Hatracks

A couple of replies to my bonus post asked about $200 hat racks. Since Flar and I are thinking of a furniture-quality wooden hat-rack that is heavy enough to be stable, we're hopeful that we could find something in that range.

I did a Froogle search for "hatrack" the top three non-OSC-Novel results were:

Maple faux bamboo retangular wall hatrack for $750-850.

Victorian bamboo and rush trimmed hatrack for $6,500-7,500.

and Rustic Black Forest for $22,500-35,000.

Likelihood is strong that the hatrack will lose out anyway, to either Ski Trip or TiVo. It's really not quite safe for Flar and I to venture into a furniture store anytime soon, anyway.

Yes, I'm a posting fool.

But, when I can't talk...

This is an excerpt from a letter in the Wednesday packet from school. It is discussing the composition of a group called a Parent Advisory Council, that has been formed for the lower school (LS) at Sayre.

There are parents that have more then[sic] one student in the LS and some that also have students in other divisions. We also have a parent who is a staff member and a mix of male and female.


Now, are Flar, Knight and I just twisted, or does that make it sound like Sayre has a very forward-looking hiring policy?

And yes, this was written by the Director of the Lower School, not by the English teacher. ;)
