Flash: Four

Acquired from the internet

Repairing a home is never easy, especially the old ones, and especially when dealing with the eccentric owners with more money than sense. Carlos fed me the fourth of the railroad ties for the circular saw we were milling into four-by-two to repair flooring throughout the house.

Staining them will be a bitch, but it made the house ghost happy, and we got to charge for the special services on top of our extra fees for working in a haunted house.
