Some months ago, we were considering replacing the roof on our barn. One of our neighbors does a lot of work for us. I asked him if he might be interested in this job. I got a text back, “No roofs”.
It’s nine months later, now. A friend is interested in a house near here. My neighbor knows a lot about the area so I texted to ask if they knew anything about this particular house. He did.
Turns out, it’s the man’s uncle’s house. The brother of the man who sold us our house. Apparently he was a bridge builder. He worked on suspension bridges…walked ‘cross beams all the time. But then one day he was up on the roof of his house; a house he built. He was checking for damage after a storm.
As he was getting off the roof onto the ladder, he fell and broke his neck. He died three months later. No one could believe it. He had so many chances to fall and then he falls from a roof?
What do you make of things like this?
