What Was I Thinking?

Waterloo, Ontario, October 11, 2007I keep getting strange jobs to do in Waterloo. I've installed paving stones and shower tiles. I've patched the peak of a roof. I seem to do every trade but carpentry. But hey, it's a living. So here I am, building scaffolds so that I can install aluminum soffit and fascia on this 1905 home. Fortunately, I have a harness on for protection at these heights.You see that vent up there on that gable? I have to install vented soffit over it. As I stand up here reaching as far out as I can; holding myself in place with one foot while reaching out with the opposite hand, I find myself asking myself the question over and over again: "What was I thinking?"
