Fred,
totally willing to go check in on your dogs whilst you are at the Fest. Just let me know.
And, uh, I'm seeing a little bit of white space left in a couple of your posts, are there not enough smilies?
Seriously, I think you could squeeze another one or two in there if you got creative with it.
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood here. The guys across the store from us are walking around on a roof 30 feet off the deck with extension cords, tools, loose screws laying about. Near as I can tell, insulation scraps are the OSHA approved fall arresting device of the day. If someone goes down, they have to throw the insulation out ahead of them and hope it breaks the blow.

You guys are always ahead of the curve in Nebraska! What a great safety device. I'm taking one on my next plane trip!

RW, we have been using that arresting device out here on the Correct Coast for decades. I have actually initiated contests with some of my least favorite contractors using a minimum 40 foot drop and smallest amount of insulation possible as a way to increase manliness here. Strangely enough the interest is quite high among most of our least intelligent roofers and contractors. Unfortunately some of the poor fellows used less insulation than was necessarry but the services afterward were very nice.

Just struck me as odd that Poter out there on the Left or Incorrect Coast had not heard of this marvelous safety device. Fred

Potatosan, just the opposite. These little contests have been what have kept me more engaged and quite interested in life itself. Ah, what irony, eh? Fred

They're only great until you lose! How far have you got your "intelligent" roofers to fall? And what's the R-value of the insulation? Sounds like a pretty selective process to me: just make sure you run your competition before anyone has children...

Poter, you see that is the whole beauty of this setup. I do not participate I just initiate. My "intelligent" roofers and contractors are by mere Darwinism not married nor have any of them procreated. The minimum drop is 40 feet and they are allowed to pick their own R-value though it may be intimated that the lower the R-value the more manly. Accordingly most of them appropriately choose an R-value of 5. Strangely enough there is never a second choice after the first jump. Fred
