Busting out the camera (phone) to take his picture actually got him in much better spirits and we had an enjoyable enough time. And this was only the beginning.
I didn’t take new pics of the temps but these are from …. A few days after we started the piles. Yes, it’s two different piles since I’m (was) experimenting. I think the experiment is about to take a different course but we shall see.
For the record: I’ve already failed at record keeping as I don’t always record. In my hopeful voice, “maybe next time.”
