I have had a reader ask if I could recommend someone who fixed parasols. I do not. If you have someone you know that does this type of work, please let me know. I'll pass it on to her as well as post it next month for those of you who may want the information also.
That's it for this newsletter.
Until next time....
With warmest regards,
