I have a small SUV that I mostly drive around with the back seats down. And why not? I don't remember anyone actually riding in them. Besides, if I need to drag the dogs someplace, it's ready to go. This way, the seats stay in great shape. But there's a problem, which hit me in … Continue reading Put it in the Box

Because it's one of 3-4 huge trees that shade my house lowering my electric bill in the summer like no one's business. But it's rotted.
