I am tired today. We went to Ararat, NC where some in-laws live and traded labor. I tilled a 12 feet by 40 feet garden space and Johnny put new front rotors and brake pads on my wife's car. Johnny works at a parts house so he gets a substantial discount on parts.

Net results: garden space for Jackie and Johnny; new brakes for us and a sore back for Mark ;)

We went back to work for a couple of months. Most of that work was in Old Salem and Salem College. Back on the dole now and 10 weeks of benefits left.

I've been doing some work on a friends rental house to get it ready to sell. So far being unemployed has been profitable. But the slow time of year is upon us.
