I was driving along a highway yesterday and saw about a half dozen shingles
lying in the left lane. They appeared to be firmly sealed to the asphalt.
If these shingles don't last 20 - 25 years, do you think they would be
covered by the warranty?

Maybe they were mine..... A few years ago I bought some shingles and

A minute later, I was standing in one lane of a two lane highway,
cars whizzing by, picking up the 10 bundles that flew out the back.

that it was a raccoon, and then noticed 2 cars stopped on the shoulder,
with people standing outside them, a few hundred feet ahead. As I drove
slowly by, I saw that in between the 2 cars was another dead raccoon with 2
live babies lying on top of it. As my wife got teary eyed, all I could
think of was the babies raccoons saying "Wake up, Mommy. Please wake up!"
I gotta admit, it was a pretty sad sight.
Sure it does...
1 - We saw the dead raccoons while driving to a farm.
2 - The farm serves as a day-hab for disabled adults.
3 - My wife is in charge of the greenhouse and vegetable gardens at the
4 - My wife wants me to build raised garden beds to make it easier for her
clients to work the gardens.
5 - I needed to measure the garden areas so I would know what to build.
6 - I will be building the raised gardens beds with the same tools that I
use to repair my home.
