My tireless helpers spent the last weeks of July removing furniture from the old house. This aggregation, including book cases, chests of drawers, cabinets, and an air fan, was less than one room's worth. Bookish readers would drool at the number of book cases that were taken out of the house but those same readers would not want their precious Terry Pratchetts or Mercedes Lackeys to be soaked in mildew, as these items were. The stink was awful, though not as epically bad as the fresh mouse pee of last winter. Honestly I don't think it could be remediated even if you wanted to keep the house and renovate it so the STARK FIST OF REMOVAL is coming soon. (One or two of you may actually know what that is. Bonus points for correct answer.)
I was just too tired to post at my usual absurd time earlier today but I managed to get this in before the day changed to August 5. Yeah, August. The legal papers for the official and final transfer of the house to the developers who bought it and its site, have arrived. Closing date is August 17. Thanks Mike for leaving a kind comment, I am really glad someone cares about this Blogification.
