Whole Lotta Trouble

I'm trying to get a post up showing how I did the rebar handrail but Blogger is being a butt again and won't load my photos. So, I'll try again tomorrow. I don't really have time tonight anyway. I need to get some sleep. Didn't work on a whole lot this weekend but I did get my bathroom light fixtures ordered. Yes, I still have not installed permanent fixtures there. I'm trying to work on a lot of little things that will actually get some rooms finished. Work has been kind of dull; we're just wrecking forms. Oh, you know I mentioned a short while back that I tried to get sent to that job we have in Tennessee? Well, my boss here told me the other day, that boss called for me to come to that job. I said I'd still be willing to go but my boss said he couldn't let anyone go yet; they would have to send him a replacement. They offered a new hire (inexperienced) in my place here to my boss. My boss just laughed and said he wasn't giving up an experienced man for a new hire, so I think they decided I was not to go.
Maybe I'll have something for ya'll tomorrow.

See, you must be too good at your job ... now you are irreplaceable!

Hey FC! Well, not irreplaceable by a long shot; just experienced! But thanks for your sweet comment! Our company has downsized so drastically lately that I am one of the few senior carpenters left. And yes, they refer to me as "one of the men" or "a man" but I'm not offended. It's actually a compliment of sorts because I have become so accepted and I suppose, respected that I am just one of them.
