The Old White Farm Cupboard found it's way to The Rabbit Hole's Garden Gate! All I can say is...WELCOME!

Had to kick my shoes off...{I see I got a shot of them, beside the Old Cupboard...} to be able to Dance with this Massive Partner...Whew! He's about four and a half feet wide....by seven and a half feet tall...A Friend called me on it....she said it was my kinda cupboard....she was right! She and her husband brought it to my door....I told John, she was bringing a Big Cupboard....he asked how she was hauling it here... I said, in her pick up... he said...oh...it's not a Big cupboard, then.....I have to laugh...
Poor John....my poor friends... My Kind Of Cupboard, usually won't fit too well, in a regular truck...Unless, I'm the one loading it...with straps, and straps...using 2x4's, to pry it, and 4x4's to balance it...and have 'em hanging over of both sides of the box, and 5 feet out the back....and listen to tires rub, on every... single.... bump in the road....
This Guy...He's not Big.... He's Stout!
I got overheated, yesterday,  earlier, in the day... I was actually shaking... {it was kind of scary...} So we unloaded the cupboard...last evening...I danced with it, a little....then let it rest, outside....I leaned him back, on an old grinder...{he's still upright...whew...we had a wicked storm!}I'll move him in, this morn...I just couldn't do it, last night... {I had a feeling...if I pushed myself...and kept dancing.... He would have been the winner...It was a Boiler, outside...}
He got a good shower... but....he's got lots of paint, and a shower did him good!
I'm thankful my friend thought of me, on this... Old Charmer....
Love to Ya!

{Peg and I were just talking about how all of us crazy Antiquer's ask so much from our bodies....yesterday morning...
When the cupboard came in, last night...my friend's husband really couldn't help much...he had hurt his back....so when I found that out...I put it in overdrive.... Get Out Of My Way....I'm getting up close and personal...Body Slamming...Grabbing A Hold....and Bull Dozing! Peg has witnessed this, many times....and RUNS!!! FAST!!!! {she says when I do this it scares the Crap out of Her!} It's the Mad March Hare...in her....and it's definitely the Mad Hatter in me....oh dear....}
{as much as I Bull Doze... I don't hurt the Cupboard....or, what ever Monster I move....and usually, not myself....it's when someone attempts to help....that's when we get hurt....all it takes, is one wrong twist...Yikes!}

I know yesterday I was moving some cupboards and everyone trys to help. I usually wait until they are gone and slide them across the room. Back can feel it today. Got the red cart ready to haul in.
