It's that time of year again. Traffic to the island has slowed down, so it's not quite as busy. The temperature has dropped (it's been in the 70s lately), and today it's sunny with about a 20 mph breeze. Yesterday I commenced cleaning out the shed behind my house. I'll continue with that project again today. With milder temperatures, and fewer interruptions I'm making good progress. If you're on the island take a stroll down Lawton Lane. I've made a "Free Stuff" pile out by the road. Take what you want (wine rack, dryer vent, hot plate, bicycle, etc.).
