The last few days brought home to us the words of the old Beatles song With A Little Help From My Friends, except that we have received a lot of help from our friends! We picked up the U-Haul truck and car transporter trailer Friday morning and have been working long hours getting everything we could boxed up and crammed into it.

Unfortunately, my back has limited what I can do, so most of the load has fallen on Miss Terry and our friends Jesse Bolton, Dennis Williamson, and Scott Giddings. They all have done an amazing job helping with this backbreaking labor. Here are Scott and Jesse loading the top half of my rolltop desk into the truck. I think it says a lot about me as a person and as a neighbor that so many guys will spend the weekend away from their jobs doing all this just to make damn sure I really leave. 😊

As you can see, there’s not much left in the house at this point. With our bed packed away, Terry and I spent Friday and Saturday night at the local Best Western. This morning we have a few things left to put in the U Haul and the pickup, then we have to reconnect the car hauler to the U Haul, load my Mustang onto it, hitch the cargo trailer to the back of the pickup and hit the road. Hopefully we can have the wheels rolling by noon. It won’t be a fast trip, and we will probably stop in Dothan, Alabama for the night and go on to Gordo the next day.

We still need to return to Florida in a week or so to disassemble Terry’s two big Glamakra looms and pick up anything else that did not make it this trip. And I am sure it will take us a long time to get everything put away and get settled into our new home. But we are sure looking forward to it!

I don’t know if I will be able to update the blog much in the next few days, but I will try.

  1. Glad to hear the move is going good. Take care of yourselves and remember to take breaks. Take time to smell the roses.

  2. “They want to make damn sure I leave.” I actually am in pain. I laughed and coffee went up my nose.

  3. “I think it says a lot about me as a person and as a neighbor that so many guys will spend the weekend away from their jobs doing all this just to make damn sure I really leave.” I’m in pain. I was taking a sip of hot coffee when I read that. It went up my nose.
