That's totally nutty, but I think I got a better one. On my brand-new blog -- which I won't link to yet because it's embarrassingly primitive still -- I have a picture of insurance adjusters on the roof of my Mom's house in New Orleans, a month after Katrina. Loose shingles, etc. and not a single hospital open in the entire city.

That would be Mad Jack McMad of McMad & Sons MadRoofers, an ideal choice of contractor sir, I bet he wears slick leather soles on his boots too.

I was going to say something clever but then I read Gary's comment. Since he blew the roof off with his wit and nailed it perfectly...I'll just do laundry instead.

This one time? Um, my Dad was up on the roof for unknown reasons (probably his wife sent him up there to alphabetize the roofing nails or something) and he totally fell off the roof. And broke his hip in such a way that it didn't show up on xrays and the Navy doctors accused him of malingering. Because he was all in the Navy at the time.

And finally they found the break and he was all, like, vindicated and stuff. And it wasn't even snowing at the time!

That's what I think about when I see some schmuck up on the roof. I have no idea why it came out in teenspeak dialect but I decided to just go with it. In my defense, it is very early and I've already done two loads of laundry for no good reason.

You're missing out on the logic here. Since it's winter, it can't rain and wreck the interior. Brilliant!

The only thing I did on the roof in Duluth in the winter was shovel snow. And I thought that was insane.

Not my idea of a good time.

If that were me, I'd travel with my own trampoline. And I'd hire kids to hold the trampoline and move along with me as I worked.

neva said...

HA!

(what can i say, that was hella funny) : )

Mitch McDad said...

That doesn't look like it's going to end well.

VE said...

Call me silly, but aren't there easier ways to break into your neighbor's house?

Palm Springs Savant said...

covered in snow? what happened, was it leaking??? yikes

Doozie said...

no....that's the definition of retarded. and those shingles are going to seal when?

Diesel said...

Oh my. I hope he's insured. And not, like, retarded.

Gale said...

I am sitting here in utter envy. The shop roof has leaked since day one....10 years now. Wondering if they would like to come to Idaho.....

Emma Sometimes said...

Hey, we all have to make Santa safe, too you know. All that roof jumping....

(your neighbor is nuts though)

Dan said...

OK ... be honest ... how long did you hang out in your window awaiting the AFTER photo?
