what weighs 311 pounds?

and takes two men to maneuver it through your door?

well that would be Phil's computer desk and new "office" all in one!  - so last Sunday I flew to Florida because the delivery of this last large piece of furniture for our condo in Florida was supposed to take place on March 26th- BEFORE we returned to Chicago on April 1st... but.....

the item wasn't shipped until April 5th and so I headed back to Florida on a cheap SW ticket and picked up a Priceline car and drove to meet the arriving piece- and yes it was manhandled in  to the house by two guys who knew what they were doing-

and here are some photos- from the website - because the desk is sitting alone in an otherwise empty room with a high ceiling and you really don't get the sense of how "full office-like" it is from my photos of the empty desk- LOL

so the main reason we chose this desk was because it has the fold down door that works as a return - extra space for working.... or laying out papers for your favorite cat to sit on (LOL)

you can kind of see on the photo that the key board drawer has a double pull out so the keyboard can also be covered up and used as a work surface (say for instance if you had TWO cats who wanted to help you with your work! )
so anyway- that is what I was doing in Florida for the last two days- home late last night so I could be here in time for several upcoming events- including Goosefoot dinner tonight and a Remy Bumppo play tomorrow night and... then off to NYC and Paris... so stay tuned
and just for the record - here are my own photos - perhaps not so artfully posed but with much better resolution-
fully closed:

fully opened:

keyboard drawer covered gives extra writing or work surface:

return up:

return down for additional work surface:

and finally- photos of some helpful cats who can assist with paperwork!

oh and by the way did I mention it was beautiful blue sky and warm in Florida and that I came home to cold and rainy and dreary.... thereby fully reinforcing the decision to buy a place so we weren't limited to only the seasonal rental at high season rates!
