Thanks to the incredibly productive volunteer army of jducouer, _dragonwolf_, udalrich, jjaynes, belu, lisa, and a flanking effort by shprintzah, last weekend’s preliminary assault to take Fort Maynard went better than expected. Well enough that asdr83 and I were able to take a leisure day on Mondayand trip up to Cape Ann, where we ate seafood and soft serve, and wandered around Gloucester and Hammond Castle (which, while a lovely place, has all the pros and cons of being a private collection). As a byproduct of that assault, we discovered that we are within walking distance of Maynard Center, which houses at least one very worthy Thai restaurant.
Thank you. We couldn’t have accomplished nearly as much without the help of the above seven people.
But we’re not finished. No, having gained much ground in this trench warfare of a move, it is time that we got over the top and finish it once and for all. Now comes the heavy lifting, the great ground assault needing the strongest of arms. Yes, it is time to move the furniture. We’re renting a truck Saturday morning, and will have it all day. As with last weekend, the biggest concentrated effort will be at 1:00 pm (but we wouldn’t say no if you could only come earlier or later), so if you haven’t yet pitched in, we’d be very appreciative if you could lend a hand. We provide food and drink to those who help, and as we found out last weekend, that can be very tasty food indeed.
I know some of you (natbudin, captainecchi [and electric_d_monk?], bgabin, and perhaps others [_dragonwolf_ again?]) have already given offers of help, so volunteers are in good company. As the maxim goes, many hands make light work, and given that it is furniture, let’s make it as light as we can, no?
