The wind from this storm blew shingles off my daughter Karol’s roof. On Saturday, her brothers, Mark and Richard, (see picture of three people) came to help her take the old roofing off and put the new roof on. Since Karol’s friend Roger and her son, Ryan, and five other teenaged nephews and friends came to help, Terry decided that he did not need to climb on the roof. He did tune in the satellite dish for her. Everyone was hot and tired when they finished, especially Richard and Mark who worked the night shift on Friday and had not had any sleep.
I got to play with grandchildren Emily and Nathan. Emily had her eleventh birthday last week. Nathan is a six-year-old. I noticed that Nathan stuck out his tongue when he was concentrating on the puzzle.
Yes, Iowa is a place where my grandson and his girlfriend, who are juniors in high school, say that their favorite subject is AG (Agriculture). It is where the teenagers go to their prom in a tractor, four-wheeler or old truck while wearing formal clothes. They also help on the farm and help replace a roof for friends and relatives.
