As most of our regulars know, Don & I are on the road on Tuesdays and Saturdays doing our house calls. (Yes, you are correct, we do work 7 days a week during the busy season!) This week we had to split up in order to get everything done. Don had back-to-back record calls and I had a pick up in Portsmouth that filled my van with a collection of English antiques including a beautiful oak corner cabinet; a marble top commode with tile back splash; a tall filing cabinet with shelves, drawers, and a pull-down tambour cover; as well as a Louisiana drop-front writing desk and a carved oak coal hod. We managed to squeeze a couple of pieces in the back barn but the rest had to go into the storage barn (which, despite an early summer purge, is filling up fast). As has been the case since he graduated from college, I was fortunate to have the company of my fabulous assistant, Beau Pingree. Smart, handsome, and all muscle!
