Not only did our friends, Joan and Jim, get whisked off to Oolagah the day after they arrived but they were awakened at the bright and early hour of 7:30 a.m. with 6 workers on top of our roof, banging, scraping and making all sort of loud noise. Of course, we had warned them of this happening the night before when we all went to bed!!!!

Lots of noise and activity early on this October 20th morning.
The joy of all this is that they were completely finished by 4:30 that afternoon. They had removed the 2 previous old roofs and replaced them with a brand new one. The shingles are actually a rust color, to blend in with our reddish trim and the brown stone, but the sun was shining too brightly in this picture and it looks grey.
A better picture, from the back, showing the true roof color.
Now for the BLESSING part of our roof story. MUCH to our surprise this brand new roof was covered 100% by our insurance coverage rebate!!!! All we paid was $40 to have 2 extra vents put in over the garage.
Our God DOES meet all our needs and blesses us above and beyond just as The Word proclaims.
