to give me an estimate on replacing the entire roof on the main house. This outfit also does painting, so they’ll be estimating that as well.
One thing I did not realize; when the price of oil goes up, so does asphalt shingles. He said it would be cheaper to put sheet metal instead of asphalt..so be it…at least the zombies won’t burn us out with flaming arrows…
The other guy called back, and he’ll be here Monday to give his estimate. I thought he was the owner/proprietor of that business Patriot’s Roofing, but I am thinking now he is an outside salesman, which means more $$$.
And here I am, preaching to the wife about saving $$$…I ordered a set of Bully Post Hole diggers; $75..yep, they cost more but they should last longer than the $40 pair.
The wife has a Dr appt Tuesday, and I am going to drive her to the big city, and drop her off while I go pick up a gate, and run a couple of errands.
The wife leaked to SIL about the deer problem, and wanting a gate(s) installed. BIL, in his infinitesimal carpentry experience, volunteered to drive down and “help” installing a gate.
My beer supplies arrived, and lo and behold they actually shipped it with a cold ice pack with the yeast..I still think it was chickenshit of them to not say anywhere that they are now in Minnesota, instead of Texas. The yeast was very fresh, so I am not in a particular hurry to brew with the rest going on here.
Speaking of which, some critter got into the chicken coop last night, and killed 10 of the kid’s chickens..it was not pretty…chicken bodies and parts all over the coop. Two survived. Whatever it was, it took nice dump during the carnage..
I think I have convinced the kid to forego chicken activity this year, and over the winter, work on rebuilding the coop. I suggested she give her last two away to the neighbors, who let their chickens run free during the day…
I was also thinking about a game camera to set up out there to maybe get an idea of the culprit, then trap as necessary. Any suggestions on an inexpensive game camera?
