Let’s start the work week with some of your good news.
For my part, I had a supportive message from a bishop. Meant a lot. I managed to make some repairs to a spar and other components of an old wooden deck umbrella, with wood-glue and clamps. I need to do a lot of stitching, repairing and cleaning of the canvass, as the thread of its seams is rotting away. I reconstructed its pulley hoisting/lowering system with 550 paracord. BTW… you can make great rosaries from paracord. Also, I saw a family of Flickers, and I don’t mean the photo service. I posted on that elsewhere.
