"OH BABY" a long time announcer Ken Wilson for the Blues used to say, the Hockey Gods have answered my prayers.
Hard to believe the Blues are going to the play in a Stanley Cup Final after 49 years.
I was a senior in High School when the Blues played Boston in their last Cup appearance in 1970.
Can this finally be our year !!!
Were still here, We bleed Blue !!!
You don't understand how time works. The farther away, the more putts were made. We remember Tiger's misses. Jack hardly missed any, Hogan and Snead were virtual locks. Old Tom Morris never ever missed a putt.
Wasn't the favour to organise (but not pay for) what he thought would be minor repair work and find a deserving family to give it to? He wasn't expecting you to spend your own money or even the amount of time that you are now contemplating.
In your position I would be looking to sell it as-is and then donate the proceeds appropriately, and I would have a clear conscience in doing so.
However, if you're saying you now want to give money and time to this project in his memory, well of course that is a nice thing.
Good luck with it!
