canoe, part 13: getting the canoe out of the living room through the window!

Its not often that a canoe gets lowered out of a second floor window in the middle of the street, and it did attract quite a crowd. We made a pancake torte and bought drinks and invited as many people as we could for this enterprise. Secured with four ropes the canoe was lowered to the ground. We had three people upstairs, myself in the first floor window trying to keep the canoe of the wall, and a bunch of people standing on the street to receive it…everything was over in a bout five minutes. Enough time for a fully loaded bus to make a short stop because the bus driver needed to see what was going on…
