    total kick in the dick, right?

    In the spring it cost me $1600 to get rid of a colony of honey bee's that had gotten in a gap in the soffit and made a 5 foot long x 18 inch honeycomb that required a giant hole to be cut in that wood siding of the house. Little bastards

    Had the siding redone on my house and garage earlier in the summer. Inside one of the walls of the garage, I apparently had a nest of yellow jackets. After the work was done, I kept seeing some of the yellow jackets trying to find their way back in, but it was all sealed up, lol.

    Where does one buy inexpensive patio furniture? Not trying to spend a grand on a table and 6 chairs

    Why not look used? I see people selling sets all the time for like half the cost they bought for.

    Only reason I say is my dad was just looking, too. I don't know if they got a set but he said everything up on like Facebook Marketplace and Letgo was cheap but looked good in photos. If you look local you can always go by to see it in person before paying. Only thing that sucks there is having to move it back to your house.

    That's the kicker. A set isn't fitting in my SUV.

    Yeah, like a bigger set to seat six is tough. You could always rent a small trailer, maybe? Do you have a hitch on the SUV? Doesn't even need to be like those mini uHauls. I've seen guys rent the exposed ones just to strap something down to. But I have no idea what the cost is there. Could get expensive.

    We got our set about 5+ years ago. Lowe’s or Home Depot, end of the year sale, about this time of the year. Some places may have free shipping.

    I think we spent around $400. Was half off.

    More than I wanted to spend but wife liked it and it was on sale. It’s a dining style, smaller table with 4 chairs. Stainless steel(?) that looks teak-style, which should last awhile. I didn’t want any glass or fabric that would need to be replaced annually. There are cushions, but they’re still in great shape.

    Based on what I’m looking up, I’m thinking it’s aluminum. Still looks new, light and easy to move. Can’t find the set, getting annoyed.

    Wait a month.. right when they start making room for Christmas shit go in and make an offer on a floor set.. 50 cents on the dollar at worst... They'd rather take a fraction to get it off the floor and not have to store it... Best time to buy an already assembled grill as well.
