Roof work


This brave gentleman lives a few blocks from us. He was on that roof for several hours. Fortunately, it was a relatively cool day.

And at least he's wearing a hat and long sleeves.

I've done my share of roofing while building Habitat houses. Not my favorite building activity. Hours in that position is hard on legs and back.

Safety, who cares about stuff like that!

I read some years back that falling off roofs was one of the leading causes of death for men over 50. I don't know if that's true, but we leave that sort of work to professionals now.

The plant I posted today is called a tall Oregon grape. It's a very common shrub in these parts and the new growth is often very colorful.

He's braver than me!

Aspiring to new heights?
I will stay grounded.

He doesn't look to safe up there.

Back breaking work, roofing. Still, at least it's a nice dry, sunny day to do it!

Andy said...

I envy him.

A brave gentleman, Lowell, but also a bit careless...

I get vertigo just looking at this photo. ;)

Kate said...

Hot and dangerous. Bet it's an immigrant doing all the work?!

Better now than to scale it in July. Whew! I'd get tired just watching.

Sharon said...

That is some tricky work that I don't think I would attempt any more.

Halcyon said...

Not a job I'd like to do!

No fun being up on that roof. Looks like he's puttong a whole new ridge on. Good luck to him. MB

It's a fabulous photo but shouldn't he be harnessed?

Bibi said...

He's daring. Even this fellow here downtown had more protection!

Jack said...

Yup. This is another job I don't want.
