Cabin fever


This is a picture of Davy (on the right), when he spent 6 weeks helping his friend Jack to extend his home. This is how it looks now.


He had so much fun doing it. Davy had been in construction all his life and when he heard that Jack was going to renovate his house he was desperated to help out. We had been friends with Jack & Betsy since 1973 and he wanted to repay Jack for all the help he had given him in the early days of his sobriety, mainly helping him to see things rationally because he was a crazy man, while Betsy had helped me learn how to deal our mad existence.
Today the weather has been too bad to do anything much but lunch. This evening Jack & Betsy's friends Chuck and Sue are driving up from Oregon to spend a couple of days here which will be nice. They are really good people and Chuck was very fond of Davy.
