Last Day In Oregon, Ohio

Goodbye's have been said. Spent the day packing all the "stuff" we've been given into those large bins we bought and loading them into the truck. Joiner wasn't as hard to load as I thought it'd be. Good! Weighs down the back of the truck but I think the load will be okay.


SWMBO has gone off to her class in Ann Harbor so I'm puttering around the hotel and getting all my stuff packed. We'll put everything but a change of clothes into the truck when she gets back so we can get the hell out of Dodge by 0500 tomorrow. Should take about 11 hours to get to Horn Lake, Ms where my Uncle lives. (Called him and he's excited we're on our way.)
Sat outside and talked to some of the Hams I've gotten to know (as much as I can in only a couple of weeks). Nice guys and I really will miss a couple of them; but plan to keep in touch via e-mail. They really made me feel welcomed.

And that's it. May go outside and talk some more around 2200 and I might get to see SWMBO pull in.

End Of Day. Wednesday.

Got tired of sitting on my ass all day and got out and cleaned my FIL's Shop out in his garage. Was dirty. Messy. Some of those piles of sawdust had been there at least 4 years. Even found a, I don't know what to call it, "carpet' of dead mice inside his table saw cabinet. Cleaned all that out. Rearrangd some of his tool cabinets and swept the floor. Filled a 30-gal trash can with the stuff.

Other than that: SSDD. Trying to finish up laundry so I can start the final packing to take off Friday morning. Will do the final packing of the stuff they've given us tomorrow and load it into the truck. Joy. Won't be able to final load the truck until SWMBO gets back from her meeting in Ann Harbor. Oh, well.
Looking forward to getting through the reunion and start heading home. I don't really like Western WaRshington, but I do like our house.

Spending all this time with SWMBO has been a pure joy though. Too bad she's got to go back to work.
