Finally…the rain has let up and I can reach Sparta without waders. Although my work on the floors has continued, it has been sluggish due in large part to the foul weather. It has been a bit demoralizing and dampening of spirit. But, alas, with impeccable timing my daughter sent me a lovely, hand-crafted wallet as a gift. It depicts a restored Spartan trailer in a bucolic setting and the words “Keep your eyes on the prize”. Talk about a shot in the arm! Let’s get back to work and let the sun shine in. Thanks, Leslie.
