No!  Gardiner! It's a town in NY.  And this is the kinda stuff they give away for free down there.  Now you understand the homonymal confusion, right?  This pic, sent in by loyal reader Susan R. really highlights the problem.  A truck load of mushroom dirt goes out to little SR as our little way of saying "thanks!"

A river of free in Brooklyn

Reader Jenny K. sends in this gaggle of free shots from Brooklyn, USA.  Is that Dutch for something?  (google break) Yes!  It seems to come from the name of a town in Holland, Breukelen near Utrecht.

Anonymous was a woman

Holy crap, I don't even remember where these pics came from.  They're all super nice and I really should have posted them sooner and remembered who sent them in.  But I didn't and I don't.  So this week, I'm sending a coupla cases of PBR to the local shelter, signed anonymous.  Our little way of saying "thanks, forgotten friend!"

Freakin' Trumansburg

A quintet of beauty from beauty Claire M. who claims "there's always a lot of free stuff in Trumansburg, N.Y."  Well, that settles it.  Now we know where we're retiring to.  When the time comes.  Soon.  Right after the last of these kids finished college in 12 years or so.  Eeeesh.

A carton of Tareyton goes out to Claire, who, apparently, would "rather fight than switch."

Two from Woodstock

Two from Woodstock.  In front of Gypsy Wolf and on Rock City Rd. The free season is upon us.
