It was a good week
« on: March 19, 2011, 08:17:36 AM »
While having our roof re-done the contractor`s  supplier sent architectural shingles along with the top of the line skylite. The guys doing the install didn't know what we had ordered and by the time it was noticed 90% of the roof was done :D

The boss was pissed at his crew & the supplier but said it was his problem and theres no extra charges :D :D

The bathrooms & living room tile is almost done so we drove back home yesterday evening. Thats when my luck ran out or so I thought, after being stuck in traffic for 30 mins on st rd 40 behind some jerk doing 35mph I saw an opening. A downshift and thats two cars passed as I pulled back in line only I noticed blue/red lites flashing 5 cars behind.... GPS showed 82mph in a 55mph zone  :o

I was busted no way outta of it, so as the cop weaved his way closer I pulled over to face the music. "Hows it going"  not too good now sir,  "Why? at this point I babbled about the traffic ect as I handed my papers over knowing the ticket would be about $400.

He runs my info and hands my stuff back and says "he feels your pain"(re: traffic) and only stopped me as I looked like someone they wanted really bad. Did I mention he was packing 3 guns & dress in full swat gear, so my speeding & passing of 2 cars wasn't worth his time and  I was free to go ;D

Yep it was a good week, I thought about buying a lotto ticket before thinking maybe I had used up all my good luck.

Wooee, lucky lucky!

When I read the title, I though you might have about 3-4 hydrometer shots to show off! ;D

Looks tropical man.  Cheers to spring.

True that!

Those shingles ought to hold up better in bad weather. Do they go well with the house?

I could have used a bit more of Winter. The AC has been running and I've already mowed the yard three times. :( Hoping I was gonna be able to wait until April.
