The Monkey Wrench Gang, by Edward Abbey

"Edward Abbey is a writer. He writes about how to blowup dams. The name of one of the books he wrote was called Monkey wrench gang. He wears a black hat with a wrench on it. Ed has a gray elephant beard and he's a tall, skinny man. Ed does not like the highway so he throws beer bottles out the window. Ed does not like t.v. so the took his t.v. outside and took his gun and shot his t.v. and now it's a sculpture in his backyard."
So wrote some kid in his rather awesome project on Edward Abbey, the great curmudgeon.

Our friend Scott Landon's store in Vancouver is quite amazing. Strong mix of well picked Canadian 19th century and good industrial etc.

Whats New

Yesterday Paul was on the road and he came back with cheap chairs. The ones below come in large quantities and can be sold for a low quantity of money.

Theatre chairs were also something he found along his travels. These plush red beauties are solid and in awesome shape. $40 dollars a seat begs the question: Do you need some stadium seating?
