How many of you remember that 1962 movie ”The Music Man”? (Yes, I’m sure most of you do!)
Remember the scene when the Wells Fargo Wagon is heading into town to deliver the musical instruments, and everyone is singing and dancing in the streets? Sure you do…
”Oh ho the Wells Fargo Wagon is’a COMING down the street, and it could be something special for me.”
and now you’ll have that dang song stuck in your head for the next few hours!
Well on Friday we had to drive to Ah’Lanna for the wife’s “poking, prodding, and blood-letting” appointment (still trying to get her on a kidney transplant list) and while we were up there we went and found the place I’ve been looking at on Craigslist for almost 6 months. They sell modular office buildings (aka : portable school classrooms).
We looked at about 10 different ones and I finally picked out a 24’ X 35’ double wide. It’s gonna cost as much to have it brought down here as the building costs, but the total price is still WAY LESS than I can have the same size shop built here on my lot. It should be here end of this week or first of next week. Gonna take the tongues and axles off and drop it flat on the ground so it wont look like a “trailer”. It’s already fully wired (including 220) and has 4’ fluorescent light fixtures on the ceiling. I think there was 8 fixtures in each half. It also has a (WORKING) heat/AC unit built in.
FINALLY ! We’ve been here since June 1 of last year and all the “stuff” that was in my 30’ X 40’ shop back in 10aSEE has been jam-packed into an 11’ X 20’ storage closet. I can hardly wait… gonna be like Christmas in May when I get to unpack all my stuff and set up the new place.
No pictures yet but if you squint your eyes and tilt your head to the left, you can picture where it’ll be in the back yard on my side of the fence next to the neighbor’s barn. :-)
