Wonder Boy did indeed show up, and miracles were wrought. Judy came too, and so did Camryn from next door. Weather being perfect, everyone kicked butt including me with new superpowers thanks to recent rehab work. And then after supper Greg and I reassembled the bed.

The LR wicker loveseat I will miss was set in a perfect garage spot I'll see each time I enter the garage, and is handy for lawn parties.

Camryn has to say goodbye for 9 months due to a family situation, at which sobering news several of us cried.

Brandon has a last day before we go (Friday), and is set for weekly weeding. Son and DIL confirmed, amidst all this work today, that they are on board to help-- not on truck unloading day but 10 days later to unpack BOXES and help Greg set up his woodshop.

The updated list below has only a few easy items to finish Friday w Brandon. Tmrw we reward ourselves w a Cincy hockey game.
