Construction talk

The Crone’s contractors are American through and through. Good ol’ boys with trucks, a fondness for beer on payday (and all days in between), and high scores at horseshoes and darts. At least two of the founding partners though, are of Irish descent. Recently, these brothers lost a favorite uncle–he was buried last Thursday. ” His son has been drunk for a week and his daughter has been in clearing out the flat screens” reported Chesapeake brother number one “I got my mom someone to take care of all my uncle’s plants–he had a house full, really huge, he’s had them for years–but they fell out so I’m going round there now to take care of it. She’s completely out of it. My uncle was her brother and they lived next door. My mom is the glue for the whole family but she’s taken this hard”  The Crone shared her condolences and said how sorry she was to hear that everyone was so upset. “We’ll just have to Irish our way through it” came the response, and the Crone knew exactly what he meant.
