Last Saturday was the second annual H.O.P.E. tournament and John and I teamed up with Jim H. and Gina F. Much to our surprise, we were the winners of the second flight. Our play wasn't too great until the last six holes where we made four birdies in a row which gave us a score of 5 under par.
The fort is extremely busy with roofing crews and glass installers running all over the place. We had met with the insurance adjuster, signed a contract with a roofing contractor, and this Sunday our new metal roof was installed. The contractor called Saturday night and told us he generally doesn't work on Sunday, but there are so many people needing a new roof, they are working seven days a week. The crew that did our house was great--very professional and fast. Our new roof was done in seven hours and John and I are extremely pleased with their work. John is busy now painting our new shutters, scrubbing up the screens and the outside of the house. He also needs to do some paint touch-up and re-stain the deck where the hail stones rubbed off the deck finish.
