AN OLD FLOOR PATCH
Above is an old floor section which resides in a second floor bedroom of an almost two hundred year old log house. Within this section you will notice a tight fitting square patch that has aged similar to the original floor.
The elderly owner told me that the patch has been there as long as he can remember -- his home has always been in his family since it was built.
I took the photo of the old patch because it reminded me of the saying, " a stitch in time saves nine." The saying means with a little effort up front to fix a problem -- one can prevent problems down the road.
I feel life is like that.
