WOW!  Pretty Impressive!  I'm pretty bee crazy....but that's looking like one I might of had to say, "Thanks, but no thanks!" on... Smiley

On the other hand, if there's enough dead President's involved....maybe so!  grin

A 78 year old man put that up there?  This 44 year old man would pause at that request.  Not saying I wouldn't do it but I wouldn't be itching to do it unless the price is right.  I hope to be able to still do that at 78...

Thanks guys, I still try, but getting harder all the time. This is the last one with cedar shakes, too many ways for them to get back in, I used 7 tubes of silicone caulk, and still have found them going back in this morning. Cedar shakes are definitely the hard ones  NO MORE.. The height is a problem also, but the guy called and I answered (I know you can't fix stupid) at least that is what Si says on Duck Dynasty...   JPPBEEGETTER

When I was younger I worked stupid and as I am getting older I find ways to not use my body as much. My son at 32 doesn't listen too well and think he's made of steel. You would think after seeing me layed up for over a month with sciatica pain would help rethink how to lift stuff but sometimes you have to let stupid fix itself if it can. grin If I live to be 78 which is 26 years in the future I would hope to be strong and smart enough to get them bees. Wink Good job and nice pics JPbeegetter.

yall are missing it I am 34 with a 2 year old climbing that high is the stupidest thing I could do. At 78 dieing falling off a ladder seems like a manly way to go compared to the other options lol. Just like my dad who is 68 and still runs a full load of commercial fishing nets everyday of the week rain sleet or snow. People ask why I let him. I tell them him dieing on that boat is the way he wants to go. I bet the people that love jp say the same thing when explaining these photos lol.

JPBG, you're about as dumb as that guy that lives about 12 mile south of you.

I don't know, in one you are in a cherry picker, and in the other you are standing on a flat stable surface.  Both would be plenty o.k. in my book.
