Our morning started out as usual and we were at our jobsites by 7 am. Everything was wet from all of the rain we had received the night before.
Our crew went to the house we had checked out the day before and while we waited for the material to rebuild the roof, walls, doors and windows, to be delivered, we started to remove the remnants of the old roof above the back two rooms.
It started to rain quite heavily by 8 am, so both crews stopped for about an hour, while we waited for the rain to end.
We worked until almost 4 pm and then headed back to camp because it was a special day and we wanted to celebrate. It was Mary’s birthday and we wanted to take her out for supper so that she didn’t have to cook. I’m sure everyone joins me in wishing Mary a happy birthday.
We went to Bubba Gumps and had a nice meal. The staff surprised Mary by singing a special happy birthday song for her. Daniel recorded a video of it. Its not available, yet, for me to post but as soon as I have been able to copy it to a drive on the internet, I will let you know and I will post a link to it.
After supper we went to the local street market and several of the volunteers bought some souvenirs there. I won’t spoil the surprise by telling you what everyone bought. The can show you when they get back home.
