Happy Caturday, GN!

Dianna --

Hope that Chelsea came through with flying colors and is recuperating well.

Don’t make me do it….

Hmm…where have I seen that phrase before?

BBL.

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning Fatwa!

Dianna -- ditto on the good wishes for Chelsea.

I’m going to replace our skylight this morning, now that the weather is cooler. It’s a relatively simple process, but with the extra sealing I want to do to minimize the possibility of leaks, I just know it’s going to take a while.

The last email I got from the attorney had a subject line of “We are getting closer, I think”, which is good news for a bad situation.

Hai, Paddy!

If I can assist with info on replacing and properly sealing your skylight; please lemme know. (Been involved in replacing hundreds of them over teh years.)

Update @ 11:29 -- Just emailed you contact info, iffen you need it.

Glad to hear that, although it’d be nice if the subject line had been “They’ve repeatedly sullied their undergarments” instead.

Yeah, well, as much as I would have liked that, I’ve got to be content with the fact that they’ve moved a whole lot more than I have.

I’d like to report that the skylight installation went without a hitch.
I’d like to, but I can’t. The skylight I ordered was 75 1/4″ long. The one I received was 72″ long. Unfortunately the existing skylight didn’t survive the throw off the roof. So I made some minor repairs to the roof, returned the skylight, ordered a new one, put a tarp over the skylight opening, made some repairs to the chimney, trimmed the trees overhanging the roof, and cleared debris off the patio cover. Unfortunately I did not have time to visit a local micro-brewery for the tapping of their Oktoberfest (bring your own stein and fill it for $0.25 per ounce).
