    Yep, it's official she has won! Thanks everyone!

    Whoo! We did it! Will we get word from her?

    ...err, well I'm not sure I can show her this thread now! It seems to have taken that special twist that only ttlg can do properly! However, she is aware of your contributions, I made sure of that, and she has asked that I pass on her thanks to you all. She also gave me a hug, and requested that I pass that on as well, not sure she really gets how the internet works!

    Thanks alot Kolya, in an attempt to protect my keyboard from a spit-take, I shot vodka out of my nose onto my shirt. On the plus side, my sinuses are now squeaky clean. (And slightly buzzed.)

    Awww, that's fine. All we did was a few clicks. Internet hugs for her as well.

    UPDATE
    Her new roof is in progress! Tear-off is complete, as is re-sheathing, drip edging, flashing, new vents, and fancy self-sealing membrane instead of old fashioned felt paper. Tomorrow should be it, weather permitting, the shingles will go down. The crew that is doing the work clearly knows what they are doing, and just based on my knowledge of construction, I'm guessing she is getting a good $10-12K job done for free. Thanks again to you all who helped make this happen!

    Damn right! It's finished and looks great. More importantly, it will raise the value of my home! So when I smother the little monster, I can sell my house for more to cover my legal fees!

    I was somehow under the impression it was her friend's house that we shingled with our hard earned clicks. Can't smother all the old ladies, montag! They might suspect what you're kisses really mean.

    Oh, it was our neighbors roof you saved, but due to real-estate "comps" if her house is valued higher, so is mine! I would never smother her (my neighbor) because she baby-sits for free!
