Our next stop was at the office supply store where Doc got what he needed for his computer and I found a nickel. (Coin #4)
I needed a break, so I created a new display on the mailbox shelf out at the street. A picnic basket with tablecloth, glasses, plates, etc.
A while later Doc carried in an armful of stuff in from the van, then another load, then another. Wow! Neither one of us wanted to begin tomorrow with a van load of Stuff to deal with. So while the TV was playing patriotic music, we marched back and forth from the van. By the end of the three hour National Celebration, we had all the Stuff inside the house (and sprawled in my office as well as below and around Doc’s new TV).
