I finally shelved all my dictionaries. I had to move travel books to another case, and have a double row in places but..... :D

oh and the fireworks were THE BEST (although no wind meant shrapnel showers..... I have dandruff like Braille and you could probably build an entire new firework from what was in my bra....

They have fireworks at a school and a fire company that I can hear from inside my house. I didn't hear anything tonight. Might of been called off or I'm getting deafer.

All public fireworks are cancelled here. These were not :) Just professional quality and then some :D

Nice work! Roof stuff is fun. Power washing, too.

Good work!

Now you've taken off the extra layer of protection from the sun and the elements. :p:

BigV 07-06-2020 01:23 AM

definitely one way of looking at it.

that same layer slowed the removal of the element water, which wants to get to the center of the earth. I want to expedited its journey by moving it off the roof most quickly.

Turf, and a goat to mow it. :lol:

You speak in jest, but being famously literal and humorless, I believe you make a good point, one I do support. But, support is key here. The structure was not made to support the weight of a turf roof. Unfortunately. I love the look and the idea but a real turf roof would crush the structure underneath after letting it soak into rottenness.

There's a real green roof at the Blueberry Park nearby, just the roof over the picnic shelter. It's quite solid, post and beam construction with no need for walls. They've even applied a rubber base layer and "walls" along the roof to contain the water from the drip irrigation also installed. There are mostly tiny sedums and other succulents. I do see some grassy volunteers planted by the birds.

I find them attractive and I appreciate your encouragement and creativity.

What's that weigh when saturated with water, I wonder...

Well, are the supports made of African or European timber?
