Two of our regulars have submitted entries for today.
Some of our younger members may not get the significance of the pictures from Mel Genge. Ask an old fart who the heck was Beaver Lumber.

Rick has created another dyed wonder out of Box Elder.


The other day Steve Penn dropped over to my house and gave me an original Beaver Lumber ball cap he found in a box of goodies.

(editorial comment—-It was after all Mel’s 80th. birthday).

Some time later I was going through my lumber stock and found this piece with a 1984 Beaver Lumber sticker. I guess it pays to keep some things around for a few years.
