    Can you believe it .................

    I got a secretary now. Jarrod went and hired this sweat looking young 30's something to help me out in the office. My desk is clean and organized, unbelievable ! Never had one of them.
    I think I'm going to love 2012.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Somebody is making way to much money

    No pictures, it didn't happen
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Larry you are so right on. I hate desk work , handling the money or even doing the pick up and delivery. I like doing the work and the estimating. Between her and the book keeper I think I can manage LOL

    That's the patina, man. People pay extra for that stuff.

    Congrats on the new hire, Dave.

    BTW, I'm guessing you meant sweet young thing instead of sweat young thing. Big difference, especially when it comes to women.

    Hey want a minute ! I got that desk from this old lady the 1st year I went into business 82. This elderly deep spoken Irish lady wanted her kitchen painted so she could sell her town home and move into a retirement home. I asked her if she was getting rid of things in the move and she said yes. I asked if she had a desk; yes I do. I did the painting and she gave me the desk. She started writing a check and I told her she did not have to do that. The kitchen painting was only $350. She said that old desk I only paid $33 in 1930 its not worth any more then that to me, I owe you money, I asked her what else she was getting ride of She said you may need a lamp. Nice Roosevelt brass desk lamp with green shade. $15 buck then she she said she had a Ceder chest and I said ok. But she still insisted on writing me a check. I told look that old oak table you have early 1800"s is that something your getting rid of and she said yes. OK I'll take it and you are not writing me a check. We finally came to an agreement. For that memory the desk will stay like it is with all the 3 boys saw makes , coffee spills and knife stabbing. This thing has CHARACTER !

    With that story, I can see why you're not gonna refinish the desk.
