Greetings, Readers! This is going to be a short issue, on account of
I'm ground-down by all this here manual labour I've been doing. I can
remember when I was young and could do manual labour alla time. Now,
it like to near kills me. Ah well, being a home owner means yer gotta
do a certain amount of maintenance, and if you put it off long enough
it's a large amount of maintenance, and if yer kinda broke, you just
have to do it yerself. I do think I'm going to spend the coming winter
using the ol' excercise machine to get into a bit better shape for the
finishing-up of the maintenance next spring. Yep. Yep. You betcha.
So, anyway, like I said before, short issue this time, and I've a good
bunch of articles, letters, and stuff that came in this week for next
time. Thank You! to all our Contributors (y'all are Supporters too!).
