The Power of Craig's List... and Always a Hostess

Craig's List admittedly gives me the heebee-jeebies. Some of the things people are advertising as wanting or selling... creepy. And, I still can't get my head around the fact that people will "give" away their family pet! Yes, my perspective comes from years of volunteering with Dog Rescue groups. 

However, if you narrow your sights, Craig's List can serve a very useful purpose.  Case in point: we excavated roughly 500 square feet of sod this past weekend. Dear Mr. Southern was trying to strategize on disposing of said sod. I figured- we have sod that needs to go away, people must need sod or landscaping stores wouldn't have it for sale. We just need to work out a trade- Craig's List! He was dubious, but I posted "free sod" last night and by morning, we had over eight responses.

So right now, I have a young man rolling up the sod and loading it into his pickup truck. While it is not hot out, and he's getting free sod, I still feel badly and really want to go serve him some iced tea or lemonade- like that pictured above (I'm sure you were wondering what relevance the pitcher had to CL). What a lovely little tray.

I fear he would think I was one of the crazies on Craig's List though...
