Mary told me to stop acting like a flamingo, so I had to put my foot down.
I was up at the crack of dawn, being careful to be quiet so Mary could sleep. She worked alongside me yesterday all day! I began outside in the front yard by removing the covers on the outside patio furniture and washing everything down.
Mary was up by 7:15 AM, and in a panic, she missed the first 15 minutes of her Women’s Business Integrity Meeting, I helped her get the laptop out and running, and then I resumed my work.
Zack popped over and spent a good hour helping us with the tuff we could not do, like moving couches, heavy chairs, and the planter boxes onto the fence. I love my grandsons; they are always willing to help old grandpa. Connor offered to come over after work, but we got most everything done.
I had the tools but didn’t have the energy to grind the bolts off.
The patio furniture was revealed, and it looks pretty good after six years!
The fruit trees were cleaned out, and mulch was added.
We took a planned break at 11:00 AM and got cleaned up, and headed for the Elks Lodge. We had a party going on as the regulars were there plus Sydney, Gayle, and Vic! Ronnie joined us for a few minutes.
Bill, Gayle, and Sydney had a great time talking about stuff.
The happy couple! We sat together at the end of the table as the table was full to overflowing.
Ronnie came by and brought Mary a rose from his garden, very thoughtful!!!
We departed the Elks and went to the potential “new home,” where we met with the inspectors. The news was good, with only a few items of concern. We know the place has termites, but we are in California, duh. We are going to call for a geology inspection just to be safe,
Visit the house:
After the visit with the inspectors, we returned to my house to continue “packing”. We worked until almost 9:00 PM before crashing. One more trip to the garage and I would explode! Tomorrow morning Mary has to work so we went to her house. Tomorrow the photographer will be joining us for picture taking.
