A Very Different Day

Wow, was today a different day than normal…

Started off out at our south store moving a couple of bookcases for Allyson and also moving an antique beautiful 11 foot long old candy counter into our south store. That took four of us.

Then moved the wonderful shelves into Allyson’s place. Then Kris and I headed into the valley to have a nice lunch, see Rogue One, have a nice dinner and pie, then back home by 1 in the morning.

In the process, after the movie, I also got from the theater for our north store the standee for Rogue One and another one. Took a ton of work and labor to get those two apart so the face of both would fit into the Cadillac. (Didn’t bring the van so the backs of it all got recycled.) The faces of the standees will be up high on our store walls. They are cool.

But an hour-and-a-half of manual labor breaking down the standees, plus the moving of shelves and counter this morning. Wow.

So sitting here at 3:30 in the morning I am beat up, sore, and exhausted. But a fun day.

Back to some longer posts tomorrow about more questions.
