hours, sober by the way, because I was driving. I was in physical pain I tell you.
I don't know why I feel the need to share this but I do. Oh wait I know why, it's because all of you who love to reuse, repurpose, and just plain love old weathered wood would have thought the same thing. My people.
Seriously, 220 ft of old cedar fencing burns real good though ;)
