I have to say I admire the strength, flexibility, and sheer endurance of the guys who do roofing work. I admire athletes who are good at their game, but, to me, it's still just a game. A roofer, on the other hand, is actually doing something worthwhile and constructive. Up and down the ladder, hauling shingles, scraping off shingles, bending over to tack nails. It's really a lot a hard work.
When I looked out the door Friday, I could see the shadow of the roofer who was on the very peak of the house. He was sitting there scraping off shingles. Then he would get up and haul a handful over to throw into the trailer. He certainly had my admiration.
