    The one error represents many hours and rounds of perfection. Mend well and have a good holiday.

      Perfection? No. We are lucky more often than perfect. It takes dozens, maybe hundreds or thousands, of instances of imperfection before luck runs out. Strive for perfection; learn from imperfection.
