What they say about travel ("he travels the fastest who travels alone") is just as true of putting all those pieces together, even when the chart is clear, the pieces are all there, the slots and bolt-holes are aligned, and the tool furnished is useful. Unless the article being assembled is a heavy piece of furniture that requires a second person to be there to hold something in place, I want not a soul around while I'm at work of this sort. Even when a second person is required, that person should follow instructions exactly and say nothing at all. Just ahead of the frost, the nesting plant stands were ready. They are sturdy and handsome and useful, and I was pleased to be able to deal with them by myself. That's what makes a speedy assembler and a happy one.
