I read about the making of the lace for the dress... wow, what a labor of dedication. The lacemakers washed their hands every 30 minutes so it would stay clean, & the design incorporated the thistle, shamrock and ??? (oh dear, apologies to Wales & Britain) to represent the 4 countries of Great Britain (or something like that, I'm sure Neil is completely up on that sort of stuff).

I myself spent the morning working on the wind shelter & I've made good progress, in spite of the wind coming up towards the end. Got the ends covered w/shade cloth & the corner braces on. Hurray!

We're supposed to get snow flurries here tomorrow... Blinking the weather has been typical for spring... in the 40's for a week, then dropping to 20º one morning, 58º the next, 37º the next. It's worse than betting on race horses. Rolling my eyes. And still no moisture; even tomorrow it's not supposed to amount to anything more than inconvenience ('cause I hate snow blowing down my neck Angry )

Well, tah, it's time for lunch. I tip my hat to you.
I have little confidence in any enterprise or business or investment that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.
