Who needs duct tape…

There is nothing like enjoying a midnight snack compliments of the Quaker Oats people while I admire some of the ingenuity of Laredoans. I was a former coupon clipper but not of the extreme kind that LaSanbe blogged about.

Nowadays, I am a free sample requester. My free sample was a tasty 160 calories with 3 grams of fiber, a clear distraction while I trashed old photos in my files. Check out this air conditioner assistance at a nearby restaurant – and yes, I still ate there :).

Or this swinging mailbox that cleverly hangs midair for the owners to pull it in over the fence when they have mail. No need to unlock the heavy chain around the gate when you have this nifty little contraption.

    Reminds me of “The Tonight Show” segment called “White Trash Repairs” http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/photos/white-trash-repairs-may-18-2011/7787#item=175484
    Too funny!

    You should collect more of these pictures and hold an exhibit. You can title it…..”Yonke” Art. 😀

    I don’t know if everybody calls such contraptions by this term, but my tíos referred to such improvisations as “El patente mexicano.”
