Amazing what a little paint can do! There are a few boards on the west side that are now literally held together with paint molecules.. the dry rot being very real and very spongy. My only worries are the BIG olive tree limbs that loom over the little studio. I'd love to have the tree guys come prune them back but I am still recovering from the bill from last fall's Whole Day of Pruning.
Recently there was a little Sunday afternoon gathering here, in which old friends met new friends, books were exchanged, wine was consumed and much laughter was heard. I should do this once a month.
