The crate has been in port since Sept 20, but had to sit until all the customs/forms cleared. Praise God for the perfect delivery date for us – Sat at 10 am. All 40 + boxes (mostly small boxes) arrived intact; all arrived safely except for one item that was laying loose (a plastic round tube full of blank cd/dvd’s). About 4 hours later, the delivery man brought it to our door – so nothing missing! It’s been nearly 2 full days of unpacking, rearranging, and putting things away – but we are almost done. Much of the stuff was food that we cannot get here (if we can find, it is triple the cost). We cleaned out the pantry and re-did it . We still need to put up lots of books. Jackie got the new printer set up and is still fiddling w/the turntable. He got the new phone hooked up; can’t wait for someone from the US to phone our packet 8 number so we will be able to hear how the sound of the ring is different from the TW house phone.
