Ah yes....spoken from a woman who's crawled around in an electrician's shed in bitter cold one night to harvest scrap pieces of entrance cable for its wonderful wire for figure sculptures....who saved scrap pieces of rigidfoam insulation and drywall for projects at school....who gleefully accepts styrofoam egg cartons and empty film canisters......who--well, you get the picture!
Congrats on your find AND for having the vision to SEE the treasure in someone else's trash! :-)
