Great big, sixteen wheel trucks have been delivering packages to Mouse House for over two decades. One wouldn't think I'd be excited to see one pull up yesterday, but I was more than anxious! This one wasn't bringing picture frame moulding or even a new piece of equipment. It was bringing the 10' x 10' Pro Panel "Flex" booth plus a fancy lighting system. I grabbed my camera!
It took the delivery guy several minutes to load the four big, flat boxes onto a fancy, wide pull cart. The entire contraption was lowered to street level on a rear mounted, hydraulic lift. He wheeled the boxes across Park Street ...
... almost to our front door. Of course, there is no forklift-like elevator for the four steps onto the porch. I have no idea how he thought that small hand-cart was going to be used! Together, he and I picked up the boxes ...
... and pulled them inside the front door. Right in the middle of the foyer! These boxes could absolutely NOT remain in this place. Something had to happen ... and I was DYING to see my new booth!

This blog post has been updated from our hotel room in Birmingham, England. Steve was stunned with pride and excitement after the Wednesday matinee performance ... featuring OUR SON THE PRINCE and his beautiful partner Maureya Lebowitz. Mathias posted the photo on Facebook. At the time of this update, I've got just a few more hours until I witness this show ... nail biting time!
