Day Brightener – Repairing The Downspout

Last week, my friend Jake’s wife said to him, “Honey, get off your butt and fix the gutter downspout!   It’s going to rain,  so I want it done by tomorrow!”

Jake and most of his friends are retired and enjoy helping each other address such “honey do’s”, so  he invited us over to help with the project the next day at 10:00 –

Paul retired as a sheet metal fabricator.
Pete brought his welder.
Bob brought beer and Nachos.
I brought a grill and makings for hamburgers.

The repair took us about 6 hours and we completed it just as we finished the three cases of beer.

Jake’s wife came out, saw our work, turned on her heel and stopmed back into the house!

He can’t understand why she was upset, because we all love it!

Personally, I cannot wait for rain later today.
