This is the roof of the barn where Deb lives:
I got a couple of estimates from professional roofers to replace it. You might have heard the screaming and sobbing from where you are. Luckily, my friend George (the husband of my friend Robin, who I often "rent" to do jobs that are too big for me to handle or require skills sets I lack...like the ability to use power tools without slicing off an important body part) was willing to tackle the project, which included some fairly substantial structural repairs inside the barn roof as well. It is still going to cost a Crapload of Money (multiple thousands) to put a new metal roof up there, but once I do, it won't have to be redone again.
And the metal for the roof comes in different colors :-) Anyone have a guess which color I picked?
In the meanwhile, the amount of money I'm having to spend (after having to put a new roof on the HOUSE last year!) is making me twitch a little. So if the gods could see their way clear to sending me a nice multiple-book publishing contract for my new novel, which is about to go out on submission, I would really appreciate it.
So--what color do you think I am putting on the barn roof? And if you had one, what color would you use?
