I was going thru town today and the local Y has a dumpster - right beside it was a used preform pond. Guess who came back home to get a truck and pick it up?
It will be a nice start for a lily pond. It's 4 ft. x6ft which is small but for free I couldn't pass it up! :o :D

LOL @ Teresa! Yes, I'll have to get a pix soon.
I thought DH would be thrilled that I got something for free, but all he said was "yeah just what you need" (What does he know) :rolleyes:

I'm not going to have a pump or filters, just a GF or 2 for skeeter patrol.

Well afterall, he has a backhoe! I really Need to learn how to operate it better without his assistance. One of these days he's gonna be sorry for trying to teach me! LOL

I know what you mean about Clay, it's not red but it is rock hard!

I can't think of anything nicer for a ponder than to have your oun backhoe!!!! Of course you need to own a large piece of property to dig lots of holes!!!! :D :D :D :D

Good find. I have a nice side table and few other items that were considered trash by others but gems to me.

LOL,,,

Half the things in my yard were found that way... My hubby being a avid collector of junk, and his parents being ex-landscapers... Everything was used/free... Well almost everything....

Good find... Congrats!!

Way to go, Bonnie!!! So......how many cars had to slam on the brakes when you swerved on over to the curb?

No Luke, I am not that Lucky!
Lynn, No luckily I kept my cool and didn't cause a wreck or pileup. :D

DH had just got dental surgery done, 5 teeth cut out and I was driving back home and I saw it out of the corner of my eye. As soon as we got back home, I gave him his med's, got in the truck and was outta here! LOL
No, I'm not that bad- our daughter was here with him if he needed anything! :o

I did have time to inspect it future today and it does have 2 little holes in it, no problem I have plenty of patching tape, etc.
Ain't bad for a dumpster find though. :rolleyes:
