They can call me Sally for all I care, as long as they pay and the job is worth it.

I'm on vacation the end of next week. Off to colder climates: the Portland/ Vancouver area.

Hey - highs in the mid eighties this coming week. No humidity either. Can't get much nicer.

Gotta love those repeat customers!

My fav's are the ones that say, "we'd like to go with your recommendations".

Taking a vacation during the summer painting season??? You guys aren't real painters are you? ......just joking guys.

I may have taken a 3 day weekend occasionally, but never recall anything more than that during the summer. (Unfortunately my wife will attest to that.) Maybe that's where I went wrong.

That's what I'm saying. I take my vacations in the winter.

I'm waiting for the ultimate:

"We trust your judgment, we'll be away the week of the 25th, the keypad code is 4292, and there's a blank check signed and made out to you on the breakfast table. "

Taking holidays in summer sounds like a healthy painter to me.

On my death bed I can guarantee you I won't be looking at my family thinking, "damn I wish I would have done one more house that summer".

TJ's got it figured out.
