weekend retreat

It’s church retreat time once again. Or I should say it was—last weekend. I retreated much of the time, showing up for the meals and the meetings. I even built a bird house. More accurately, I assembled a bird house with pre-cut pieces. Still I felt accomplished, even though my friend Jan held the pieces in place while I zip-zapped in the screws. You might see the picture of me in action, depending on how long you last.

Most of these photos are the camera work of Gary Fawver. In no particular order:
