I am grateful for time spent with Farley setting up the weaving loom I got for him on his birthday. I saw in a classified ad. It was a bit of a shot in the dark, but I thought he might like it. I was relieved to hear him say he wanted me to help him set it up, and he seemed to enjoy using it.

I am grateful for family fun night part 2, my pick: we rejoggered our projector and screen to work better with an earlier reposition of the couch, and then screened The Walk, about the guy who did the unsanctioned tightrope walk between the towers of the World Trade Center in New York in the 70s. It was a good story.
