but they're not ready to start. full renovation. a member of harkey housing committee tells me the boat because it needs to jousting at some whistler. there is no sense in doing it now because the war is still going on. most human hockey is being shelled every day again. and if, for example, we were to replace the glass on the windows, we could even humpy born and attack jesus joke running the bulletin. i'm all during your with reduce. but for ego or saddle harshly, even basic repairs are a sign of hope. he invites us to his home, after weeks living in the metro station he and his wife all in our in need to be bag. even though they have no windows, all running water. with me as we don't know what will happen in the winter, and we hope there'll be some heating or we have to put more plastic in the windows . nothing eager says he's lucky. he's still being paid. as a professional football coach, he proudly shows as tedious. nobody moves which
