Gutter adjustment

adjusting a gutter that was not level

This Snap On extra long ratchet driver made these hard to reach jobs easier.

It's one of the few tools I've held onto since my copier repair days.

On the roof

Mark didn't mention that the purpose of this job was to get the gutter level so the water will flow out correctly. After taking all of the screws loose but one, pushing the downspout end about six inches lower, and putting the screws back, water finally flowed in the right direction. Yes, that does mean that this part of the roof is far from level, but, hey, it works!

Looks like your daddy made a roofer out of you.

Daddy --- He sure did. I think I like the roof a lot better than Mark does. Of course, the trailer roof is child's play because it's so low and flat.

What I love most about this blog is that you appear to be the happiest person in the world. I love how your whole face is smiling in almost every picture, even when you are sprawled out on the roof.

I know that you are doing the things that make you the most pleased and satisfied, and that is a joy to watch and read about!
