Tin Roof? Rusted. Ok, Then How's About Tin Ceiling?

Fundage is a bummer, man, so I got the brilliant (with desperation being the mother of invention) idea of putting up a tin ceiling.

I'd gleaned some old barn metal from Rafe next door and am installing it as my ceiling over the insulation.

It's like, hep cat daddy-o.  All the cool kids are doin' it.

And by 'it' I mean putting in tin ceilings.  So my poverty has finally made me trendy.

Some nail kegs for furniture, flour sacks for slip-covers, some feed sacks for rugs, some corn-shucks for mattress-filler, and there you are!

Or "and Bob's your uncle" as the Brits say.

LOL, who is 'Jay Bird'?

"Jay Bird?" A Large, meat-eating bird, of course!"

I think of the "I Love Lucy" episode when "Cousin" Tennessee Ernie Ford came to NY for a visit and Lucy redid the apartment to make it look like Ricky had los his job and they were poor. Or was it when she was trying to convince the elderly butcher that she was a terrible housekeeper with lots of kids...oh, I cannot remember. It has only been 50-years ago I saw that till the reruns on TV-Land.

But really...it is a great idea and should work well...too bad is is not on the outside during a rain one night! Again, you are so talented baby brother.

If your tin roof gets hot, will you need a cat on it?

Only if the Desire streetcar runs past my collection of glass on the night that big lizard comes.

Got it, Blanche?

Watch it, Gleaner! I'll put you in the driver's-side-back-seat and let some car smack you!

Hey, quite the man cave, Charlie! I wish you'd hurry up and get to the important part - what refreshments will be served here! lol
