Most of you will remember a couple years ago a friend of mine had a bad accident and broke his neck ... and at the same time he was in the hospital, his baby daughter was having heart surgery ... so I cooked meals for his family for a couple months until he & his wife got back on their feet. No big deal. So ... a few days ago I was talking to him & mentioned that my heating bill was extremely high ... and today he and his brother pulled into my driveway with a load of insulation on a trailer ... and blew my attic full of new insulation!!! They wouldn't take a dime from me ... only asking for a couple of cooking lessons. Pretty cool, huh? Here's a couple pics:
