Hope you're a whole lot better Dennis.

Good luck with the insurance company Doug, they're a bunch of weasels that cherfully take your money and then find some fine print that says you're not covered when you need it. :realmad:

Speaking of crazy weather, the early Dec snow just finally melted and we just got another dump of snow, about a foot of it. :knockout: :knockout:

Hey Doug
Ya long commute LAX right at 4 hr's door to door.
They Tell me I can work 4 10s and then make deals to work it all in three days have 4 off. If I can do that once or twice a month it wont be to bad. They hired locally off the street out here twice this past year I just wasn't lucky enough to get an interview so I am hoping I can get Transfer out here in a Year or two maybe till then I can commute.
Looking for a room mate or affordable efficiency now cant believe the prices they want for a one bedroom??? I used to rent a whole two bed room house in Long beach for $600 a month in the late 90s

That commute will certainly make for a long day, sure hope you can get a transfer soon Dennis. Hopefully it's a really good job so it makes it worthwhile.

The shop is certainly coming along, still have a ton of work to do on the outside before I can get to work on the paint booth bay, Currently that pay has a mile of siding and half a mile of pine for the soffits :knockout:

The snow is almost all gone and I sure hope that's the end of it this year, it's been a total pain :splat:

Can't wait to see some more pics Doug :rockon: :rockon:
