"Thousands of a candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared." Buddha

Once again, we had two sites in the morning that joined together for the afternoon. The new site yesterday was putting a Ondura roof on a porch in Glen Rogers for a lady we met when we first came into the county 13 years ago. Luckily the Ondura could be put on right over the old rolled roofing roof, so the site was complete by lunch. The other group which they joined in the afternoon was the ramp site in Ravencliffe that was started yesterday. After a lot of sweat and hard work, the ramp was complete by the end of the day. After the site was complete, a car load of people headed up into Glen Rogers to visit another long time friend of the PVs who is quite the story teller. It turns out that the ramp we built was for his sister, who would have known.

Dinner tonight we were treated to a Mexican feast, make your own taco/burrito's with homemade grilled corn salsa. For dessert we had dump cake direct from the PV Cookbook. Yummy, yummy.

Reflection tonight we focused on the idea of a "bucket list." Not our own bucket list, but what our bucket list would be for the area down here. It was good to hear everyone's idea's of how they would help make the lives of the people here a little easier.
