    Default Oh my god ! Prices

    just went to buy two replacement covers for a paint roller - RD$ 649 pesos

    are they having a laugh or are they made out of guatamalan antique mohair

    and this wasnt the gringo price it was marked- no wonder people dont paint their houses too often

    and to know you could have all the hair of the pig Whirleybird roasted last sunday for free... and those hairs make wonderful brushes and rollers...

    you are losing your touch, JR...

    :/ Oh dear.... Maybe yours was made from Guatamalan antique mohair, because I bought a roller on Monday for 150 RD which has done a fine job of painting my office and bathroom.

    In the campo where my family is from a few ladies had them, we even would bring used clothes and have them make us new outfits.....so cool , we probably paid a few cents per outfit.....
