Loose roof shingles

Loose roof shingles
I belong to a little brick bungalow in the midwest US, built in '54.
Contractor did a scrape and shingle back in '96 ("20 year" shingles). Missed a spot around a vent. I took some ceiling damage before he got over to nail down some loose shingles.
Now I got at least 2 more shingles near the peak, flappin' in the hi winds.
I am old and infirm, cannot walk the roof. Distrust my footwear, the surface, and my balance. But I can hang off a ladder, get a little work done.
I measured: it's 13' from the edge of the roof to the loose shingles.
To secure the loose shingles, one just smears plastic roof cement underneath and allow to cure?
I'm thinking, if I get 2 14' boards, sharpen the end of one, use that to hold a shingle up, put a mess of cement on the end of the other, push it up, flip it over to apply cement, I could maybe get a decent bond.
Does this sound practical? Alternatives (for a 1 man job from roofs edge)?
Thx, Peetie

Under the shingle and press it down into the cement.
Yes but for $50 bucks in today's economy I bet you can find an agile younger person to climb up there and do it right.
If you feel you have to do it, I would use your wedge and a "pony" paint roller coated in cement to roll it on then use a clean one to roll over it and press it down. A little extra weight on the clean one will help.
Be careful up there. Us older guys break when we fall.

And all the kids that can roof are workin' for 'em.
I'd likely get in big (liability) trouble.

Sounds good.

Ain't it the truth!
Much Thanks, Peetie
