It's Wednesday already!!

Monday evening Ivan and I finished the tarpaper and roof edging. Chuck showed up and we had a couple and BS'ed for a while. We decided to start shingles on Tuesday evening. Ivan and Chuck got here around 3:00 and we got about 2/3 of the West side of the roof done. Enough for one night.

There are warnings out for tonight through tomorrow night for intense storms. Figures. Peg and I got most of the wall plywood on tonight, don't know if the added structural effect of the plywood will overcome the wind-catching aspect of it. Before the roof was just one big kite, now it's a big box kite..... Good grief, anyway.

Going to Marinette this weekend for the house warming (a.k.a. big party)at Yram's. Should be a nice change from constantly working around here.... I'm not complaining, mind you.

I gotta go, Carlo

The garage is looking good Carlo! I'm hoping the weather won't be as bad as the warning's they're giving out...I used to fly box kites when I was a little bit younger and although it was fun they weren't all that much to look at, and they made the string a bit tough to hold on to. have a GREAT day and a GREAT weekend dude!!!
