Little Buddy,
 
Didn't you get arrested last week for possession?  It must be the truth because I heard it on NPR?  They wouldn't lie would they?  What are you doing out?

Subject: Masonry Parapet Walls

Working on a project where the block & brick parpet wall is bulging at a line approx. where the timber joists bear. Wall is about 3 feet exposed to south, north facing, over 50 years old, old stone coping which leaked (has been repaired).  Generally all the criteria to have a troubled parapet wall and it is troubled. What is the fix for this wall? Remove and rebuild brick and block parapet? Any suggestions for remedy in the "fixed" wall.
