Re: e-Gads!

Donna -
Has this man weeded his own garden railroad yet?  Does he realize that area
needs a huge amount of attention with the event coming up next year? (I
think that's what you said.)
I understand him wanting to be helpful.  I don't understand him wanting to
dig and haul rocks in his condition.
And how does one move a 'water' feature like that?  doesn't it need plumbing
lines? Or is it self contained?
Since he has plenty of time at home and wants to be useful, helpful, why not
suggest that when he has one of these wonderful ideas, he could write it
down and run it past you first, to then be done the next day?  It may delay
his thoughtful deeds by one day, but if he writes down ideas every day for
every next day, he will only have his activities delayed by that first day.
Unless, of course, you say no.
