Happy Nellie Day! Sounds like you had a good one!
Our roof is now 11 years old. We got what were purported to be 30-year shingles. I guess we’ll see in another decade, assuming we still live here. We had gutters, windows, siding, and trim all replaced at the same time, and the whole shebang came in just under $30K. And that was right after we paid $8K for a new well. We were still working and well-paid at that point, so all we needed was a short-term loan. If we had to do it today, we’d be cracking into our retirement slush fund.
I went to college in Indiana and the clocks didn’t change then (do they now??) but my TV schedule would change. I liked when we were on Central time - I didn’t have to stay up too late on a school night. Of course, whenever I called my folks, the first question usually was “What time is it there?” Come to think of it, they asked the same when I was in California…
And Happy Ooopsie Day! I’d like a piece of cake with extra frosting, please!
I think today’s biggest chore will be mowage of ditches and the hill, tho I may whack the hill instead, since the whacker weighs a lot less. We shall see. And I didn’t get around to the windows the other day, so I may take a crack at that also… maybe I should say crack and windows in the same sentence?
And, of course, I’ll run FCD thru his exercises. He’s doing really well. Some of the stretches hurt his back, but then lots of things hurt his back, poor guy. I wish we had a hot tub - I’m sure that would help. A hot tub helps a lot of things!
This coming weekend is the county fair, and I’m going with my daughter and Roxy. SIL has to work and FCD just isn’t up for it. I wish we could rent a scooter for the day, altho I don’t know how we’d transport it. Anyway, since my daughter is in charge of the yearbook this year and her school will be participating in the parade, she’ll be taking photos so I’ll be wrangling Roxy for part of the time. Then we’ll look at animals and maybe let her go on a couple of rides. The weather promises to be perfect.
This weekend is also hazardous material amnesty day at the landfill - we’ve got a bunch of old cans of paint to get rid of. I need to get them loaded into the truck before Firday. So much busy ahead.
