I left my heart (and liver) in Portland.
Running a bit behind on my Blogtown reading. Happy to be of service, Mr Humphrey!
Easiest and most secure method would be to build a stand for the jolly fellow. Using a piece of plyboard and two legnths of 2x4, stand the 2x4's on end with the wide side(s) facing the same direction set the plyboard on the top of the 2x4's and nail it to them on using 2 - 8p (8penny) nails per side. Take this assembly to the edge of your roof and set the plyboard on the roof with the 2x4's hanging over the edge. Set the ply to where it looks level and mark the 2x4's where they need to be cut to remain level if it were sitting on the roof. Attach your santa using some tie wire wrapped securly around his feet with holes drilled in the ply as needed.
Alternatly, you can use some drywall screws and screw them into the bottom of his feet. This is not recommended in high wind areas as they might pull free.
Go up on the roof and have someone hand you the santa and place him where you want him. Using some 1 1/2" deck or drywall screws secure the ply at the edge that contacts the roof. Then toe nail (insert at a 30 degree angle) the 2x4's to the roof using 2" screws of the same type. Do not over tighten the screws to the point where they loose grip (strip out).
After the holiday season remove the screws and lift up carefully on the roof tiles you put the screws through. Apply a small dollop of henrys roofing mastic to fill the holes and press down on the tile to seal it
T-minus 30 minutes until an ambitious go-kart track owner in Japan works those Koopa shells into his business scheme.
Could we get your thoughts on the current budget crisis?
Lemme guess, it involves Genuine Australia Cardy Ugg Boots. Is there anything they can't do?!!
Strange how we can never seem to get any" federally-earmarked money" around here for things like ceiling tiles in schools, asphalt or anything other than ridiculous nonsense like this.
If this $ absolutely HAD to be spent on "bikeway markings," then why not more bike boxes or paint for bike lanes? This seems like a waste of cash.
Couldn't this $ have been used to pave that road in SE with the muddy duck pond in the middle of it?
Wha....? The underwater bomb level in TMNT was totally kickass. It's the rest of the game that has needed to go fuck itself for the last 20 or so years. Those final levels are nigh-on impossible.
