The nail gun shoots really, really fast.
You can have 5 nails in one spot in the space of a second!
No one really wants 5 nails in one spot in a shingle.
The nail gun is very scary.
Even if you think all your shingles are lining up straight as can be
they tend to drift a bit. But I think it adds interest to what is otherwise a boring straight line.
To really see what you are doing when lining them up
it is best to be on the down-hill side of the shingle on your knees.
I think that is probably a life lesson:
Things work out best when you are on your knees.
Real roofers can and do wear turquoise nail polish. (the one in the white shirt. Not the bandit wielding the nail gun)
I don't want to be a roofer.
Even if it is a good workout.
It is most efficient to work in groups--
I really could not have done all that work
without the help of Jake, Les and Kenny. And Tim and Dakota and Mike. And Sarah.
I prefer being the meal preparer.
Meal preparing is not a good workout.
It is detrimental to my physical appearance.
Unless fluffy is more appealing than tough.
ALL Done!! Just a few hours before the Tornado Sirens went off.
