Porches are made for sitting and also putting things like washing machines (when your house is small, consider the porch an annex), handy woodpiles, snow shovels or in my case a printer-scanner that has been in disuse for about 2 years. It only worked a little, every now and then and never if you really needed it to.
Since Santa delivered its replacement (which works 100% of the time, thank you!), it is sitting on my porch* to offer those who stop by. ‘Uh, hey. You need a printer scanner that might work some of the time?’
I had no takers from the party, so I’m thinking it may go to Summerland.
* it never occurred to me that this may look funny as people are coming into my house because I grew up in the Ozarks. It was Brother who asked, ‘is that a printer on your woodpile?’
Naturally, my response was, ‘yeah! You want it?’
