Ahhhh Yes...... I know it well. When I slipped into
early retirement 2 years ago, I thought it would be nice to
get back into restoration. However, it took about 24 hours
for the word to get out, and a number of warm hands were on
my shoulder, "... Do you think you could help us with......!".
In the twinkling of an eye, I had another full time job on my hands
what with all these volunteer activities. I recently bit the
bullet and told these folks "...enough is enough....". Tough
to do when the cause is worthy, the results satisfying, and well
appreciated by all.
Good luck Robin. Keep up the good work. It is indeed very
