    I get blamed for everything......

    I can come and build you a shop, and I do quality work as you can see from my last one.

    No, can't blame Larry for any part of that one......that is all 100% Gods doing....yep, that's it.

    It was just about a year ago, I was building that 40 x 64 pole barn for a customer. Had it all ready on a Thursday to set trusses, crane was scheduled for Tuesday. Had all the braces in and set for Tuesday.

    Getting ready to go to church on Sunday morning, all dressed in a suit and tie ready to go out the door when the phone rings, a neighbor next to the job site called to tell me that very strong wind hit the barn and it was about to go down. The wind snapped and busted the braces, pulled nails right out of the posts and stakes.....it was a hard direct hit and being the barn sat up on top of a hill with no protection didn't help. So the boys and I got in our workin clothes, grabbed chains and cables and commenced to straightening it back up.

    We saved the barn as you can see.

    Oh my insurance company said they would cover materials and labor to make it straight, plumb and level again......then go after my customers insurance company....WTH?....what did my customer have to do with this whole mess?

    I wouldn't do that to my customer, so I ate the extras it took to make it right again. Someday that customer wants a new house, and they were thankful I didn't turn it in to their insurance co.

    So now we get to how it is all the Ashmans fault...

    Hmmm, seems to me that when Chuck just *had* to get a new festool saw, he said it was all *my* fault! Even blamed me to his wife! Do I sense a pattern here?

    Thanks,

    Bill
