|Gallo de estaño (tin rooster, center right) has been charged with watching|
over things here in the jam-packed 5'X10' storage locker.
Our next door neighbor, The Young Man, was a brick—shouldering 60 pound chests on his shoulder, and following my directions carefully. The well-planned maneuver went without a hitch...well, almost. The mattress, on its side, occupied more space—due to gravity—than it did when lying flat. This occasioned a little shuffling.
All these belongings, which were—until yesterday—the comfortable and comforting material of our life, will be stored in this anonymous steel locker for the next 12 months. We hope it all bides the time well.
