I was happy to spot this piece of abandoned wood the other day while I was running. OK, so I spotted 2-3 pieces of wood….and talked my husband into pulling them out of a huge garbage pile and placing them in our stroller. Do you do this sort of thing? Does your husband roll his eyes, […]

Insulator Coat Rack

Have you ever seen an insulator? You can read more about one HERE. You can still see them on top of telephone poles in some places.
