But not without some more fun. The not so nice dispatcher wanted to know if
I had a pickup that they could put it in. I said and then what do I do with
it. (Now he has no way of knowing that my mother owns a magic shop, and I
actually do a little slight of hand, but levitation is a little out of my
league.) There was a very long silence only broken by me. "Your driver
mentioned something about another truck that was shorter." I think he wished
I had not remembered that. Long story short, he rescheduled for this
morning at 9:00. The driver called and my husband met him at the bottom of
the driveway to direct traffic. Once to my studio he said I can't get this
in there... the ground is too soft. It took a lot of work and a little bit
of plywood, but he got it in the studio. I have most of the crate off and it
is a thing of beauty. It is the XL model, so it is Stainless Steel. When I
get situated I will take picture and put on my web site. But, speaking of
getting it situated, I have yet to figure out how I am going to get it off
the pallet short of four lumber jacks or learning the levitation thing. Any
ideas would be appreciated.

Now off to read the manuals...
