We were looking to repair damage done to the apartment from an upstairs water leak, and the first estimate was too high. Putting our trust in the Lord, we answered a newspaper ad for a handyman, and fortunately he was also registered to clean up mold. Things are proceeding at a regular pace.
We are so dependent on people being honest that we don’t even notice, most people are. Little do we appreciate the progress we have made in this as a civilization, judging from Dickens’ characters.
Rocky, the handyman, struck me as a hard working man, who had helped raise his brothers in a large family. He wasn’t the oldest, but had assumed that responsible position.
