Pics in the next post because I never have figured out how to do it in the first post.

I lost a few tabs off the asphalt shingles when a big storm came through about two weeks ago and I decided replacing was better than repairing. I knew it needed a new roof when I bought it. It appraised for $112,000 and I paid $105,000 so I left myself some wiggle room.

I had a 40 year grade 1 steel roof put on by my neighbor. I'll be 87 by the time the roof needs replaced again so it will probably outlast me.

Paid about $3300 materials and $1000 labor. James saved me a couple thousand. It's great when you know the right people.

I'm very happy with the job he did and James said "Don't be surprised if it lasts 60 years.

I ordered the materials on Tuesday and they were delivered Thursday.

James put it on Friday and Saturday while I was up in Evansville seeing my kids friends and family.

In other news I rescued an opposum this morning. He had got into the grit dumpster and coun't get out b ease he had about 2 feet of 60 degree bare metal to climb.

I took a rake and pulled him up to where he could climb out onto the wall and walk away. He bit the rake once or twice but calmed down once he realized what I was doing.

No picture because I didn't think to take one. I was focused on rescuing that poor woodland creature because I'm awesome like that.

Thanks! I like how it changes color depending on the sun. It should reflect heat and lower my A/C bill, but I'll never know for sure because I just moved here in december.

If you were referring to the possum saving that's just a part of the job. Protecting the environment is my purpose in life
