Well, I use a little literary license in the title. The actual item I have been waiting to be moved the short 300 miles from Ft. Worth to Lubbock, is actually a painting of a telephone pole. A painting just large enough not to fit in any standard car or SUV and painted with thick acrylic paint that cant be rolled or removed from the frame without damage. Each trip I took to Ft Worth I would check on my painting, that was mine, FOR FREE, as long as I shipped it. Three years of asking truck drivers, family, and friends I was still no closer to having my pole painting in Lubbock on my own wall. Three years go by and someone mentions USHIP.com.  U-WHO I say?? Which brings me to the end of the story. A few short weeks later and a few dollars I have a magnificent telephone pole hanging on my wall. NOW, I need to explore why I have a fascination with Poles?? Or maybe I should leave that question forever unanswered.
