Have you ever been caught in that time warp...where it's long past the time, things should have been taken care of?

I started out, by taking a cover apart.
It was pretty darn easy and you can tell why!

My receipt said that I saved $190.13.
Hummmm...I can live with that!
Back to the garden center...
I think summer is here!
