Here's a late note on one of this summer's projects. We got a new roof on our giant porch, courtesy of son Casey Nelson and some hard work. It turned out to be an easier project than I had feared, and it gave me and Casey a chance to connect over working side by side for a while. We also got a chance to cruise around town looking for stuff to gather from the city-wide cleanup (mostly bikes) and to knock down Grandma Rose's rickety shed in the back yard, helped by my brother Jim. It was an excellent visit and I look forward to the next one.
