This Cool Thing #ThursdayDoors

I’m having a new roof put on Mom’s house (now my rental property), and this guy brought the shingles. (I’ll take pictures of the roofing process when it happens because I think it’s cool.)

Oh, no, wait, that’s Jay Neilsen from Forged in Fire. Here’s the shingles guy.

This truck has a door!

It also had this awesomely awesome loader hooked on the back.

It has a kind zen door. Like, is it even there? House door in the background.

The guy could drive that baby like a champion skateboarder rides a skateboard. I was impressed.

Then he drove it up to the back of the truck and, using the magic of hydraulics, rode it up to its berth at the back of the truck.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone who looks like a celebrity.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I love watching them unload stuff with those lifts. Great doors. Happy Thanksgiving Marian.

      Glad you thought so too. The only thing I don’t like about Neilsen being on Forged in Fire is that his being there means I don’t get to see Ben Abbott. Love all the judges, though!
