It was a marathon 1/2". That's what I figured was the problem but it was Friday just after lunch I had no desire to go to the store to get a different one. I carry plenty of covers but didn't have any of the 1/2 pro dooz's
I usually use

First day of the year up on extension ladders all day was yesterday. You really find out which muscle groups you don't use that often the next morning.

Do you wear shoes with steel shanks in them when on extensions all day?

I just finished an exterior repaint of a house that had gables on all four sides. It would have been easier to reach the peaks with an extension ladder, but I don't like leaning the ladder on the freshly painted siding no matter how I cover the tops of the ladder (I did two coats), so I used my eight footer, but had to stand on the step below the top of the ladder, and hold onto the edge of the roof with one hand while painting with the other. Quite the balancing act. I never really feel the physical toll until I get out of my truck on the ride home. Then, it kicks in and I feel my age.

Yep. It was an interior ceiling in an open concept entrance way some drywallers retextured with California knockdown because of some cracks. They were supposed to leave me scaffolding to work off of. I walked in to find a few haphazardly placed 2X12 planks. Ended up using my Werner fiberglass 20' which is pretty heavy to swing around all day over handrails, etc. Then I got to roll the thing out from the ground with an 8/16' extension pole. Amazing how heavy those things get over the course of the day rolling out 3 coats.


And today I'm chopping firewood. I'm gonna be a mess tomorrow morning.

Just completed a large interior with high vaulted ceilings. I hired a young guy with a strong back, shoulders, and neck to do em’ while I concentrated on prep and walls.

Then yesterday I turn around and help my son and his business partner plant 12,600 hemp seeds. Not hard work but slow and steady all day. I definitely feel it in my lower back today. I will eventually wise up - maybe.

I hate when a customer is all hot to trot to have me paint during a specific time frame (spring break) when they will be gone on a ten day trip to Japan. Works for me too of course. But I don’t want to hear that after the work is done and I’ve submitted my bill, that they have “crunched the numbers” and just can pay me right now. Maybe they should go “sharpen their pencils” while they are at it - then stick them you know where.

I assume you meant they're saying they can't pay you right now? They could afford a trip to Japan! Go to the bank and get a damn loan and give me my damn money. Someone elses money problems should never ever be my problem.


If it's a week or something that's not a huge deal, but I'd certainly remember that the next time they call. Obviously in commercial or dealing with GCs you're expecting to wait possibly for quite a while, but residential repaints I want my money the day the jobs done.

Yep. Payment required at completion of the job is in my contract as well - which I have for this project.

I billed them when the job was done and didn’t hear anything for two weeks. So I send my typical “If you have any questions about the statement or work, please let me know.” Translation: pay your bill dammit!

Another week goes by and I get, “I haven’t even opened your bill yet. I suppose you’d like to get paid. LOL.” I just loved the LOL part.

I responded in the affirmative, two more weeks go by, then get the message about them not being able to pay me. Supposedly they will be able to do so next week but it will still be over a month since I originally billed them.

Grrrr...
