Well...it's nearly that time...time to lift the 833 pounds of tank into the hole in the wall of the new house!  I'm hoping to get about 10 people (more the better) to meet me Friday April 4th to help get the tank into position.  Can I get an idea of who will be available, and what time?  Colleen and I are planning on taking all that help out for dinner afterward (as a little incentive).   ;)

I'm going to rent a lift, so all we should have to do is move it across, not pick it up.  I've also got some of the big suction cup handles reserved so we can have a good place to grab hold of it.   :)

Nate,
    I have finished  The Master Bathroom.    I am buying a 300 gallon Tub also.   I was going to ask you if you could help me with that?   You can use it if needed.   I will make every effort to be there. :)
come over and see..:)

I should be there to help.  May get exempted by the wife and family due to that being a family birthday weekend.

OK, thanks Rick.  Hope you'll be able to make it.

OH, and Colleen just reminded me that I need to let people know that there'll be a frag of your choice for anyone that helps as well as dinner (we are thinking Brickhouse in West Richland). ;D

Awesome, thanks guys!  The new house is in Horn Rapids.  Anyone that needs directions let me know.

Nacho, no problem on after work today.  I'll give you a call later this morning when I have a chance.

I don't know that I'll be able to stick around afterwards, but I'll definitely be there to help.  Just need to know the time and place.
Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.
