Today at the Hotel Thompson, we say goodbye to the rest of our furniture. Last Thursday, Salvation Army came out and picked up some pieces. Today, Goodwill will be picking up some pieces. What is final, the junk man will be coming by this afternoon and picking it up. It has been a long week getting this far. To think, by tonight the kitchen and front room will be empty.
Kitchen table, chairs, china cabinet and entertainment center – you were all good in your efforts these past 16 years while you have lived here. You have seen good times and bad. We have served many of meals, laughed and cried at the table. And furniture – sofa and couch – you have especially been great these past 11 years. You’ve taken a lot of torture from us anipals. We will all miss you dearly because we have been told we can’t be on the new furniture – rolls piggy eyes. That hurts. But mom/dad said not to worry, they will work something out with us.
This starts Phase II of the renovation here at the Hotel Thompson. The painting. Colors have been picked out. Rollers are ready. Not a lot of painting but some contrast painting is lined up. So that’s where we are my friends. Phase II. Phase II only has a couple of days and then the end is near – Phase III. I can make it… right?
