Re: Things I Love (2)


When the f*^king stars align and karma comes around...... was bitching to a friend about rental equipment yesterday and he mentioned a buddy retiring. Basically got damn close to exactly what I need right now for stupid $.....
-Boxer 320 mini skid with bucket, auger head, 10" and 16" augers plus sets of new teeth.
-Small, 36" wide Yanmar mini-ex
-10k capacity 20' tilting flatbed equipment trailer with brakes!

Big step up for me and game changer business-wise.

Also just about manhandled a weirdo trespasser on clients property in front of them- they were mighty impressed and I scared the hell out of an a-hole. Told him I don't come on anyone's property uninvited because I don't want lead poisoning- then had to clarify I meant getting shot. Almost wanted him to do something more than just get him out of there.

Feels great relative to those days where everything goes wrong- cold beverage time!

Netflix Space Force.

Even with the occasional prerequisite cheap but funny dig at Trump, it is hilarious. They pretty much dig on everyone. Even the Dems.

Funny, funny stuff. Great cast and writing.

Good call. Definitely pokes a lot of fun at the POTUS but its hilarious.

Nice to be appreciated.

Leo -

Just wanted a send a note
of thanks for the great job you
did on our kitchen cupboards.

You saved the day !

Tony and I really thought it
would take "forever" to rectify
the problem we had with our
new frig. But you walked in so
quickly (and that was a miracle
in itself) and assessed & fixed
our problem in no time. Still
don't know how we got so lucky
that you were available
"immediately". When does that ever
happen in the craftsman trade.
We will gladly give your
name to any of out friends who
need customized woodworking.
Thanks again. You were
so appreciated.

Donna & Tony Sardo

I struggled with a few words. Most of it wasn't hard to read.

Gotta admit, even though I was once proficient in cuneiform, it was work to read that.

But worth it.

That's what my wife said too.

She really gets tired of my clients giving my any kind of praise.

And I would never call them cupboards.
