We have had this antique bedroom set (full-size bed, dresser and mirror) in our garage for 25 years, taking up space. My SIL asked if she could have it. We said sure!! Get that thing out of here!! BIL Jason says he will be here in two hours so I go to the garage to survey the situation and oops! The headboard, footboard, sideboards and slats are stashed in the rafters. And the dresser is buried beneath tons of crap in a corner.
So I begin moving stuff from the corner, pry the dresser out and wait for Jason. He’s a really cool guy! Firefighter/paramedic…. He’s seen it all! After three back surgeries, a neck surgery and donating a kidney to his chief, he still has a Great sense of humor. I’m thinking that he had better because I’m not going up that ladder!!
By the time he arrives I have moved the cars to the street and the dresser is ready to go. But the bed of his pickup has a mattress and box spring, filling it to the top. We decide to pull the mattress out, lay the bed parts and mirror in and then reload the mattress. So far, so good. But then there’s the matter of the dresser! He tells me, No problem!! I have plenty of tie-downs! And sure enough, that load was secure!!
We shoot the breeze for awhile and he takes off (50 mile trip!) and that’s when I realize that I have to put all stuff back! But it is more organized. Now wasn’t that an interesting story?? LOL
Then rain is gone (we got 4"), and the snow is gone (our cabin got 2 feet!!) but more storms are lined up beginning in Monday and yes, my sprinklers are turned off. I wish my neighbor’s were…
Buzz’s leg is doing much better! He’s back to barking at the mailman, UPS trucks and school busses!!
Pretty boring post but I like to keep in touch with my friends!!
PS: The lab called today and informed me that they ‘misplaced’ my blood sample so I have to go back tomorrow! Idiots!!!!
PPS: My Desktop PC took a HUGE dump tonight! Won’t boot and so I can’t get to "System Recovery", so I am on my wife’s machine. I need to either take it in to get fixed or get a new one for Christmas. Becky’s friend got this one for me and he asked what model I wanted but he bought something totally different!! This thing has not worked well since I got it!! I WILL buy my own the next time. So tomorrow I’ll switch to my laptop. I’m tired of talking with ‘Techs’ from India! In the meantime, I might be missing for a few days. If I don’t get back, Have a VERY Merry Christmas!!
Have a GREAT weekend!!
