As a matter a fact, we are raising the roof, though everyone is not saying "hey-yeah"... [May. 21st, 2004|03:30 pm]
Just me.
At this very moment, roofers are reroofing my garage. Oh the excitement! I'm sitting at my computer (day off) watching them work. As you might guess, my elderly neighbor Mr. Belonging-to-Wilson had to go outside and attempt to engage the roofers in conversation as they threw old shingles down in his general direction. I couldn't hear what he said, (and with the scraping and hammering, I doubt they could either), but I'm betting it was a variation on "you need a bigger hammer" or "that's a pretty big job, huh", or even "so.....putting on a new roof?"

This week, I've now spent something like $1300 on roof repair and also getting a major dent removed from my car. Next week, I want to treat myself to something fuzzy, shiny, gadgety, or otherwise altogether impractical since this week has been all about doing the responsible things.

I still laugh every single time you refer to the Belonging-to-Wilsons.
