A nine foot tall cactus is not the easiest

...to move, but H and I managed to get it out of the house in one piece without injuring ourselves. And so it begins. We are turning the living room into a studio.

What happens to the cactus?

Brenda Schmidt said...

Hopefully it will find a new home.

I'll take the couch and chair. Can you send them in the mail?

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha! Too late. We advertised today and everything sold! Everything but that poor cactus.

Rhett said...

If it only needs a little light, you can send it my way.

I smell a photo-essay on the way... or at least, that better be what I smell.

Brenda Schmidt said...

The cactus would be happy to live with you, Rhett! Come get it. It looks so lonely out there on the step.

I think that's my scone you smell. Fresh out of the oven.

We spent the day moving things. Heavy things. And I manned our brand new ultra steel p-handle hand truck. Ha! If you weigh 600 lbs or less, I can give you a lift anywhere, any time, with minimal damage to the surrounding walls. I'd suggest you wear a helmet.

I don't think my poor old Civic would make it... or hold a 9 foot cactus. I feel very sad about this cactus. Can't someone save it? I don't know that I have ever mentioned this, but I am a bit of a green thumb.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Are you sure you can't strap the cactus to the roof?

I'm starting to feel very sad about the cactus, too. We've had it as long as we've been together. Which is almost as long as you've been alive, Rhett.

Don't get sentimental and hug it goodbye, B.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha! Very funny, G.

H says he'll advertise it on traders post this week. I'm sure someone will take it. Who wouldn't want such a grand cactus! Ok. Maybe people with kids. Or eight-foot ceilings...

Brenda, I know that cactus would look fantastic in my house! I doubt it just make a trip down here and deliver it to me?

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha!
