Our Neighbors' New Roof
Anyway, the reason these people have to get a new roof is because their old roof was really, really old. And the reason it was so very old is because there used to be an old couple named Mr. and Mrs. Price who lived in that house, and they didn't do much to fix up the house, on account of maybe they didn't have much money in their old age.
So when Mom first moved into our house, Mr. Price had to have an oxygen tank thing all the time, but Mrs. Price seemed like she was healthier, and she liked to sit outside and read books. Then she surprised everybody by dying first, even though everyone thought Mr. Price would die first. And then after a year or so, he died, too.
So this family has lived there like maybe three years now, and they have been fixing up different parts of the house every year. And now they are finally getting a new roof. And after they get the new roof, they are going to get new paint on the house. We don't know what color the house will be when it is painted, but we hope it won't be white because white is boring.
Mom didn't get a photo of the shirtless guy, which is kind of sad because he has nice muscles. Not that Mom pays much attention to that sort of thing. Mostly she is interested in his tattoos, but it's kind of hard to see them very well, just looking out our bedroom window. But what we can see for sure is that he has a really big spider tattoo on his back.
Well, okay, that's all I'm going to say about the neighbors' roof. I'm just glad we don't have to get a new roof on our house because it is a noisy, messy thing to have happen right up above your head, and I don't think I would like it very much!
