IF THEY BUILD IT.......
(YOU WILL HELP!)
My brother and sister-in-law are having
a room added to a house they recently
purchased. They are, of course, at the mercy
of the builders who are working on their own

It quickly became clear that these two
men were no match for the weight of all that

Since I couldn't lift I did the next
best thing and snapped a photo.
With two more walls to go I figured
it was time to leave. But I left my brother-in-
law there....just in case!
Hope they can get it done without
me and that al your NEWS is good!
