All cheered as the tarps came tumbling down for the last time. The final roof panels are in place, this historic day, 27 July 2008. We're weathered in! Hallelujah!
When I tucked the boys into bed, one asked, "Mom, have you had a shower yet?"
"No, why, do I stink?"
"No, you just smell like the roof."
"That's the smell of a completed roof, baby. Savor the aroma of exhaustion and joy."
