Lies, lies and viscious rumors. It was only the loft of the Garage, and the idea was to create a new, exciting space for the Oracle Museum, complete with webcams.

I had planned the Miracle Master Class Teambuilding Exercise as follows:

  1. On Sunday evening we would (slowly!) move the stuff from the loft downstairs and stack it carefully.
  2. On Monday evening we would put in the new flooring.
  3. On Tuesday evening we would put the stacked stuff back up on the loft.

As it turned out, it ended up a bit different from the original plan:

  1. On Sunday it took the Oakies about 42 minutes to remove everything from the loft. Most of it was thrown out, and Peter Gram even had to rent a new trailer for the junk.
  2. Lex and Carel-Jan and Gary Goodman and James Morle and Jon (from Miracle Iceland) were un-stopable and made 80% of the flooring on Sunday.
  3. On Monday Lex got the bright idea of doing some heavy changes to the whole construction of the Garage. Which he and Carel-Jan and helpers then did.
  4. On Tuesday evening nobody did anything except participate in the Gala Dinner and visit the famous hotdog stand Bjarne's Poelser.
  5. I don't know when the stuff is going up there again. I'm afraid.


PS: The Oakies rock. Nothing beats having 18 of them in your house.
