Happy Birthday, Granddad

My Granddad H. turned 75 this year, and for his birthday he was given 2 things to cover his head: a cool Aggie hat, and a new roof. His kids paid for the roof, and the grandkids were in charge of labor. I admit that some of my uncles were the hardest working ones on the roof, but on Saturday we went up to help. Cody put in some good time on the roof and brought his brother, Ryan with him (thanks again, Ryan! you totally rock!); Lee and I played safely on the ground. We tossed up drinks and tried to help as much as we could, but were very impressed with those who did defy gravity.
Uh-oh Grandpa, Lee stole your hat!
Everyone after we'd called it a day--very hot and tired.

Yup, and it's not done yet. We'll be back up there tomorrow with a fresh uncle (one who hasn't worked yet).
