Well huggybear paid me. That was good. I didn't work in September. Well 25 hours on a roof job and the guy stiffed me.

October was good. I got to work on some very nice high end trim for High Point University. I don't get why the president of a school like HPU needs such a huge room for his suite. Two conference rooms; a dramatic entry way (foyer or whatever). It's just a ridiculous space or perhaps waste of space.

Here's the rub.

For what it cost to build this "Presidential Suite" and the "1924 Prime Steakhouse" one could feed many hungry children in High Point, North Carolina.


Getting Paid

I found some work from a former supervisor (Warthog) that is in business for himself now.

The work is at High Point University. He is subcontracting for Frank L Blum Contracting. I was paid last week for three days. Today he told me he won't be able to pay me until the 25 or 26th of this month.

Okay that is a week's hold back and that is not uncommon. However, the only other guy Warthog has working for him told be he has waited three months to get paid.
