At night the stars put on a show for free

When you live in a 85 year old house and find shingles on the ground from your roof after a summer storm you know it's not going to last much longer. Already knew there were two, maybe three layers of shingles up there. Having come into a modest amount of money, the time to get the roof replaced is now, while there are no major holes or leaks to worry about.

It was a tough check to write, but an investment that will be to our advantage when we do put the house on the market - whenever that will be.

After the rep left, my wife said it was wine time, and we toasted my Mom, who is again putting a roof over our heads. Thanks Mom.

Hugs to you Ed. If we're lucky, our parents look out for us long after they are gone.

Who knows, my Mom's business card poked itself out of my wallet yesterday as a reminder.
