It occurred to me that since I have no idea when the satellite is turned off and my computer is disconnected, how long it will be before I'm able to communicate with the world again. Better
get a post off before that occurs.
So here it is. The twenty one days of appointments to sell furniture is over. The HUGE sale yesterday was very successful and the door to the guest house is closed and locked until after the move on Tuesday. Then I'll address the left over art, linens, books and a few more little items.
I'll get a charity over here to pick it all up by the weekend or whatever.
Then it will be a "forward looking" operation.
There were so many people at the sale yesterday and as always, some memorable moments. The grown children who were age 7,6,5,4,3,2 and 1 when I moved in came to see me. Their Mom was at work but they wanted to buy furniture and other assorted items. They did. Then we sat and talked about all the kites I used to bring them from Texas so they did not have to use garbage bags to make kites. I was thrilled that they remembered. The oldest, now 25, remembered all the little toys that I used to bring back and then we would sit on the curb and play. Must admit, I got choked up while talking to them. The kids lost their dad to cancer about five years ago. One of the finest families that I have ever had the privilege to know. I'll miss them.
So many stories, so little time.
See you on down the road, or to be more exact, on the other side of San Miguel!
