|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.
We're supposed to get snow flurries here tomorrow... the weather has been typical for spring... in the 40's for a week, then dropping to 20Âº one morning, 58Âº the next, 37Âº the next. It's worse than betting on race horses. 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 )
Well, tah, it's time for lunch.
I have little confidence in any enterprise or business or investment that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.
