The mother of invention...

We're flying out soon and the last minute packing is almost done. Fly out shows are a bear. Weight is the enemy. Get the weight down while still taking enough to do the show. I ordered a heavy duty corset rack and will have it shipped right to the site. I plan on selling it after the event at a slight loss.

Then there were the 2 lightweight racks we use for skirts and shirts. I hadn't looked at them since last summer and when I did I found 1 piece of plastic missing, effectively making one rack useless. I went to buy another one at WalMart but it's no longer carried. The new cheapie racks suck. So it's off to the hardware store. Some copper tubing and a few conectors, about 20 minutes in the shop with a saw and a torch and the upgrade is complete. Didn't even set myself on fire. I added about 35 inches to the rack. Larger rack, fewer parts and everything will fit into the luggage.

I yearn for warmth.

Not sure you will care, but your car is currently buried under a snow drift. I'll do what I can to extrcate it for you.

Ed did manage to excavate your van. All y'all sure picked the right time to get out of Dodge! Ed explained our wee blizzard to me thusly, "Rossana left Ohio, and the sun went with her."
