Baby Delivery Pictures

I'm trying to upload photos of the delivery. They say a picture's worth a thousand words. I guess blogger doesn't subscribe to that saying 'cause it's not letting me upload anything.

Check back. I'll try again this morning.

Okay...we have photo lift-off...

This is the truck that brought the books from Long Beach where the very same container that's on the back of the truck sat in the bowel of a docked boat for four long days.

This is the forklift I had to rent in order to take the books from the container. That's Jabriel, my former assistant, living out his childhood fantasies.

The pallets being removed. That's Phil on the left. He pitched in at the last minute to give us a hand. Thanks, Phil.

We basically took over the whole street. We got a few dirty looks but no formal complaints.

My turn on the forklift.

Because the books arrived so late, we had to immediately prepare the shipments going to the wholesalers and the Vancouver show. Most of the orders had to ship out via overnight air.

More pallets unloaded.

FedEx Ground Freight arrives to pick up pallets going to Vancouver and Nevada.

Day 2 Julie takes over the reins from Jabriel and we begin our next phase.

Blame it on Mercury, which goes direct today, I think.
