Thanks for the comments and encouragement. I got home early this evening, 7:30. Only a 12 hour day. : ) If I didn't have my 10 Y/O daughter with me, I would have worked later. My wife and son are on a week long Boy Scout camping trip in Va. Which was planned months ago. Or she would not have went with me being so busy. I kinda hate taking her to construction sites (no good language lessons) can be learned there. Lol But because mostly every one we know works during the week so we have no one to watch her. That we trust anyway. So I have to take her. The General Contractor that I get work form has all Polish guys, so I asked them to only curse in Polish when she's around. It's been ok, but I still pretty much have her stay in the van or outside reading or playing her games. One more "father & daughter" work day tomorrow, then the wife will be home. Back to Hartford CT this weekend. Rough wiring passed inspection with flying colors. This weekend I plan to do a new 400 amp 3 phase service. Then I won't have to go back for 10-14 Days i hope. Still lots of work closer to home in PA during the week.

You see rite through me Rich, yes I'm a lot happier. I was worried there for a while. Things were slow, the worst in 15 years that I've worked for myself.

Now it's time to take all I can get and build that bank account back up to a comfortable level once again.

I sure will Joe, my son Tyler is already talking about going. Unless I'm struck by lighting and killed, I'll be there.

Today I took a little break from working and drove about 20 mins away to stop by and see member Hugh at his tractor pull 4H event.

Gee, I guess busy & $$$ = happy! :thumbs:

 

P.S. Ken not sure if you got my response to your email, but I'm busy enough close to home, not to mention my other season is just around the corner, besides the inspectors in CT don't like me :D :worshippy1:

 

Few years back did a federal housing project just outside Hartford, great money but local supply houses seem to what to take advantage of "out of state" contractors :smilewink:

I sure will, but its been 4 years since I've done anything in NC.

And I don't recall that town of Cherryville. So I didn't do that one.

Started my 4 one this evening. Staying overnight here and hitting it hard tomorrow.
I'm about 20 miles south of York Pa in a town called New Freedom. Not far from the Maryland border. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1376448592.900527.jpg
