You deserve a BIG thanks

My Dad and Uncle have been working for weeks on my house.  They have stained my cedar siding, changed my screened porch into a 3-season porch, put a new side garage door, fixed my garage roof and rain gutters, helped me carry things out of my house so I filled a dumpster and they drive over 100 one -way back and forth at least 3 times a week to do all this.  I have offered to have them stay; however, they feel being brothers that 24/7 is over the top for them.  Besides the fact, that my Dad is 70 years old he really is a work horse.  He went to college and has a BS in Agriculture and then spent his life being a potato farmer so he is accustomed to working LONG hours.  I didn't see much of him while I was growing up so I was telling my Uncle, I have spent more time with my Dad this summer than I probably did my entire childhood, and he agreed.
I will give this card to one of them, and make another one for the other.  I created the background with a Tim Holtz stencil.  I put Glossy Accents on the glasses and paint roller.  I can't tell you how much stain those guys went through, but the house looks much better.  The sentiment is from TLC.
