Default Work, Work and more Work

Well, just a little up-date, the new French doors are in and just need to be painted, The roofer showed up today at 2:00 P.M. and I swear half of mexico is here...I wanted to go out side and yell INS, but the wife said wait till there done. Not nice of me to say that, cause when these guys come to work, they freakin work....of course the bonus money helps....But there moving right along. New siding will be bid out next week, I want everything done before the new pool gets put in, then it's time to go fishin.

NO RAIN, NO RAIN....cold yes....but NO RAIN.

I did that to a friend that was building a house several years ago. As I approached him standing in the front yard I took my wallet from my back pocket and just waved it and 3 Mexicans jumped off the back of the roof and ran into the woods. The fact that I had on my Ray Bans that day probably helped. It was funny as hell at the time but he got all over me about delaying his roof by a day……..

Its the middle of winter here and in the develoment around the 'block" they are building (a national home development corp.) like crazy and have to admit - have never seen mexican carpenters in these parts but I think that's what they all are - any yes they do seem to work like crazy and the workmanship seems as good as anywhere else....Apparantly they don't mind the cold - makes you wonder where are all the locals - are they being displaced or are they that busy???? The times they are a changing......
