Crazy day. Took care of little things, read a few pages. Spoke to my uncle. His wife passed last night around 10:00 pm. Hardly knew what to say.

Bricklayers came and finished the wall in the cottage. Looks great. Now it's the window, a bit of trim, and we're in business.

Had the truck towed to the shop. Battery's dead or worse. Either way, don't figure to get out of it cheap.

Pulled the new desk apart and reassembled it. Not sure it was worth the effort, but there you go. Frame's ready.

Some new work came in. Happy for that. Mom coming tomorrow for an overnight on her way to Sioux City.
