Brightening a dreary day
After a glorious weekend of sunshine and warm temperatures, the gang returned to work today in a cold, windy drizzle that eventually turned to out and out rain. Not a great start to the week you'd think but then the nicest thing happened. Having read about a kindly gentleman who's been sending Tim Horton's finest to the gang rebuilding the schooner Bluenose II - something we all thought was pretty cool - Dory Plug rather brazenly posted on Facebook that since we are building two schooners, as well as a sailing dory for the Tim Horton's Children's Camp, we should at least get a few timbits. Well, it turns out this man is a Facebook friend of The Dory Shop and before lunch today a taxi arrives with hot coffee and donuts for our damp and grateful gang. Thank you David Carnes for your kindness. It made for a bright spot in an otherwise dreary day!
