I just went through my closet. I have a pile of skirts. pants and dresses that I wore in April and May that no longer fit BUT might be able to alter with the help of a friend who is a great seamstress. I can't afford new clothes! Perhaps I should beg for a make over on Marilyn or Steve and Chris...

Yes, you should. I figure that then you will have a great financial situation and won't need it.

Wow! Five pounds. I am so proud of you. If I had a box of gold stars, they would all be on your forehead right now. Great job!

I had fence on the two sides of my backyard, but no fence at the back. I finally got around to doing something about that. I tried to find a handyman, but no one called back. I phoned the stores that sell fence lumber. They wanted ~$1,100. The fence is only 16' long.

A friend of mine posted that she is looking for work. She mentioned that she is good at renos, so I asked if she could build a fence. Yes, she can. She finished it today. It's cedar. The one I got the estimate on was treated wood. This is what it looks like:



I am a happy camper.
