In the video above, one of West County's finest technicians, "Nub," is skating a composite plastic bench that I am almost completely sure is the exact same one David Uthus, Joe Jackson and I "found" at a business off Highway 40 some 6 years ago or so. We took it and dropped it off behind the pharmacy David and I worked at back then, Fitzpatrick Pharmacy (colloquially known as the "Fitzpatrick Funny Pharm.") There the bench sat unskated besides a few sessions on the rough ground behind the pharmacy. We had hoped to take it somewhere else to skate but alas, it was left and forgotten then thankfully "found" again by a different group of plastic bench enthusiasts, and we never saw it again.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of this bench, please let the Pretty blog know. It would be amazing to have a reunion with her at the Kingshighway Bridge D.I.Y. Project Fundraiser (colloquially known as "Shitside" by some with a sense of humor or without enough breath to say "Kingshighway Bridge D.I.Y. Project" whenever the need arises. Phew, that's a lot of syllables). So if you have said bench, please bring that beautiful thing by if you plan on attending, or we can come by and borrow it and drop it back off for you after the party. This goes for anyone else who has any obstacles they would like to contribute! Thanks!
