with visions of cherry furniture dancing in my head

Well, we finally won the lottery today--the auction lottery. In the past few years, Brian has attended the occasional auction in an attempt to get some cheap lumber. The only thing he ever won the bid on was a small pile of oak.

Today there was an auction that had some cherry and maple--the two types of wood we need. So, Brian went and won the motherlode--two truckloads of wood (mostly cherry). His friend John was there (unfortunately for him) and had his truck. And being the nice guy that he is, he offered to help Brian haul the lumber home.

Of course, we don't have any place to store that much lumber, so into the shed it went. It's sitting in the spot reserved for the motorcycle! motorcycle! motorcycle!. Looks like Brian has a lot of work to do before next spring in order to reclaim his spot...
