Gosh, sorry to hear about the roof leakage problems, tt and Pingo. Water problems are so hard to trace back to the cause and fix, but I hope you have good luck soon with your contractors.
I understand your frustration, Pingo; all I can say is men will be men and just leave the flashlight in the car sometimes. It's just their nature, I think, to be less proactive than women. Not that makes it less frustrating.
tt, that's too bad re your friend's koi pond and sport fishing heron. I've never heard of a bird fishing for entertainment - so strange!
Had a wonderful lunch with my old friend, as always. Loved hearing his perspective on fatherhood. Thank you for your well wishes on the trip East! DH and I are so looking forward to their party Saturday. Good friends are treasures.
Speaking of that, I'd be happy to have any of you ladies know me in person; it's the nutty lurkers we don't know are reading I'd be afraid of! I live too far away to meet up, though.
My mother just joined a seniors balance/strength building class in her town in Pennsylvania. She LOVES it, and since she's lost almost 20 lbs this year, she is thrilled but at the same time unhappy with the looser skin. She is hoping building some muscle will not only help her keep her balance, but help her shape out, too.
Discretion is the better part of valor.
