I did managed to finish a pair of socks for Mike so at least something tangible got done.
***As an aside ...
Why is it that people distrust experts? Why do they not want to believe that we are all on the same side? And why won't they believe me when I say that we have more serious problems then the relatively stable toxic waste beneath our school? Or am I being naive in believing the experts and everyone else is right?
