Many thanks to Kariflower (who came two weeks in a row to help), ren_flora, cmccurry (and aemccurry who would've come but had to work), hueffmea and his wife (who babysat for us), my Dad, and gkaczns. gkaczsns gets an especial shout-out, because she could have been watching her fiance perform at the MD Ren Faire but volunteered to lift heavy objects instead. Huzzah!
Edit: BTW, the title's supposed to be a riff on the old "real friends help you move bodies" joke. Not sayin' those who couldn't/wouldn't make it aren't real friends. :)
