    Too bad Ken F. missed this

    I was looking through the Houston Craigs list today and found this. The price is good, not great, and I thought about Ken Fitzgerald, whose son Mike just drove his pickup to Lewiston. [URL=""]

    Drawer slides

    Got my weekly special e-mail from Woodpeckers this morning and noticed a bulk deal on full extension, 100 lb. drawer slides. You have to buy a box (10) but the prices are the best I've seen lately. 18" are about $64. and 24" are about $80,with the others priced in between. There is a coupon...
