Friday Wisdom – Building

I’ve been pulling down a garden shed all week and I’ve been learning a lot about how things are built so here’s everything I know about building:

Some construction sites have birds – cranes mostly.

We had to fire our roofer. He wouldn’t stop eavesdropping.

I tried to write a joke about construction, but it had no build-up.

High steel workers love their job, it’s riveting.

Most people are shocked when the learn how bad an electrician I am.

Our plumber said he doesn’t work on clogged sinks anymore. He said it was too draining.

The tallest possible buildings are libraries because they have so many stories.

I never tell window jokes, I wouldn’t want one to crack up.

Once I went to a party with a bunch of construction workers. I tell you, those guys know how to raise the roof.

The police arrested a construction worker, but they had to let him go because there was no concrete evidence.

Here in the high Sierra there are two seasons: winter and road construction.

I was looking at all my construction tools and I still think the shovel is the most groundbreaking.

My supper power is that I can cut wood in half by just looking at it. Yes, I saw it with my own eyes.

Awhile ago I got a job in construction but I just wasn’t strong enough so I had to give my too weak notice.

    Colorado has the same two seasons as the Sierras (as I stare at a totally unexpected May blizzard outside my windows). “Eavesdropping!” My favorite.
