    recieved the call today

    Well it was yesterday at noon and from my old employer the school district. back to my old job with the district. New boss was totally understanding and regretted loosing me as he said I was the only one that knew what he was doing on the job site. I have been working on a new condo project inside an old dilapidated 138 yr old brick heritage building. Been a real challenge as we have been the third contractor firm on the site as the past two have walked off the job in frustration. I will post some pics of it later today as today is my last day.

    It's great news as I am too old to be running with the 20 yr olds any more. Just can't keep the pace like I use to. I was laid off due to the governmment cut backs 2 yrs ago and had a temp call back last summer and laid off again. I have been struggling with bad knees and a bad back for the past two years. So it is getting the job that I need at this time in my life, till I retire.
