Fun in the Sun!

With the approval of our Texas Room plan, the first order of business was to get rid of the shed we have sitting on the back of the lot. Terry got the satellite dish off of it and we found someone who needed the shed more than we did. He hired a crew to come over and move the shed. It is an 8 x 10 foot shed and build entirely out of wood, so it was quite heavy. The group arrived and made several attempts before leaving and getting more materials and tools with which to jack it up, etc. They finally accomplished the goal and once they got a dolly under it, the move went fairly smoothly. The got it off our lot, then moved it down our street, turned a corner and down another block, then moved it over the curb and onto the other guy's lot. Mission accomplished!

While that was going on, we had our street dinner and we both worked most of the day. We really got along well and there was some food left over we got to bring home. The dinner was sold out, so we no doubt made some money for the park. 400 tickets were sold and the hall was busy and filled for most of the two hours we were serving. We have a lot of good workers on our street and they did not disappoint. Almost everything was cleaned up and put away by 6:30 p.m. Not bad.

Till next time. . .
