What a birthday I had! Sandy, Robin, and Jeff made every bit of it special. It was truly a day to remember.
To all the friends, family, and loved ones who called, wrote poems, and sent wishes, thank you! I did my best to keep up but at one point I fell behind with my thank-you notes and then Facebook went haywire and I was no longer able to post anything. It was very frustrating. I hope you know that I read and loved each reminder that we all live in the same community.
This morning it’s back in the wheel for me. Lots to do before we head back to Missouri.
Yesterday was the last day of our lease so it was all hands on deck to take down shelves, take out trash, and clean up and haul away the final loads of odds and ends. To relieve the tedium, Jeff and friend/neighbor Linda Goodman engaged in a duel with yard sticks. You have to take your grins where you can find them.
Thanks to Robin, Tim, Jeff, and Linda for all their help. We were nearly too weary to stand by the time we finished at 8:00 or so last night. Now we have everything that was left of Gamble’s safely stored so that Sandy can greet customers and go about the business of placing remaining merchandise for sale online.
Today is Sandy’s birthday. If it’s a pretty day, I’m sure we’ll spend part of it at the beach. We got some shopping done for her yesterday but need to finish this afternoon. Going out tonight. Should be a good day.
Jeff took this picture yesterday just outside Tommy Bahama’s at Sandestin.
