FFJ posting here reminded me I have something to get rid of too!

We are going to be replacing our garage door as soon as the one we ordered gets here.

The door is an older wooden one, 16 feet wide and 7 feet high, with one row of windows. It is nothing special, the panels sag slightly and could use some paint, but it is functional and the price is right.

It comes with an Overhead Door Co. opener as well, which has two (or maybe three) remotes and works well.

If someone wants it, I be careful taking it apart. Otherwise, maybe I'll buy FFJ's car and drive it through it before hiram goes off-roading with it. :D

I'm hoping our new door will be here in about a week.

I finally got the door changed, the old door is destroyed, but I still have the opener. Someone must know someone that would like an opener?????? I hate to toss it out...

Put it in the Uncle Henrys for $25 . . . you would be surprised what people will buy . . . I mean I ended up selling my Celica through there recently. ;) :D

Do you have a Craigslist up there.

I got rid of a lot of stuff using it down here.

Yeah, I just hate to have strangers coming here to get anything. We need to have a yard sale next spring and I could save it for that, but I'd rather give it away than look at it for 3 months or trash it.

I put stuff out at the end of the driveway and posted

FREE first come first serve!

If it is not there you were too late!

Most was gone in less than 8 hours.

Right now it'll get hit by the plow truck in less than 1!

Maybe up there in Maine but not at this house.

Yet!

Just leave it out front with a sign stating a price. Someone will steal it quicker than you can give it away.
