You might be a redneck if.......or the sunflowers and the caulk job

Here are a few pics of the sunflowers on the south side of the garage. I don't think they are going to make it before the first frost comes though. We have had some pretty crappy weather here the last few months. It has been 5 to 10 degrees below normal most of the summer. These bad boys are getting ripped out of their blooming cycle and I wont see any seeds from them.

My dusty ass up on a ladder painting the neighbors windows.

Just a shot of the roofers and the new roof.

Ok, this has to be one of the worst caulk jobs in that last 10 years of human history. So this falls under you might be a read neck if... your bathroom tub has one helluva professional seal job like this.

Here is my excuse; the old stuff had like a L channel that ran around the parameter of the tub, it was leaking and I could never get the black mold scrubbed off. So I picked up some caulk, (notice it is like brilliant white in color?) I really didn't think about the color at the time. I was just interested in the sealing capabilities of the product. Scored on the sealabilty! blew it on the color matching.

Then I get in there and start working the caulk trying to spread it out and make it look "purdy" Jezz, what a mess! this stuff was drying as quick as I could squezze the shit out of the tube. Honest I wasn't drinking! but the only thing missing from the photo to make it purely a redneck job, was a pile of emtpy beer cans and an old cooler in the corner.

Mine (in Chicago) have gone to seed but I'm hoping global warming keeps it warm enough to enjoy a few more blooms.

Keep your fingers crossed you don't get frost.
