Back to Business....

I spent the day, working around the house, and Shop....I had put a lot on hold, to get things pulled together for Liz's Shower... Now...
IT'S PRE- SHOWTIME!
As Vikki just reminded me...2 weeks, until we leave...Oh Boy!{I'm so glad she's joining us!} I still had a dry sink,  on the back of the Ford, {a Big Daddy Dry Sink!} and an Amana Cupboard... I unloaded them, myself, yesterday, and put them in the shop... I wish someone would have a video camera, and film, when I move these Monsters...out of the truck... down the drifted, and crusted snow filled ditch... then, another 60 feet... then, through a 32 inch door... then, across a stone floor... then, another door...with no cart, or dolly... {the snow is too deep...I have a path... but my lungs won't take sucking in the cold air, when I shovel...it is...what it is...} I'm not really sure, how I do it myself... without hurting either one of us...Must be all of those Angels...that are hovering...{we go slow... and gentle...}
I thought the Shop seemed chilly... it was... The furnace was out... I worked on that, to no avail...then wrapped up plants, and took them to the house...Ken-Way, was coming to unclog our drain...{they are Great!} John about killed himself, working on that  drain...then I about killed myself...working the cable, with the drill...oh my...when that thing started twisting, it was all I could do, not to get wrapped up in it...John and I were a Mess! Black Sludge...everywhere!The Guys from Ken-Way, had it done, in a whistle! Yeah!
I've had people say, since I won't have anyone to help, this year, at the Shows...I should lighten up... not take so much Big Stuff...whatever.... that won't happen... as God as my Witness...{where have I heard that?} I will...make it happen... and... it will be as good...if not better, than the last couple of years! Or... I'll quit doing Shows...However it turns out... I'll do the Best I can...The Promoter deserves my Best... The Customer...deserves my Best... and The Wonderful, Old Treasures...ah...yes...it all...deserves my Very Best... if I can't do that...well...I'm done...I'll just work here at Home...maybe the Internet... maybe another job...who knows...
We have a Blizzard coming in... I need to make a quick run to town...
Hope everyone has a great day...
