Lynn goes to the Tulsa Home and Garden Show, and finds it mostly meh:
There was very little that you couldn’t see any day at Lowe’s or Home Depot. Fifty flooring companies with the exact same hardwood flooring; fifty countertop companies with the exact same granite counter tops; fifty window and siding companies with essentially the same windows and siding; and 500,000,000 tornado shelter companies… Okay, I might be exaggerating a little bit on that last one.
Maybe a little bit. I think there were half a billion roofing companies out here answering the most recent Hailing Frequency.
They also had a few things that don’t have anything to do with “home and garden”, like vehicles, and, because this is Oklahoma, by “vehicles” I mean big-ass pickups that are big enough to live in and you’ll probably have to if you buy one because they cost as much as a decent house, which you won’t be able to afford and make payments on the pickup too.
Not to mention the question of parking the damn truck somewhere near the house or somebody’s house, anyway.
