50 States, Day 265

  Mulberry, Standing Down

"Faith is love taking the form of aspiration."
~William Ellery Channing



With a carport and some time, we cleaned out the bike and trailer, sorted through things, and hauled junk- er, stuff- to the thrift shop, the Post Office, and the garbage. Surprise, there wasn't that too much of anything, probably because there isn't much room in the first place! 

Since we didn't have time before the launch, today I took the time to inventory our belongings. So for your edification, I present our:

THE VAULT

Passports and cash, cleverly hidden

That's about it! Tomorrow we say goodbye to the condo (sniff) and hit the road once again, headed toward Orlando and the tourist traps associated with it. 

And remember: Next time you walk into your laundry room to do the clothes, thank God it's not a coin op down the street. We sure have appreciated it!

And a big 'Thank you!' to Phill and Amy Thorleifson for hooking us up with the condos, both before and after the cruise. What a treat.  

See ya!

Regarding that "Featherlight sewing machine"... that's NOT what Libby calls it. She told me that thing weighs a ton and, if she had her weigh, um... way, it would be the first thing to go... along with the trailer, of course!

Libby's correct. 'Featherweight' in the 50s or 60s when it was made, meant lighter grade steel. Ethyl is a beast. Oops. I didn't say that!
