Monday, April 27, 2020 – Runaround Day

Hiya Sweetie,
Well, another day, another few more dollars of sold and donated items. I took three different trips to the house today, first to pick up the Encyclopedia Brittanicas. I’ve been trying to sell it, but it’s become clear that printed books are just about obsolete these days. Apparently not even Goodwill will take an encyclopedia! I finally called the tiny Altamont library, and they gladly accepted the donation. Hard to believe how much we paid for it, and how obsolete it’s become. I found a bookstore in Murfreesboro that says he may be interested in the set of the Great Books of the Western World, at least they’re a little more timeless. Second trip was to get the coffee table, which I delivered to someone in Coalmont. I’ve been using the parking lot of the Cruise In Cafe as a meeting place. The building itself burned down about six months back, so I’m told, but the family that ran it seems to still be living in a trailer next to it. Anyway, the last trip was back to the house where a mother and son from Gruetli met me to get the bedroom set, which I had to mark down to a ridiculously low price, but those four pieces take up so much room I had to get them out of there. Unfortunately, they showed up in a tiny truck that was too small to take it all, so they just took two pieces and the dresser mirror for now, and will come back tomorrow with a full-size truck, or pay me extra to deliver it. Then in the middle of the day, Apollo escaped from his anchor line and started wandering, taking Flash with him, of course, so I had to run back and help get them back in their little paddock. With all the rain, what little grass that was in there has been completely destroyed, it’s little more than a mud bog now, but at least it’s confined to a fairly small area. Finally made it back to camp after 8:00, fed the horses, played with Lola a bit with the frisbee that lights up in the dark, just to make sure she sleeps tonight. She was restless last night, scratching on the bedroom door and dragging her bed all around the trailer, hopefully she’ll be better tonight. Had time to watch a couple of Deep Space Nines, including one where Brian Keith was the guest star! Pretty good company! At least this show has some good acting, including regulars like Colm Meaney and Rene Auberjonois, and the writing’s pretty decent, too. Anyway, crammed a couple of those is, and now it’s late, so I’m heading off to bed. Good night, darlin’! Love you!
