    Perks of the Job

    Did about 5 hours of driving today to go between three quick jobs that took maybe two hours combined. But one of the stops was to hang a frame with a hinged glass top (for signage) in the ladies locker room at a busy Gold's Gym in Thousand Oaks.

    So there are a few benefits with this job.

    Reminded me of visiting my sister when she was living in the girl's dorm at college. "Man in the hall!"

    Yes, but your supposed to give warning before entering, not on your way back out

    Maybe you could take one of your turned HF's and make a hat out of it to wear when you're out on the job. Just pin some business cards to it and voila!

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    You should hear some of the Stories Jake tells me about living in a co-ed dorm at ISU
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I spent the night in the women's dorm at NAU in Flagstaff once. I'd be all for co-ed dorms if I was on college.

    we are just a bunch of old men.

    when I went to visit my son in his apt on campus once, one of his roomates GFs came running out of a shower to cross the hall into their room, and then as she ran past naked, she apologized and said, oh, sorry, didnt know anyone was here. Duh, she was showering in her BFs college apt with 3 other roomates.
    And she apologized.............hah!, I forgot about all the hours I sat in traffic.
