07:32 – Happy Birthday to Barbara, who turns 3Dx today. I couldn’t think of a better gift than a new house.

With the movers due to arrive Friday morning, frantic packing continues. We won’t get it all finished by Friday, but we’ll get enough of it done that we probably won’t need to hire a U-Haul truck later.

Our Internet service in Winston-Salem is being disconnected tomorrow and it may take a day or two to get it working in Sparta, so this post or tomorrow morning’s post will be the last one here for a few days. Tomorrow evening will be our first time without a full-time Internet connection since 1990, when we were using a nailed-up modem connection for 24×7 Internet service. I guess we’ll have to do something old-fashioned, like reading.


14:55 – We got back about half an hour ago from a quick trip up to Sparta. We made a quick stop at the attorney’s office to pick up the deed and a refund for an overpayment, stopped at the Internet place to get the fiber broadband activated, stopped by to do a quick check of the house, and headed back down to Winston.

We’re trying very hard not to let this move interfere at all with our business. We try hard to ship orders the day they’re received or the next day if they arrive too late for us to get them out first-day. So far, we haven’t had to delay shipping even one kit by even one day. As a matter of fact, I just boxed up and shipped a kit that was ordered early this morning. I’d like to continue our perfect record. In the five years we’ve been doing this, we’ve never failed to meet that standard for in-stock kits, and we’ve almost never been out-of-stock on any kit.

Back to packing.
