Truck, truck, truck....

that's right...

at about 3:50 PM an 18 wheeler snuck down our road and a courageous
driver offered to do a push-pull of the palletfull of Crystal Dragon
from the road to as close to the house as we could get...

but, this is mud season in Maine... which means we got the pallet off the liftgate and about two inches
beyond before his pallet-cart sank into the driveway. He made a quick recover and managed not to lose the cart the way we'd lost a UPS truck some years back....

We thanked him very much, signed for the books, and waved him away
into the gathering cool evening...

I went to Plan B, and offloaded the books into the back of the
Subaru, 1/3 of a pallet load at a time, and backed it to the edge of
the deck.

I expect the driveway may recover by next year's delivery...

Now, there's a poll posted on Rolanni's Live Journal
bearing on the question of *where* we should sign the book...
