AmandaJ: Hi there. I will be helping with your search.
AmandaJ: How are you tonight?
You: I am fine! How are you?
AmandaJ: I'm doing wonderful, thanks!
AmandaJ: So you would like some info on building wooden crosses?
You: That is good to hear. Yes I was trying to find some information on building a large wooden cross
You: preferably around 12 feet tall or so
AmandaJ: I'll get right on that
AmandaJ: I appreciate your patience while I find exactly what you need.
You: thank you maam! Take all the time you need
You: you are serving a good purpose!
AmandaJ: Well thank you
AmandaJ: is this for outdoor purposes, I assume?
You: Oh yes, most certainly!
AmandaJ: What problems are you running into?
You: I was just looking for some general directions. I would probably be able to put something together on my own though
AmandaJ: I imagine you'll have to have a nice sturdy bottom... probably a concrete base to support it
You: Instead of that, could you help me find something on different types of wood? Like which ones burn easily but are fairly sturdy?
You: Yes that is true, although I was thinking something more along the lines of cables
AmandaJ: So you are looking to ignite the wood?
You: Well yes eventually. Possibly something that burns fairly brightly and emits a good bit of heat
AmandaJ: This isn't a really relevant site
AmandaJ: it has a couple pointers
AmandaJ: I'll continue to search and again, I appreciate your patience
You: It is no problem what so ever, you are being very helpful!
You: Do you think that something like white cedar would be a good wood to use?
You: I hear there is a white pine as well
AmandaJ: I will check more on that
You: My sincerest thanks to you
AmandaJ: Thanks for your paitence, there doesn't appear to be alot of information on the subject
You: There doesn't seem to be anymore these days
You: I remember back when I was young you could ask your next door neighbor about this sort of thing
You: Not much coming up? I have to leave for my costume party in a few minutes

After years of being misunderstood, I had hoped we finally had "our" story. I was wrong.
He had a yellow inflatable tube around his waist, the kind with a comical duck head. There was a tiny fish in one of his hands, and a trident in the other. In the background a squirrel wearing shades was water skiing.
