First off, I’d like to thank Andy Sharber and the fine folks at Griffin Marine in Wanchese. They do great work, and are amazingly kind people. They provided us with a circuit breaker box today, presumably out of some sort of yacht. I thought it was kind of funny that everything was marked auxiliary, but either way it’s a great thing to have and I immensly appreciate Andy’s kindness. Thanks!
The other great news of the day is we actually — wait for it — started the roof! How many times have I promised that? Well, we got the tar paper up and I started shingling in weather that was no less than 147 degrees. Or not. But it was slightly warm! Milk would have been a bad choice! The roof will be a bit multi-colored, but it’ll be alright. Adds a bit of charm. But not like lucky charms… a marshmallow roof would just be silly.
As you can see, Hyatt also kept up his industrious cedar shaking. There actually isn’t much left of that wall to do given the windows, and the good news is we didn’t make too much of a dent in our cedar shake supply. We still won’t have enough, but it will at least be close.
Well, I can’t think of something witty to put here as the ending, so I’ll leave you with a quote.
“Feel it all with a willing heart
Every stop is a place to start
If you know how to play the part with feeling” -Jimmy Buffett
That has nothing to do with this blog, but the song happens to be playing right now, so go with it. Peace. -Ted
