I am going to take a small break
from my "finding the house, and fixing it up" story
... to tell you that TODAY we had a break from the rain!
So I walked down the hill into Alton, proper, this morning
to pay Mills Feed Store an important visit.
I had been anxious and excited about this quest for several days.
I wanted straw ... lots of it.
And they have it ... lots of it!
I purchased twenty bales of straw ...
thankful they will deliver to me for no extra charge!
Mr. Mills delivered the bales himself ... he is a very nice man,
and he stacked the bales neatly right where I wanted them
without me even having to show him where.
Mr. Mills sure did make "lifting those things" look easy ...
I thought I'd be able to, but I couldn't do it.
I had to call my assistant for help.
She's got her favorite tool, a tape measure, handy ...
and she is ready to go!
We have lots of work ahead of us ... hubba-hubba, chop-chop!
To be continued ...
