Roof

We have a screened-in porch off the back of our house. The porch is old and in need of major repair but it works for the time being. This weekend I had to clean out the gutters on the porch.

As I climbed the ladder Lauren called out to me.

"Bill? Do you think the roof will hold you?"

"Yes. Wait a minute. Is that a "fat" joke or "weak roof" joke?"

She thought for a second. "Both."

Interesting she worried about the roof holding you when she wasn't worried about the ladder holding up. But the real question is: Did it??

As I learned from an earlier photo which I commented on, there's no reason for fat jokes where you are concerned.

How's that for sucking up since I haven't been visiting as regularly?

It's important to be clear in these matters

I love that play. Sarcasm on a hot tin roof. I think the Cheltenham Family players did that once where William played Elvis.

It could have been a weak ladder joke...or a global warming gravitational pull type deal...lol
