not exactly napoleon's 1815 return from elba
Last night the kitchen cabinets made their triumphant return to 1733 Wabash. Wabash Matt procured a pickup truck and we collected all of the remaining Wabash objects from my mom's basement, aside from the items I've already installed in the Bumble Bee House and the old laundry sink.
