Default Closed up Shop / Now I need a job

Hi Folks,
I haven't been on in some time. But over the winter I have deside to close up shop. As some of you may know I got back into the painting business to help my son, then he desided to move out of the area.

So now I'm looking for work/job, anyone in south east, Ct. or southern RI area looking for help?
If you need help, contact me at coolthings [at] localnet.com

I can obviously relate to your situation-gotta do whatcha gotta do. Let me know how I can help Bill. Wish I was still painting full time, I'd team up with you since I'm in CT.

Hey Rich, why don't you team up with him and get back in the grove?

Rich,
If you got a good paying job with vacation ect. keep it. I've been there, thats one of the reasons I got out of painting years ago. Needed the health insurance. It was ok when I paid $800.00 per quater, for Blue Cross. But when the prices started going through the roof, forget. I had a small company at the time and cost just got out of hand. I wasn't into getting big. So I found a so called real job .
