What's Not to Like?....Hmmm....

Spent 5 hours, in the back of the FUSO...unloading, on the little Ford...I backed the trucks, tail to tail, rolled down the window...so I could hear my music... and began to sort...and unload...I knew it was going to take awhile... Had a lot, on, that isn't going to Nashville... I was on the little back road, behind the House.... I have never seen so much traffic, on that little road...isn't there, like a Football Game, or something...today?...I thought everyone would be inside.... I waved, from the back of the trucks...as folks rolled by....Everyone waved back.... except.... a little, 30 something, blond...{petite...well groomed...in her, new...warm...SUV...} as soon as our eyes met... she looked away... ahhh...o.k...{bless her heart...}... was it the gnarly load... was it my fancy boots... or, maybe, it was was my 3 and 3/4, horse and dog hair covered, gloves...waving at her...{they used to be 4... but they can't take the strain...} Maybe, she didn't like my socks, with my pants tucked in them... well... I was carrying a blanket chest, and a half dozen chairs...and, two room size rugs...and a small pie safe... on my shoulder, in over knee deep snow... I surely didn't want snow getting in my pant legs...I made many trips... and...Blondie... my feet are dry....
Amy popped in...and helped with two of the pieces... Bless her Heart...{and I mean..Bless her Heart...I say 'bless their heart'...at other times...ahh, too..} {Nashville...here we Come! Allyson called, while Amy was here...were getting all of plans together! Yee Haw!!!}

Hey Betty!

LOL - I can see the little blonde perfectly! Your description makes it very clear in my mind. Sometimes "they" come into my shop and I can tell "they" are feeling very out of place. And that is alright. . . A big old warehouse isn't for everyone.

Have fun in Nashville.
