MMM going to try with a little help from my friends

Seven good men and Omi (my almost 84 year old mother) up in the new "U.S. home base" (formerly known as "Omi's house") the afternoon after moving more mountains of stuff. This is why Jesus says, it's harder for a rich guy to enter the kingdom than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. It's so damn hard to rearrange, shake down, get rid of, box up all the stuff we rich folks accumulate. But sooner or later all that STUFF paralyzes. So. With lots of help, we've managed to lighten up, and begin the move.


  1. My favorite part of this photo is the cameo by the famed Tea With Milk mug.

    It must be mine. It will be mine.

  2. Rolf von Friedgen? That was unexpected.

    This is actually your favorite nephew.

  3. Christa-
    This is a first for me as I have never been motivated to read a blog in the past.
    I look forward to future postings.
    Merry Christmas!
