A month ago we welcomed Lulu the wonder dog to our old, falling-apart home, with the hopes that her person, Dappa John, could remedy some of its ills.
Four weeks, fully three of them rainy, and somehow he managed to pull off a string of miracles.
Insulated foundation, revised landscaping and a side porch that makes the rest of the house look shabby.
Not to mention felling a few trees, getting in some firewood and even measuring for windows ... when we get around to that.
A thank-you doesn't seem enough.
But here it is: A start -- Thanks, Dappa John.
And thanks, Lulu ...
We'd almost forgotten how nice it was to have a pre-lick cycle for the dishwasher.
