Default grazie per i complimenti/auguri, James, but...

I'm having sleepless nights gnawing my fingernails down to the wrist while I wait for news on my pallet with oven materials. The supplier decided to send it by road to a rail station near me, where a forklift would be needed to unload it.

Being a bit paranoid, I drove up to the station Monday (120 km round trip) to learn that for many years they've been a pure passenger rail stop, without any freight handling facilities!

Frantic phone calls and e-mail exchanges trying to re-route/intercept the truckie, hoping to direct him to a brick depot 30 km north from me - but total silence since yesterday afternoon. I used the energy created by my frustration and anger to fell a largish eucalypt (122 cm girth) near the oven site, managing to drop it just clear of any and all nearby fruit trees...

Scrivo in Inglese perché il mio Italiano è quasi non-esistente!

Ciao,

Carioca
