Kindred spirits...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I smiled earlobe to earlobe as I read through your list of well-earned physical maladies, and the pride with which you register them. Then, rebuilding/restoring a rundown old house; the gleeful gardener in you; your love of power tools, hand tools and makeshift tools; all this juxtaposed with knitting bunnies! Yes, your post certainly lightened my load today; I extend you a heartfelt, kinship-felt smile!

If you decide to send photos, I would be happy to include them with your post. If you do send pics, in order to avoid an error message, I suggest re-sizing the snaps to no more than 800 X 600 pixels.

Thank you for sharing your delightful "achievements."
