house update-Fs 11-23
Elaine & Anne-making RV
on a young lady owns dry
cleaners on Norte.
Yesterday saw our "metal man" Luis, with making the legs to our table at his shop, heating 2-1/2' steel roll stock. into a sweeping arc for the legs, in a charcoal blacksmith forge- exactly out of "Gunsmoke" scene! Amazing. red hot coals with the rolled stock being forged. I told him he could join the boilermakers union here in Dolores! Tomorrow he starts on the chairs. By next week we may have a dining room table & chairs.
Here is just 2, there are probably 100 almost along Jose Alfredo Jimenez(Pottery row). small to huge pottery selection. People come from all over Mexico to buy here, many wholesale, to sell at there own stores around Mexico.
We have been trying to get house finished, at least livable, so we can feel comfortable. Worked on patio roof Mon & Tuesday. Had help. Got 80% done.
So we are feeling better, and can operate more efficiently than having to study off the sofa, bed etc.
Elaine had her 1st talk here in Dolores, and did splendidly, thought I was at a demo at Circuit or Dist Conv.( is my pride showing too much?) Other new sister, Tabitha Portell had her 1st talk also, so we had 2 applause from the audience. She did well too. Her husband Mike was subbing for bro reed, who is back in states for a bit, so he had to counsel his wife, he handled it well.
All for now.
