I also used to hammer them dang nails in by the use of a hammer. Nowa days, I git them there shingles and I put them on a fanedangled machine they call a power ladder. I'm also too old to keep on pounding them there nails in so I got me one of them there auto matic hammers. If my feeble memory is correct, I think they call it a nail gun or something like that. Well I guess it's time for my Geritol. Good night folks.
LOL - at least you had a truck. We had to walk to school barefoot in the snow uphill both ways :)
