A Case of the Shingles

A couple of months ago, Steve and Alex were up on the roof - pruning the large tree that was rubbing against our house.  We knew then that a little roof maintenance was in order.  Just a little.

A couple of weeks ago we had a wind storm and afterwards starting finding shingles in our yard...several shingles.  Great.  Now we really needed to get up there and do something about it, so, Saturday evening (I'd like to say afternoon, but it was later than that) the guys got back up on the roof...this time armed with tarpaper, shingles and roofing nails.  Now for some good news/bad news.  Turns out the shingles in our yard weren't ours.  They belonged to our next door neighbors - but hey, now that minor roof repair job is done AND we have the supplies to replace quite a few shingles, if needed.

Great! So, did you tell the neighbors?

I think it was more a case that they told us...while your Dad and Alex were up on the roof.

I am fond of saying 'not my child.' You can say 'not my roof.'
