Focker’s day began with a little surprise from Little Rock. We knew we were expecting a Caterpillar forklift. What we didn’t know was that Jan had asked Tom at Swift Forklift Services to paint the Cat in Kendra’s favorite color: pink.
“In all my twenty years in the business,” Tom said, “nobody has ever asked for a pink forklift.”
We immediately dubbed the new pink Cat “Kitty” and ran her off to the warehouse for a test spin.
Kitty quickly proved herself to be more maneuverable than our old friend Clark the Focklift. But, when Kitty balked and whined at the prospect of picking up a triple-stacked pallet of Alpo, Kendra pronounced her to be a “cranky little bitch that was acting her nails had just been painted.” (Which, in fact, they had.)
Meanwhile, back at the ranch….
Doc and Leroy prepared for the inaugural footer. And then, behold. It was poured.
Giddy with excitement that construction had finally begun, everybody huddled up in the single patch of shade on the building site and commenced the ritual consumption of Budweiser, Crown Royal and Cabernet Sauvignon.
