Meet the framers
Marvin is #6..light blue shirt, pencil in his hat
he is a 
Trey (red shirt) is Marvin's son and Marvin is teaching him the ropes of framing
and griping all the rest of us out

He doesn't like my pool and told me it was a waste
it needed catfish
and they (the pool guys) were in his way
I wanted to say
"they ain't late so get to framing Marvin"

I wanted to gripe them out too...they are trampling my new grass
what a mess

Instead I baked them all some homemade sticky buns

because I learned a long time ago
sweet words are like honey
they made the roof of the turret 
they asked contractor if they could

besides..look at my yard
I should be the one who is 

Their only job is to frame

a lot of wood

and nails

and not much relief from the heat...no wonder

By the time Marvin left
we were buds
they will be back to do another house this week coming up
I promised him catfish..mudcats in the bottom of my pool...just for him

I'm seriously considering hooking him up with my mom
they would make a real cute couple

he wouldn't know what hit him

Do you think grouchy Marvin would find it amusing if when he wasn't looking we stole his pencil.
I think you should tell him that you've decided the turret should become an elevator too.
They are doing a fabulous job.

Imagine that: Marvin and your mom! You could get free future framing out of it. Looking great, Gina!!

Too funny, Gina. What is it about contractors that makes them so grouchy? And the happy ones never seem to get any work done because they are too busy talking to the homeowner (experienced that!!)

The turret looks AMAZING! Worth the grouchy framer for sure.
