Hey Bishop denizens. Mr E and I are hauling up our final load from LA for our permanent move to Bishop. We are running a day late, so we lost our physically-able helper on the un-load end. I have to stay behind to prep our house so E is stuck on the receiving end with my dad (who can't lift anything) and not much other help. There's some items that need more than one person to handle, so he could really use a hand if anyone is free around noon tomorrow (Sunday).

Thanks in advance

Alright folks, change of plan. We're holding off unloading the trailer until I can get up there on Tues. Still could use a hand but the time is less pressing.

Thanks everyone

Time is never pressing in Bishop. Hell, I haven't cut the grass in a month.

Years ago I posted a similar message to FaceBook. By the next day I'd noticed that almost 20 people had unfriended me

This is why Bishop needs a Home Depot.

Where's FishFinder? That dude has helped me out if a pickle so many times it's ridiculous. Ironically, when I moved from bishop he helped me pack. Regardless I would if I could and good luck. Hopefully will run into you out there sometime.

You can find some reliable laborers throwing-up in the alley behind McMurry's nightly.

We are running SO late - Epic.

Thanks to everyone who is helping! Ed & Glo, Tim Steele, Vicki Green, Blob, Tom, Tai, Fishfinder, Karine and all our future helpers for this coming Wednesday (nudge, nudge)...pump up the jam.

Seems like a lot of people for that trailer. Is it a union call?

Aug 10, 2014 - 11:00pm PT
Pretty much. That second story stuff requires protocol.

Aug 11, 2014 - 12:16am PT
Tell them to keep their union gloves off (union gloves = hands in the pockets)
