As promised here are the pictures of the furniture that Bonnie and mom found for me at a garage sale. The guy sold the desk to me for $100 and when I called to say I definitely wanted it, he told me he would sell me the credenza and hutch for another $100. They also threw in the little end table for free.
Getting the furniture was an adventure of epic proportions. Me, mom, Terry, Dan and my nephews, Elliott and Alec, borrowed a flat-bed trailer from one of Terry's teacher friends for the cost to me of one dinner in the restaurant of his choice. That's a bargain.
We brought the desk, hutch and credenza to my house, brought my computer furniture to Bonnie's house and brought Bonnie's computer furniture to Terry's house. Bonnie and I both live in two story townhouses and the furniture was going (and being taken from) rooms upstairs. Are you tired, yet? I am. Thank God for strong nephews and brother-in-laws.
When Terry brought the trailer back to her friend, he told her that the pin had come out of the trailer hitch (whatever that means). Come to find out, that's a very bad thing. As usual, our little guardian angels were on the job.
As I've said before, God takes care of small animals and dumbasses. The dumbasses would be us.
