I know one is not suppose to TOOT their horn or brag about their efforts or successes-[at least our Mom used to say that to us] but I am so proud of us! We moved out of the second storage unit last Thursday! My son, Justin and our nephew, Andy provided the muscle and we got stuff to the barn and to my side of the garage. We were finished before rush hour traffic after making a round trip to Monticello, the barn and then home. Not bad for a day's work. If you are like Donna and I, we need to rent a truck or van when we have to haul the big stuff around. We usually rent from Penske and I have absolutely fallen in love with the "Sprinter". It's bigger than a van but not as big as a 15' truck which is not my favorite to drive-it's just too big. So if you ever need to rent a truck remember about Penske and the Sprinter! It is so much fun to drive.

I have made several more trips to the barn with new goodies and plan to go to the barn tomorrow to begin pricing and displaying stuff. If I know us-it will take just about every day between now and MAY 23 to get everything done for the next sale. I will take before pictures tomorrow so you can see the progress of our efforts.

Before I close I must say that the Season Opening of the Barn House was spectacular!! Those Barn House Boys put on quite a show with their friends! So if you did not get to the opening event, the Flea Market 0n July 18 looks to be even bigger and better! So put it on your calendar-I counted 20 vendors who will be there-it is not to be missed!

So much fun to see you both at Barn House. Wasn't that crazy good fun?! Unfortunately I won't be able to come to your sale on the 23rd as we are going to be out of town that weekend, but I'm sure we will run into each other at Monticello some time soon. I hope.

It was fantastic, as always, seeing you both! The day couldn't have been more perfect. I'm hanging on to "cart cedergreen" until we meet again ;-)
