Sid and Barney head out for a quick round of golf. Since they are short on time, they decide to play only 9 holes. Sid says to Barney, ''Let's say we make the time worth the while, at least for one of us, and spot $5 on the lowest score for the day.'' Barney agrees and they enjoy a great game.
After the 8th hole, Barney is ahead by 1 stroke, but cuts his ball into the rough on the 9th. ''Help me find my ball; you look over there,'' he says to Sid. After 5 minutes, neither has had any luck, and since a lost ball carries a four-point penalty, Barney pulls a ball from his pocket and tosses it to the ground. ''I've found my ball!'' he announces triumphantly.
Sid looks at him forlornly, ''After all the years we've been friends, you'd cheat me on golf for a measly five bucks?'' ''What do you mean cheat? I found my ball sitting right here!''
''And a liar, too!'' Sid says with amazement. ''I'll have you know I've been standing on your ball for the last five minutes!''
I take old Starbucks Drink Cups and turn them into Lamps
The warm panels are made from melting down old Starbucks drink cups, but it looks and feels like mica or some organic material. The wood in the lampshade and base is pulled from our 100 year old house in Astoria Oregon during a remodel, and it all comes together for a beautiful, classic look.

the world... nutty.
