This post. . .has been phonetically enhanced for my American friends in honour of their celebration tomorrow. . .Happy 4th of July. .ya all.
I found the claim below in our phone book.
"not only do we pride ourselves in providing quality workmanship, we also take the extra time and effort to ensure that your home is kept safe, clean and organized during your home improvement project"
Call the Roofing Expert Pat Peters
(see the top left hand corner of the collage below for the very cold minus 15 with northeastern winds picture. . )
I know it doesn't look cold. .
but when the northeastern starts to blow in our part of Canada. ..
You know you've been farming 15 years. . .
when the roofing . .or roofing. .as in booking .. .
that was freshly nailed up to stop the rain from entering the kitchen . .
starts to end up in the neighbors field.
my beloved. . began to call up roofers
. . or roofers as in bookers. .
We decided to do the sensible thing. .
and go with the company that had the slogan. .
roof experts. . or roof as in book. . experts.
He said he would come in July.
June 30 we were still tucked in bed ..
when we heard a bit of commotion on the roof. .
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
My beloved said. . ."it's the roof expert".
They got straight to work.. . .
stripped the old roofing .. or roofing as in booking ..
and nailed up some fresh sheets of plywood over the . . .
ship lap. .that prided itself in curves.
Our 60's bungalow. . .with a new roof. .or roof as in book.
They swept. . .packed away the bits of garbage. . .
used a magnet sweeper to find every last nail. . .and they were gone.
And on top of all that. .
They came on Canada Day. . .
stood at attention while we hoisted the new flag . . .
and politely accepted a Canada Day Scone.
It's just the two of us again. .
All for now. .
