There have been some characters working on our house...

...but this spouting hanger takes the prize in eccentricity. He introduces himself as "Stumpy the Great," offers to sell you his business every ten minutes, and keeps up a running commentary if you are anywhere within hearing distance. We had fun the day he came over.

"HEY, did you just take my picture? That will cost you $50."

Dad and Conrad were huffing and puffing to put the pool away in the vicinity where he was working.

He looked down and laughed at them and said, "Why didn't you take the water out? Then it wouldn't be so heavy."

So now you have a taste of what Stumpy the Great is like. The only way to find out what he's really like is to hire him to hang some spouting for you.

I take it this isn't the first time you've heard about "Stumpy the Great"? :-)
