Excellent technique, Cletus! Make it seem like you are truly trying whilst running into everything you can get your devious little paws on. The speakers were an inspiration! Good job indeed.
Aren't "alley finds" the best? (Our trash cans are in the alley). A virtually brand new leather and fabric adjustable office chair? Yes please! I also learned with that one that you CAN remove smoke smell. Numerous shelving units over the year serve in my basement and in the attic. A weird wooden double sided, double shelves, flat top unit has served as microwave holder/shoes holder/assorted kitchen stuff holder/and floor storage underneath same for myriad types of stuff for at least 25 years.
I am SO jonesing to eat OUT. To sit down at a table and be served. To joke around with a server who has known us for years. Eergghhhhhh. Curbside pickup works well and it's not like we're starving or I'm being reduced to actually cooking but I want the social aspect sooooo much. I also don't want to be around other unknown people etc etc so I realize this doesn't make sense. 😐. Ok. Rant over.
Yesterday was a hard day. We had to drive to Fargo (80 miles south) to pick up a replacement portable camper toilet (who knew that would be A Quest). Since that's half way to the nursing home where DH's mom is FINALLY in memory care (should have been two years ago but I'm just a DIL and that topic is a third rail issue I have discovered--denial is knot just a river in Egypt indeed) we continued onward for a window visit. For the first time ever it was obvious she had no idea who DH was that day. 😥.
