You can take the girl out of the country...

What, you may ask, am I doing here? It's simple, really. I am merely using what I have available to me for some light housekeeping (is it still called housekeeping when it's on the outside? Maybe it's maintenance..). We have some ice that's actually a lot of ice weighing our roof down. Correction: We had some.. Now it's gone, thanks to this lovely thing most often used as a closet rod. Being on the second floor, I didn't feel exactly comfortable stretching the upper part of my body out the window to take down the ice.

While talking on the phone with Kim (who knows my quirky problem-solving ability has brought me to shoot geese out my window in the country as well) the thought came to me and made a good story.

Maybe I should be a mechanical engineer. Anyone hiring?

Is this Kim you speak of your AP? Because I remember a time when we were chatting and you decided to whip out your camera to shoot poultry. Perhaps it was a turkey? If not, who's this person who's stolen my name?!

(PS, you're looking nice!)

Come on, 2 intensive months together and I haven't even rubbed off on you enough to monkey on out of your 2nd story window and wrestle that ice down with your teeth? Spoons not forks! Well, points for creative tool use, anyhow. And for constructive action against potential structural destruction.

Alas, Kimmee, it was not you. It's Kim, an intern at Cedar Campus, who stole your name. She's cool, no worries :) And it was indeed turkeys, crossing in front of my car that day ;)

And Amber, it really wasn't possible for me to get all the ice from the window. Some of it was more than 6 feet away. Making the very long closet rod a requirement. And I did lean out the window...

i'm not sure why...but this photo makes me smile. and amber, i can totally see climbing out on the roof regardless of the perilous height or distance. and this thought also makes me smile.
