And virtually gone, too! It's packed into the most full car I have ever seen, waiting to leave in the morning to continue its journey west.

Goodbye, Tabley-table! (Don't you love how creative I get with names?) I will not miss you, even though I'm HELLA PROUD of you! I took a really dark picture of a table I've never seen in real life, some sketchy measurements made by my dear Auntie who probably can't bend down very well anymore, and some really piss-poor building skills plus a pocketful of 'heck yeah I can do this!' and did it :) I hope you enjoy your new home at my Dad's new condo, and nobody every turns you upside down to see the pencil I forgot to erase before staining saying 'Bottom!'
