All morning and afternoon, My Beloved Captain and his father, Papa, toiled in the sun on “The Mudpit” patio project.  It was such a beautiful day, and I felt bad that they were missing the fun of it.  They never complained, though.  They just kept measuring and sawing and hammering and sweating.

Then, unexpectedly, we heard a motorcycle pull up.  It was none other than My Captain’s best friend, Ty, who is another fire captain, out for a Saturday afternoon joy ride.  He hung out and chatted for a few minutes….

….and then we heard another motorcycle pull up.  This was our friend Richard and his girlfriend, Kelly.  Richard owns a roofing company, and he is helping My Captain on the particulars of ‘The Mudpit’s” roof.

Here’s the funny part of this: Both Ty and Richard, who have never met before, ride similar Harley Davidsons.   Neither knew the other was coming.  But our driveway was quickly beginning to look like a Harley Rally.

My Captain, Ty, and Kelly all went to the same high school together, which is really kind of nice.

They got a chance to catch up a bit, while My Captain and Papa worked.

And Richard took a look at the structural base for the metal roof we’re going to be putting on soon, to make sure it met his specs, while My Captain and Papa worked.

He gave his professional advice on things like materials and design, while My Captain and Papa worked.

And mentioned that the bathroom vent is going to have to be moved because the roof is going to hit it, which is a huge pain in the butt, but thank goodness he mentioned it now, while My Captain and Papa are working.

It was a lot of testosterone driven manly-man talk, grunting, chin scratching, and head nodding, all while…..
