High Fiber—At Last! Part I

Wow! What a week! I had hoped to get the loom put together, but it was too busy. I did get all the heddles loaded onto the rods in the shafts.

He said he had been caught as being overweight in Brigham City (the van, not the driver) at the weigh station and had to wait for…

High Fiber—Learning To Bend

Our guest bed and mattress arrived at Jim’s on Monday. The nice gentleman from FedEx brought the bed up to the house and put the mattress into the back of the car. When Jim came home from his trip, we put the bed into the pickup, drove to the house and unloaded both boxes. …
