Hi there Occie,

Thanks for your invite to Costa Rica.

Never been there but according to your blog it’s a great place.

Been to Aruba twice and enjoyed the condo my son-in-law has in an closed community there.

I’m sure you have many skills and we all find out that challenges always give us new ideas.

Keep up your good work.

God bless you and have a great year.

HI Jim,

Thanks for your comments on the chair.
My wife says when she picked the fabric it was on sale and she ended paying $5.The new foam coat a few dollars, too
A friend who has an identical chair had to pay $400 for refinishing it.

We did well. (not always )
Have a great day!

Thanks for your generous comment.
With the extra upholstery, she did a chair and a sewing machine bench.

Have a great day!

All three of you did a good job!
I see the dog was helping to stay relaxed.

Hi there Mafe,

Thanks for your comment.

Yes, it was a team effort and the dog enjoyed being
around for attention and the photo.

I trust you are physically feeling better and able to get involved using your skills.

May God bless you and give you His healing power.

in my prayers.
