It seems the driver of the Penske truck had a moment of stress-induced zealous threatenings, and I believed him! Here is his unpublished comment on the previous post:
"The dining room table is moving. Only two desks are being sold. Two bicycles are being sold. So it isn't as bad as the article made it sound."
The lovely oak table goes with us! :) Three of the desks will be dismantled and squeezed in. :) And two of the bikes will be sold, however I was not even counting one of those.
My editor checks my posts carefully, and he is always faithful to let me know when I have misrepresented him or made factual errors. What would I do without a faithful editor? Lie, probably. I didn't mean to.
