Default I am putting the tools back on.

I am putting the tools back on for a whole house rewire. Pretty easy one and I probably shouldn't have taken it but it is what it is. I do small service calls all the time but haven't done a real project in years. I think it will be kinda fun again.

I need journeymen as good as I was. It's the only thing I lament about being a foreman.

I have the tool belt from my apprenticeship and it still buckles into the same hole. It’s either the skinny gene or the result of being a starving contractor .

I don't know if I like this...


I may have to insist that you use one of those Life Alert remotes you wear around your neck.

The truth.


Doing jobs you want to is where it's at. Too bad those are usually far and few between....
