Work is next scheduled for next Tues. I’m sitting here without a boat. After checking on river conditions, I so wanted to be out there in a kayak. Those customers who do not care one bit about my convenience. I had 3 days before the fourth open and empty. The way this works is, it cost more to meet your schedule. My time is money and now you owe me, period. I’m very good at fixing things, it’s what I do. No more free estimates. No more rescheduling unless it makes it more convenient for me. When your toilet is broke, It ain’t my problem, my toilets works fine. I don’t care if you shit in your yard. When your living room ceiling is on the floor, It ain’t my problem. I was available Monday to repair it. But, you were not. It’s still not my problem. Feel free to call on my competitors. They might even answer your call, I might add that they charge way more than I and the only fix things half as good. And by the way, the guy they call to fix plaster is…… wait for it, Me. But they pay on time at the end of the day, in full… I sure hope you have to call me on the fourth for an emergency call….. It’s a double rate day. I got the sewer snakes and the water jets all ready to go. Some one some where is gonna back up a sewer on the fourth, happens every year.
That’s the life of a handyman. Some times I wish I could keep shut of this type of work. I got a tip for my long term readers, NEVER put green beans and mashed potatoes down the disposal at the same time. It makes a cement like material that kills the disposal motor. Happens every holiday. That gets the angst out of the way.
I’ll be dumpster shopping for suitable materials for my boat build. I’m putting free back into independence day. YEHAW! On another note, I found a couple of videos to illustrate why I respect the Yough river so much. The first has the water table at 1.7 feet and the other has the water table at 3.87 feet.
The rock features called Camel and Turtle aren’t even able to be seen in the last video. Both vid’s are of the lower yough loop. There is still more white water after these. down to rivers end and beyond. But rivers end is the last take out point they where the tour bus will pick you up at. Rivers end to me might has well be a beginning of the trip. Never a dull moment.
