Mother always said other people went out for a quart of milk, and I went out for an adventure. I was at work before nine yesterday; things to do before I left for Columbiana. The man in the plaid shirt was the boss of all the pipe. He's gone. Now we have the boss of the shingles. He wears a green ball cap. He wife may not like him, either. The daring young men and I remain friends.
The young men were on top, and shingles already were tumbling when I arrived. I stayed well off the parking lot; I went out to the sidewalk to take my pictures. Used my telephoto, and everything!
I thought I'd go a little up the drive to the upper lot and take pictures of the mess of shingles coming down. That got the attention of the man in the green cap. He came across the lot yelling and waving his arms. "You can't come up here!" I came as far as I intended to, almost up to this hand stuck straight out, while his other hand motioned for a truck to get over there.
As soon as he had the place effectively blocked from an old lady he left, and I took pictures of stuff already on the ground, before nine in the morning. Good for them, getting up so early!
Then I walked on the grass, behind the tailgate of the white truck and leaned against a tree on the corner to take a couple more pictures. Here's stuff going down:
Here's stuff coming up. I was real sorry I hadn't hooked my cane over my arm so the man in the green cap could see what a tough old lady he really was dealing with.
Saturday morning. This morning. Things are happening. No shingles, yet. I took this from across the street, because the boss in the green cap already gave me "The Eye."
I drove over to the town hall, parked in the lower lot and walked on the grass to the corner of the upper lot. I turned to take a picture, and look at that. The boss in the green cap really wants to be on the ground. When there, he got in the white truck and left.
The daring young men called over, "It's OK, you can get off that grass and come over", and so I did. I got thumbs up from them before they went back to their roof. They also told me the shingles would start going up on Tuesday. As I drove home I saw shingles were just starting to come down on the other side of the building.
