The Stooges began construction of the patio cover at 7am Saturday
morning and completed it at 6pm. Thanks to the construction crew of Moe,
Larry and Curley. The Forman was none other than Bob "Moe" Temple AKA
"Crack-the-Whip" Temple. He had 2 mentally challenged non Spanish speaking
workers, Garrett "Curley" Temple AKA "Jake" and Leonard "Larry" Temple AKA
"The Fat man". A couple photos of interest: In one photo it looks like
about to shoot a nail in his own foot. Not to worry though, he did not do
that. He did make the mistake of asking Garrett how far he thought he could
shoot a nail from his nail gun. Leonard's neighbor 2 doors down now has several nails
somewhere in their back yard.
We worked very hard and most importantly we had a
lot of fun.
Thanks to all who made it possible.
-Dad and Garrett for their help and determination to complete the project in
-Shaunna for shooting the photos.
-Sherilyn for restocking the cooler.
-My lovely bride Sheryl for putting up with me discussing about 30
different roofing cinereous over the last few years and for just putting up
with me in general. (oh yea, she financed it as well)
-Kent for his input on different roof slopes and for the use of a very cool nail gun.
-My father-in-law Larry for his help in figuring out how to fill the big
hole in the existing patio and figuring out how much concrete I needed to
-Sheryl, Sherilyn and Shaunna for their help in pouring and finishing the
concrete on a 100+ degree day.
-And our friend Mike for the use of his trailer to haul all those 16' 2x's and all the
What a great thing "family" is. I am very thankful for mine.
Thanks again everybody!
