What are these men smiling about? I'll tell you . . .
The Guys -- Working Together
Ably directed by our friend and neighbor Mark Anderson, over the weekend, they raised the roof on Justin and Claui's back porch and enclosed it. Eventually this new space will contain a dining area, as well as enlarging two existing bedrooms.

And the guys will take a break for lunch. When I return a few hours later, I'm amazed to see what's been accomplished.

It's suggested that I get a group picture  . . . and with a bit of good-natured grumbling, the guys (Mark has already left, alas) line up.
The Guys -- Working Together You couldn't ask for better friends than these! The Guys -- Working Together
(Note to Josie fans: Josie and Claui were in Arkansas for the weekend, celebrating Claui's sister's birthday. That's why no Josie pics.)
