Oh, and I did not get to the store for the binding material during the after Thanksgiving sale because, as I reasoned, the crowds would be too plentiful, the selection would be less so, and I am not at the point where I need it 'right now' - so why rush? Why stand in the mayhem? Why do that to myself when I could happily use the daylight to do what really needed doing................which it turned out I needed to go to the store to find something anyway in order to get it done!
Grrrrr [mumble mumble] Bah, shoot, darn-it-all!!!
Yes, I still believe I will have the top completed by the ninth. Let's see if my prediction can hold water.
