Hello Dear Reader!
Monday was our first day on the job site on Inspiration Drive in Sebring, FL. We surprised Frank, our site supervisor, with St Luke’s T-shirts. The question everyone was asking was “Can I be Frank?” Click on the following photos to meet our 9 team members and find out our Top 9 Reasons to do a Habitat For Humanity build…
At breakfast, the “2 Pancakes in 1 Minute” machine set the tone for our culinary theme today. Our wall panels were like S’mores without the chocolate and needed toasting (burning out smelly styrofoam). Meanwhile the indoor tile crew whipped up some “frosting”(mortar) and continued to decorate the floors.
We also lost power. No electricity? No problem! Frank to the rescue with two generators and 800 feet of extension cords.
The Gingerbread House builders were excited to get the first wall panels in place. Holding up the wall in the gusty wind was important, and to the unsuspecting eye it looked like a heist with guns (caulk and nailers). Despite the hullabaloo below, Carrie the Riveter got the job done.
Lynn called the blue port-a-potty the Magic 8-Ball, even going so far as to make people ask a question before entering (Will the fire ants bite again today?). After Frank and Diane shook the “8 Ball” while Lynn was in it, it’s now called the Leaning Tower of “Pee-sa.”
Cindy just kept working and tiled herself into the corner. “Nobody puts Baby in a corner!” Lori always seems to be tiling in the bathroom. We’re concerned. And now Diane seems to be in the bathroom as well. Perhaps it’s something they ate?
And finally, Robert came back to visit us again (we think we’re his favorite crew). We’re like one big family, and it’s wonderful to serve together.
