I thought I'd share this historical moment with you - right now...as I'm typing this...
the preservation specialists (aka packing dudes) are taking down the lovely portrait of Albert Russell Mann.
The Mann that has glared at me from high up on the wall for a little over a year, has come down.
He is being carefully wrapped in some sort of waxy paper and put in a "Caution! Fragile" box.
The Mann has left the Mann.
A moment of silence, please...
