How I spent my summer vacation

Perhaps it would make more sense to say “how my 40 companions spent their summer vacation,” because what they did was a lot more important than what I did. I mostly stood around and watched, and lent some chaperoning service, while they replaced a roofed porch, repaired two roofs, a deck and three sets of stairs, built a 20-foot-high retaining wall, removed and replaced the deteriorated bottom of the backside of a house and did exterior painting and cleaning and extensive yard work.
