Wednesday Helen and I went out, one last time, for brunch and then to a show. We saw The Descendants starring George Clooney. We both enjoyed the movie, especially the scenery. Many of the scenes were in regular neighborhoods in addition to beautiful views of the Islands. The ending was sad, but still a good flick.
Several people have been calling, just to say goodbye. The hard part of leaving, of course, is leaving good friends behind. I tell them that they will have a place to go on vacation or they can just keep track of my adventures on my blog.
The rig looks empty, even though it is all still here. I take all the loose stuff and put it into tubs. Some are put on the floor behind the strapped down chairs. Some I leave on the counter, kept in place with spring loaded bathroom shower curtain rods. It even keeps the printers in place. Inside the cabinets I stuff packing material (foam, bubble wrap, etc.) in between dishes or vacant areas to keep things from shifting. In some of the cabinets I also use smaller spring loaded rods to keep things from opening doors while in transit. On other thing that I have done is to take l o o on g twist ties saved from earlier packages that I have gotten. I wrap them around door knobs that are next to each other. Those doors are not going to open.
I’m a list maker. So I thought that I could use a chalk board to write down things as I use them. I started looking for a small can, jar or bottle of chalk board paint to paint the inside of a cabinet door, not an easy find. What I did find was a piece of black foam core board that I cut to fit on the inside of the cabinet door, scored and folded the bottom to form a trough to hold a piece of chalk. Viola! It worked. Such an easy fix.
Since I’ve put everything away, all that’s left is to disconnect the utilities and hitch up the truck and get out on the road. Ted won’t be here until late, I think that I will go out to eat.
Looking forward to meeting you all out there.
Thanks for visiting
