If you’re looking for something interesting to do, look on Facebook Marketplace. People are constantly selling strange items that can be fun to buy for yourself or as gifts for others. My sister was searching through the Marketplace and found someone selling a 8 foot tall sasquatch made of wood. After she put the info in our sisters’ chat, we all promptly agreed to pitch in and buy it to surprise our dad. I drove us a half hour to pick it up from this elderly man’s house, and we assigned our mom to distract our dad while we came home and carried the giant sasquatch to the backyard.
My dad was thrilled when he saw it! He painted it and waterproofed it before positioning it against some trees in the backyard. It’s so big that neighbors walking by our house on the street can see it from certain angles.
