Oh hun, how sweet of you to offer help! (Thank you and *hugs*)
This Shed family are a group of caring souls...the people who go out of their way to help anyone and everyone...and usually end up getting left alone

"down and out" people seem to have empathy or compassion and it's so sad that we can't do much to help each other (especially when we're all in
Your kind message and offer made me both smile and cry.
