Default hello from Indiana

My name is Bill. I am still in my "startup phase" of being my own boss. 2 yrs ago I decided to start a company called Rental Rehab. It's been a rough first couple of years but I think painting is my favorite trade.

It's kinda theraputic to have a brush in hand edging a wall. Like meditation i guess. Just me and my brush.

And then the phone rings... Lol

I used to be a one stop shop, but it was too much too fast. So I eliminated all other services temporarily, to focus on the trade I like most.

Funny thing happened when I did that. My clients stood by me. 1 actually gave me more work.

So here I am ready to soak it up like a wooster brush.

Love the Floyd too. For 5 years, we'd venture to Noblesville. Local farmers would have there property set up to accommodate campers; park & walk to the venue. Good times. Love the stories of people going to Deer Creek,In. only to find out they are hours away.

I was there when the fence came down. I went to all within 500 miles of Cincy from 85 on. Even spent three days in the mud and rain in alpine Wisconsin. Those were the days. Stole my face right off my head.

Yeah I'm kinda partial to my wooster lindbecks (2 1/2 & 3 angles).

I'm a gen x'er from the 90's. Not much good music from that decade. Just can't beat some ac/dc, gnr or metallica.

Im from evansville, never went to the creek for music as it always came to us (roberts stadium).
