Joy and Ruby are still in Manila.
I missed Emie's party for the Fiesta (San Lorenzo) because of a stomach flu, but am better now.
We are still waiting for the builders to finish Lolo's grave gazebo but the pipes holding up the roof were rusty and looked terrible, so I had our part time handyman Ferdie paint them white. He is now fixing the rotting ceiling in our kitchen and bathroom (where the roof leaked badly the ceiling had deteriorated). This should have been done last year, but he was working in Manila and I didn't have my pension or money for such things.
