She helped me light the pilot light on my water heater. I followed the instructions and she looked in the little window and saw the lit pilot - which I had not seen. I don't know what it is with me but I often cannot see things like this. So the water heater is working! I am excited. I folded some clean clothes and in a few minutes I will take my first shower. Using my travel stash of shampoo and soaps because I don't have the stuff from my former bathroom yet. In my morning forays I did make it to my storage buildings and grabbed a small pile of boxes and other stuff. I felt a little disheartened when I looked at all the STUFF in there but I think I can make it all work or go away.
Word is that Paul came on the scene a few days or so ago and drove into the driveway and sat there in his truck for a while. hmmm. Wonder what that means. Matt, the manager, said Paul came by and looked through the house when it was open, when it was still being worked on, too. I have sent him emails and I will try his phone, but the last time I tried it I got someone else's message. It may not be his number any more.
No word about Stretch.
