  • Kay’s Branch News: It’s tough to keep up with the Jones

    The new light looked so good I decided to go a step further and see about putting new vinyl siding on the house. I was pointing toward spring, but thought I would get a couple of estimates. Before I knew what was happening, I had a salesman here from Sears and had contracted for the job. I chose a sage green with white trim and was still thinking they wouldn’t start until maybe March. Oh no, the salesman said, they will begin in a couple of weeks.
    I thought the man was crazy - ripping off the siding of my house in December and working with vinyl in 35-degree weather.
