Ok, So This is a Great Story . . .

I was parked in the post office parking lot yesterday when a young healthy man in his mid 20s came up to my window and asked for a dollar or two.  I told him no and he walked away.  As I pulled out of the parking lot, I thought "hmmmm, I need a third set of hands to get the roof on the studio."  I went around the block, chatted with him for awhile and asked him if he wanted a job.

He said he lived with his grandmother and so I told him I would call him later in the day.  His grandmother answered the phone and I vetted this young man through his grandmother.  I then talked to him and hired him for this morning at 10:00 a.m.  Here is what we got done today . . .

We have to take the lower row of this side of the Studio off tomorrow because once we started putting on the other side, we realized we we had installed the wrong size panels.

The rest of the trusses and the whole roof got put on today!!  Ha!! Ha!!  We are so impressed with ourselves!!  Well, except for the boo boo on the other side of the roof!!  :-))

We had a great day to work and got so much done!!  Jordan did great!!

Tomorrow is supposed to be another rain-less day and Jordan is coming over tomorrow morning to help again.


  1. Looking SOOO good! How exciting! Sorry about the boo-boo.
    I'm proud of you for hiring the young man.

  2. Awesome story, and I am sure he appreciated the work, and you appreciated the extra set of hands.

  3. Now that is what I call a good story. Win win situation for all of you. I am mighty impressed with all the progress.

  4. That IS a good story! Good for everyone!

  5. I know that the money your helper earned gave him pride that a simple handout could never had done! You are getting closer to the finish line! Don't laugh too loudly, but I have always loved the look of new new wood. Yours looks wonderful!
