This is the sort of day that I really like. Sunny, but cool, light breeze, and I’m off work! Unfortunately, the last part was not true. I still could enjoy it on the way to work, and at lunch, and on the way home. Tomorrow on the other hand, I plan to take advantage of all aspects of a picture-perfect late-summer day by being off work. K. D. Parfitt & Sons Construction plan to install rafters on our one-and-a-half-story “addition”. I call it a quote-unquote “addition” because it’s really the main house. We built the addition four years ago. Please notice also that I used the plural verb-form of “plan” when referring to the activities of K. D. Parfitt & Sons because it is the proper way in the Queen’s English to refer to an organized body. For example, IBM are going bankrupt. Not that they really are; that was just an example. The stock market doesn’t need any more bad news.
Now, back to rafters. The rafters on our “addition” are fabricated from 22-foot 2x12s. I would like to get the roof on and the windows and doors installed before my next entry which will be titled “A Picture-Perfect Late-Autumn Day”.
