A bit of Roofing for Francey



The weekend of October 2nd found me up on a roof again in Lindsay, Ontario.

My mother-in-law, Janet had organized a work party to re shingle her roof, so I strapped on my belt and up I went. I worked alongside a great crew - headed by my daughter's man, Dave, and his buddy Markus (thanks guys!)
Also running up the ladders were Beth's brothers, Andie, Mark and Bruce.

Beth, her sister Dee and Janet picked up old shingles, cooked fantastic food, drove around looking for 1 1/2 inch nails and generally provided great support.
It was great to connect with my carpentry roots...but I am looking forward to getting back on the road in a few weeks.



all the best, David

  1. Careful up there, David, but you look comfortable. Roofing is a dirty job, aren't you supposed to do it when it's WARM?
