This week's theme is Building. Here is mine from Whose Body? by Dorothy L Sayers (p. 61):

My mother--most energetic, self-sacrificin' sort of woman, don't you see, is thinkin' of gettin' up a sort of charity bazaar down at Denver this winter, in aid of the church roof, y'know. Very sad case, Mr. Milligan--fine old antique--early English windows and decorated angel roof, and all that--all tumblin' to pieces, rain pourin' in and so on--vicar catchin' rheumatism at early service, owin' to the draught blowin' in over the altar--you know the sort of thing.
