So, I thought my buddy was leaving town in a few weeks and we had a few more beers to drink together. He is actually leaving on Sunday. Like in 4 days. No one checked with me on this to see how I felt about it. I’m not ready yet. I’m joking but it was a shock. But I am truly happy for him and the new chapter in his life. The going away party that I’m planning for this Friday is happening just in time. But moving forward, I am at a loss for who I’m going to hang out with. This was my everyday “hang out and drink a beer with” buddy for the last 6 years.
And now, it’s all about the Big Green Egg. If you don’t know what this is, it’s a big ceramic BBQ grill that is shaped like an Egg. It weighs almost 200lbs. And even though, that’s a LOT less than I weigh, it’s still quite heavy. So, since my buddy is giving me his big green egg, the challenge is getting it down 4 flights of stairs. The Egg is on his rooftop patio. So, even though they brought it up 4 flights of stairs to get it up there, I was thinking it would be much easier to get it down using as crane. Yesterday, I found a crane company that is willing to do it. So, now I just have to coordinate the date and time that would be least disruptive to the neighbors and get it done. But the good news is now, I have a “Crane” guy!
