Mike in DC: All set in DC!

Mike in DC: My mom LOVED Pete Fountain, mda. πŸ™‚

Mike in DC: Is it my speakers or does this Chan have a southern accent?

Matt1: South China?

Matt1: Hello Louise!

Mike in DC: Yes, Matt. TYSM

Louise: Well hello gang! Lots of folks here early.

marcycloud: I’ll be running off again in a few. Just wanted to say Hi!

Mike in DC: Hi Louise.

Rush2: Well…we’ve been scammed by a moving broker for a bit iof cash, but aside from that, life is great!

mda19083: great turnout tonight

Matt1: Thnx for stopping in MC!

Louise: Sounds bad Rush

Rush2: Yes…this many at the radio show is wonderful!

Mike in DC: ooof…are you still “in transit” Rush?

Rush2: Not fun, I agree.

Matt1: Ugh, sorry Rush

Rush2: Yes, Mike…we will be moving.

Louise: Nice company while I eat my salad

Rush2: Just beware, everyone!

Rush2: Do more homework than I did.

Rush2: I guess I am a bit too trusting.

mda19083: sorry to hear rush

Mike in DC: caveat emptor…sorry to hear, Rush.

marcycloud: whats a moving broker?

sarabell2: Happens to us all, Rush. Sorry

Rush2: Well, you guys make life’s bumps less bad, to say the least!

Rush2: Still recovering from the trip!

sarabell2: Our consumer guru here in Atlanta said none of them are good.

Rush2: The guru is right!

Rush2: There gores a bunch of our COVID money!

Louise: We’ve had some good movers but they cost more if they are insured.

Rush2: “Easy come…easy blow!”

sarabell2: We always looked like the Beverly Hillbillies moving

Matt1: Our mover went to grade school with our Realtor and still friends, so..

Mike in DC: My moves involved friends, a U-Haul and beer…but I don’t know if that would work at my age now

Rush2: Well, I weas on the phone with a legitimate mover who was supposedly the one that the broker was sending me to, and they might just get our business afterall!

Mike in DC: Hopefully there will be a happy ending, Rush

Rush2: Yes, Matt! I wish our move could be done similarly!

Louise: Moving is so stressful so the additional stress sounds tough, Rush

Rush2: But 2,000 miles of pizza and beer would be unsustainable!

Matt1: I wish you luck…..Not the added stress needed during an upcoming move

Matt1: CC words of wisdom!

Rush2: Thank you….but, let’s let Mr. Can brighten our evening! Enough dark clouds!

Rush2: Chan

Louise: Chan Can!

Matt1: THE END
