6-20-2013 1st day summer
To accomplishments for today I had baled the hay I’d cut day before yesterday. Later in the day I stubbornly, my having no sensible safe physical need to be up there, I fixed my roof replacing three full shingles, nailing the rest what were loose back down.
The roof’s fixing went easily enough, my roof repair problem had stealth-fully developed by the time I wanted to get back off the roof. While I had been setting upon my derriere’s left cheek I had become lame to the point as I had tried to move some cramps were fixing to seriously set in.
Nobody else particularly worried about me, only I wasn’t supposed to do it, I sat up there dwelling upon two thoughts. Sliding off the roof on the loosened granules under my feet and rear to land on the brush-hog parked immediately under the eave where I had been working. The other, nobody paying any attention to me I had thoughts of calling the fire department to get me of the roof. By the time I managed and gritted the pain, was down on the ground leaving the ladder stand the roof materials lay, I was whipped. It was time I had to quit and go horizontal to escape the pain!!!

Sorry you had to go through all that trouble to fix your roof, Fernan. But when it comes to a problematic roof, it is better to address it as soon as possible rather than wait and end up with a bigger problem than what it was originally. That said, I hope your repairs have held up against the rains you've been experiencing. Has the weather let up yet?

Really hate it when that happens. But I don’t think it has happened to me while I am on the roof or in a precarious position. It’s a good thing you were able to power through the pain and get down before something happened.

I’ve been in that position myself while laying down some shingles. I guess I was kneeling for far too long that my leg started falling asleep on me. Good thing I didn’t try standing up abruptly, or I may have slid off the roof there and then.
