It is overcast here again this morning but most thankfully, no wind and at the moment no rain either. Dale and Steve are headed back up to work on the roof at the property. Steve had come to help Dale unload a tool box last night and as we took him home, Dale asked if they needed the flame thrower to dry the roof before laying the felt.
Steve asked why he thought that and Dale said he thought Steve had used it on his roof? Steve's reply......"I did but it was to melt any of the frozen spots so I could work safely and not fall off." Ummmmmmm.....and that worked how? Steve continued, "I had made the first pass over the roof and was doing the second just to make sure I hadn't missed any when I stepped on a slick spot and OFF I WENT!" He had the wind knocked out of him and he said he must have blacked out for a minute but he had the presence of mind when he came to, to turn off the flame thrower!
Steve's roof is a fair bit higher as ours will be and since he fell from the top, it was a long ways to the ground. Since that episode had happened while Steve was staying with us getting the roof up, we had already known about it but I told Steve I think he/Patrick have the same guardian angel.
To hear him and his brothers talk about growing up and the things they did that should have done them in years ago as well as other stories we can tell on Steve since we have known him but will save those for another time. (Picture today is of Steve working on his roof several years after the falling off incident.)
On our way home saw 3 moose and 2 swans. No pictures, rats.....
