It is 4:06 AM. It is wet outside, most likely from heavy fog which has now cleared. Today is a workday with early dismissal but very few of my customers are going to want to work and so hopefully I’ll only need to respond to one or two e-mails. As usual time has quickly slipped…… Continue reading Journal Entry – 11.23.2016
Yesterday I spend a number of hours applying a finishing coat to the new fence. This offered a lot of time to think and I thought I’d write a few down here.
