THE BIG MOVE
Don't look now, but
WE ARE OUT OF HERE!
On May 3rd, we received notice to vacate the cottage at 1530 Pi'iholo Road. Bob found us a new home on Makawao Avenue the next day.
MOVING DAY - MAY 18TH
While we were walk through our new space with John, our new landlord, the hardware in the curtain rod over the kitchen window gave out. Here Camille and John discuss interior design alternatives while little Koa, John's faithful friend, looks on through the front door.
THE RIGHT TOOL
Having the right tool for the job makes all the difference. Shaun generously shared this 14 foot flat bed truck with us. The hydraulic lift gate saved our backs and we were able to move everything, including the garden (see Modular Garden) in only 3 loads.
JUST LOOK FOR THE MAILBOX - WHAT?
We had told several of our friends how to find us by looking for the white mailbox beside the fuchsia-colored bougainvillea across from the Maui Horse Center. As we were unloading our second truck load of home and garden, a young man in a blue pick up truck slid across the median and wiped out the mailbox. Bob, Camille and John ran down to find a dazed driver next to his mother's truck. Fortunately, he was stopped by the tree outside our hedge before running through someone's living room wall.
After all that excitement, Camille declared the time to be beer-thirty and set two pints on the counter. Later, Bob got to work brewing the next installation and we prepared to spend the first night in our new home.
FIVE DAYS LATER
Chaos still reigns although our computers and home entertainment center are operational. By the end of the month, we were down to 5 unpacked boxes.
