Yesterday’s fun

Borrow a smaller tent!

This 20x20 was a bear to put together, since the pieces weren’t marked.  The guys worked hard…and MM wound up with a bloody finger, poor baby.  Thanks, guys!

We got this big boy, a 10x18, and two smaller tents put together in just over 2 hours…and D fer done!  There is much space for STUFF under them so that everything will stay dry in case of rain, plus the parish hall is loaded with STUFF.  We hope to raise $3,000.  Come help!

Church members get a preview tonight, then the sale begins tomorrow at 8 for the public.  That means that the workers have to be there early—what?  I don’t do mornings!!!!!!!  Something is wrong with that picture!  I will be there till it is over at 2…and stay till it is all cleaned up.  Let’s hear a collective awww.

Guess who will need a back rub?!  And wine…

A 20x20 tent with an air mattress under it is my idea of camping:)

Poor you having to get up early - awwwww, no fair! Back rub and wine cyber gifts sent your way:0

Hope that everybody pitches in and you raise the $3,000 and a bit more, Sandy.

If I lived closer I'd definitely be there but definitely NOT at 8 a.m. This kid doesn't do mornings either!

Have fun and I hope the $3,000 goal is reached AND passed!

Have a terrific day and I just want to say Awwwww! Big hugs to you both. :)
