Getting By With A Little Help From My Friends...

is not only one of my favorite songs
but it's the only way to get things done quickly.
This was our last big load.
Holy moly!
These church pews were HEAVY!
Toni rented a trailer for the last big load.
I have not counted the trips
nor the gas
nor the sweat.
Each one way trip was 52.96 miles or one hour and twelve minutes if you hit the lights right.  I  know Toni would have done the same for us.  Maybe two more trucks, sweeping the units, and disposing of the cardboard properly and we will be done.
Today the reward for the help was cool spring water, a fishing adventure and swimming in the creek.
Soon we can clean vehicles and store our moving shoes for a while.

I would say that a reward like cool spring water, fishing adventure and swimming in the creek, plus all that great food is a sweet deal. I coulda easily set down to your hoecakes n all the rest too. We cleaned out the barn yesterday and yes, it took us all day, but the place is cleanand the garbage will go tomorrow morning. I love this spring clean up. Got rid of a lot of collected stuff and old stuff and even gave a cart to a new neighbourhood child - now her Mom can haul her around in the cart, which they did off and on all day, passing by the house. So cute to see. Today, ride my motorbike and take it easy. You have a good one too. Hugz to Marcy n all.

glad to hear the job is done. hope the heavy benches sell quickly... and glad you had family to help... is the shop that far from your home or is the storage that far? for some reason i thought the shop was on your property

That reward sounds particularly appealing. And you have done a good thing, too, which is always satisfying!
