    Does Ned have a roof yet?

    Let's start a lottery! How long will it be before Ned has a roof on his shop?

    I'll open with a guessed completion date of 27 May, 2008.

    Any takers?

    What do we win? Ned buy the winner a steak dinner?
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    You may be right. I actually put the year in there very reluctantly. I thought about making it 2010, but thought I'd take the risk...

    Now you guys take it easy on Ned, he is doing this as fast as he can........I think

    Ned, if this keeps up, I might have to come over there and finish that dang roof myself

    Git-R-Dun dude!

    Hmmm... to have a good bet, you need someone to set an over/under. In other words, we need a betting line...

    Anybody on here got any bookie experience?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    No bookie experience but I can handle the over/under thing. The walls of Ned's shop don't have a roof over them therefore he can't put his tools under it.
