Tessie the Toyota has been doing the grunt transport work for the church renovation, hauling the cement board, cement, mortar, grouting, tile, 4x4s and 2x4s and 2x6s and 4’x8′ sheets of plywood to the church, and then hauling away the ripped up upper sanctuary platform and pergo cardboard flooring to be done away with.
Meanwhile, Tessie had to haul a couple of trips worth of wood from a parishioner who’s moving to Iowa, dumping this wood in the front yard in preparation for trip waaaaay down the road for a family that survives on a woodstove. There’s some oak in here, but there are also pieces of apple and cherry, which will do nicely for smoking any deer or bear meat that they get. Before delivering that, I’ll have to get Tessie’s brakes worked up. I might have pushed her a bit too hard.
