Cheap date? You and me both, Stilly. I confess to having once spent a birthday cash card on a lamp shade and a shed-load of LED bulbs.

Thumping and banging from the garden indicate that Steve is shingling the roof of the woodshed. Similar noises from up and down the street indicate that the whole neighbourhood is having a home-improvement orgy: a snazzy garden shed -- almost a bunkie -- next door, kitchen cabinets across from us, a new roof at the corner, drainage tile and brick siding around by the mailboxes, and plenty more similar projects hither and yon. Among other things, this tells me that Stratford, or at least our small corner of it, is not suffering too much from the economic effects of the pandemic.
