Bottom line,if you like something talk about it.If you do not like something and you want it to dissipate do not talk about it.
Deserves repeating.

Watching the"contractor" working next door to my jobsite take 2 hours, with a helper, to hang an entry door in the addition they are building.

I was quite surprised. But I felt a whole lot better after 2 days of eating twinkies, bananas and granola bars in between the horrible food that they serve at the truck stops.

Another thing that I love...

I love climbing the apple tree with my son, and I love that my wife made apple pie with the apples we picked.

I love apple pie.

I love it when the customer tells me, "Its PERFECT! Just what I dreamed about." It's great to be able to make people happy.

Re: Things I Love


When I'm starting to feel uneasy for no good reason about a recent project, thinking maybe it wasn't what they had envisioned or hoped for, and the customer emails me a glowing "thank you it's perfect I'm telling everyone" out of the blue.
