We moved the newspaper office on a recent Saturday, on the day coincidentally that I marked my 59th birthday. 

It was a day of trying not to strain my back, and doing what I can to assist men much stronger and younger than me to move desks, filing cabinets, and all the other furnishings — in time for us to open in our new location the following Monday morning.
