When you get to be in the 55+ club as (as all the finest Drinking Men are) it is very common to not only deal with disappointment, but to expect it. So you can imagine my surprise when the planned Garage work:
actually turned into reality. What a strange and satisfying feeling when what you planned actually comes to fruition. Of course when you are younger you always assume things are going to work out – my kids are almost never disappointed because their parents are here to protect them. But for us old duffers it is almost a new experience. And I love it!
