Randy took vacation time this week, one reason there has been no post. We decided to get some of the unfinished projects on the house finished. The most dreaded was finishing the soffits on the west side. Chara had to work till noon, her only job when she got back seemed to be squirting everyone with ice water out of her " Super Soak-er."She is so helpful.


As you can see the roof line is pretty far up there. We had only one ladder tall enough, so they backed up the dump truck and put the other ladder in the back. Southern ingenuity at it's best going on here. They then ran a board through the top rungs to make a scaffolding. Between the two of them there was over 500 pounds on that board, they were scaring me. They got over half of it up. Next I get to paint. The debate is still going on over the color. If anyone is bored you can come help me paint!!!!

Yikes. So, are you going up on the scaffolding to paint?

I can see how being squirted with a little cold eater can be considered helpful, especially if it's hot outside. Many times at work I'm torn between drinking my water, or pouring it over myself.

I think those jobs should wait until fall - just my opinion.

That's quite a bit of Shade Tree Engineering, there!
