Garage Repair

In June a high wind blew down a tree on my garage and did some damage. The contractor planned to put new shingles on and fix the damage then. However, we got rain. Then he thought he could get the job done and sure enough, more rain. Days became months and everytime there was a dry day, there were 4 wet ones. It was a good thing the roof didn't leak thru onto the car. That was one good thing. Then Monday, they came and by Tuesday they had the roof completed and everything cleaned up by just past noon. And sure enough it really poured that night and all the next day and has been raining overnight every night. We aren't going to see much dry weather over Labor Day and that is too bad. Families want to get together for that last hurrah before cold weather sets in.

Broasted Chicken

Sometimes I get hungry for good broasted chicken. I know I can always go uptown to the Pizza Ranch and get the best broasted chicken and potatoes too. They have a huge selection of pizzas. Sometimes I just order a chicken dinner or a small pizza and go get it and bring it home to eat. It is so handy. They have a wonderful salad bar too. It is a good place to eat after a matinee movie too. It's close to home so you don't mind going out at night. And if you don't feel like going out, they will deliver anything you order. It is always great food. You are never disappointed.

A while back a tree fell on my roof. The landlord told me last night he plans to start roofing the garage on Friday. The weather reports are talking of rain. Now they say it could be put off a couple of days and not rain till Sunday and Monday. I wish it would keep moving back long enough to get the new shingles on the roof. He is going to add a couple roof vents too, to help the heat escape. That will be great. He has a couple helpers and they are good and they are fast. It will be great to have that taken care of.
