Come on. We know it must be a good one if you are guarding it so. Does it start with a rabbi, a minister, a priest and imam who join a DIY Chatroom? Can you fit a Canadian, Australian and Mexican into it? Does it have a cat involved? Jokes with cats get lots of internet traction. Do you or the cat in the joke play the piano at all?

For example. This ragged looking, three legged huge orange tabby of Canadian and Mexican lineage, with papers from both countries to prove it, walks in with an Australian accent to a bar. Here in Chicago if you want the joke to be here. With six shooters strapped to both sides he flips open saloon doors and, as he grinds out the cigar he was smoking with his good back leg.

Like Gordon Ramsey does on Kitchen Nightmares, my crew went to Detroit and fixed your building. You also have a natural hill in Detroit you did not before and because of it you are five extra feet from the evil people of Canada. I hope the bridge to Windsor can take the strain. The one from around SeaTac into Vancouver did not fare well lest week.

Anyhow here is the after and before shot. Not one animal was harmed in our work. I have to use the right leg of a mouse a bit though.
Street is a hill because in the second view the building in the back that was level is now tilted to the right.

Level? Plumb? Old age buidling practices. Now you just build by sighting things. If you are off a bit a few stories up? No biggy. The finish carpenter will wack off the door side and bottom so it amlost swings shut most of the time. Don't even mention he looks a bit like the framing contractor but with a different size nail gun.

You really want me to tweak and fix this. We both know the photo was taken, not in Detroit, but out your way where you think nothing about having hills and even mountains and erupting volcanos at times to spoil the view.

If you think its bad now, think about an early 60's Cadillac or Chrysler Imperial, especially a 2 door.
