Paul Bunyan.... Home.....

Well....I gotta tell ya....
I was loaded for Bear...this morn....In a month...I'll be headed towards Nashville.... I have a Ton...to get done...before the Truck leaves the drive....{and another show...in Anamosa...before then..}
Paul Bunyan {10 foot tall Farm Cupboard, that I have Lovingly named "Paul Bunyan".... as he was built for a Giant...he is a one piece, stepback cupboard....from the mid 1800's...that looks like he was scaled...for someone 7 feet tall.... oh my...} was in the Fuso { Box Truck...I take to the shows...} Paul had enjoyed his second trip to Nashville, for 'display' only.... last February....and...said 'hello' to everyone...at my Sale....and Gold Rush...he was ready to come back to the Rabbit Hole....
I had sold the massive Wardrobe....and  have to deliver it....one of these days....I thought...if I got on it.....I could move the Wardrobe out...and bring Paul in.... I wasn't asking anyone...for help....{ I get way too much grief...when I do... I can usually get it done, myself....quicker...} If I take my time...I can get it done....and...for the most part...unscathed... I knew it would take me all day...but...it was a job...that had to be done....
Then...Mike and Peg stopped by.... we visited.... and they wouldn't leave... without helping me....I reassured them...I Can Do This.... but...no....
Oh My... Mike never understood...what a big deal, it is to move things...in and out of the Rabbit Hole....Peg has shared a few stories with him...{he keeps saying I need a conveyor belt system....oh my...} Unless you have experienced it... well.... you'd never understand.... {I think he gets it...now...you have to be Crazy...to do this...}
We got everything torn apart....and moved.... Peg only ran for her life....once... Mike, took a few breaks...to get his mind, in focus.... and Paul....he's home....
I feel Great....because...I figured I'd be down there...'til 8:00....
It's All Good....
{tho...Peg says, Mike is going to have some intense therapy...after this ordeal....oh my....}
Thanks...So Much...for Their Help...It was Great Having Peg Back.... She goes to Mayo, tomorrow...they will be seeing how much her tumor has shrunk....then...if  enough...they will start radiation...if not...more chemo...please keep her in your Prayers....along with all...who suffer, today...}

{this is Paul Bunyan....stuck on the ceiling... at an angle...we lifted...twisted....turned...cursed.... and broke a sweat.... but He's Home! That's Mike.... standing next to Paul.... Yeah....This is a Big One....}
 Love to You...

Heart of Country....twice.... He's Home.... and...think....he's pretty happy to be there....
Love to Ya...Sweet Pea...
