Moving Day!

You may have notice my lack of updates lately.  Partly that is due to the fact that I have now moved into my place so it feels like the journey is done somehow… but I know I still need to catch you all up to speed so here I am posting again.  The other fact is that I haven’t had consistent internet access since I moved so it has been hard to make it happen.

Since I last wrote we ended up having over 250 people come and tour Margo at Home Hardware in Three hills.  It was very fun to show her off and to feel all the community support!

The next day my friend Curtis came and hitched up to Margo with his beefy Ram and we set off for Calgary.   We wanted to make sure no rocks went through the front window so we put some plywood on it.  I decided to use up some old spray paint I had kicking around and wanted to write Margo on the front.  Just as I finished writing the G and started to write the O the can ran out of paint… maybe Margo really just wants to be called Marg?

The drive from Three Hills to Calgary usually takes about 1.5 hours… it ended up taking us about 2.5 as we were going about 90Km/hr.  I’m quite glad we didn’t have to pull her all the way to Vancouver!  Although she did do quite well on the trip.  We had a few funny looks along the way.

                                       Yep… I’m the same size as a semi!

Stay tuned for more interior pictures soon!

    I don’t know why you would get strange looks. They haul everything by truck out here…
