Default Howie from Mass

Hi, I been snooping from behind the bushes for awhile, peering in your windows. Decided I'd get up the gumption to come out into the light.

I'm Howie from one of the "tonier" towns South of Boston. I've been painting for more than a few decades. I'm mostly a soloist but I got other friends in the business who run the same type of operation as me and we collaborate on the larger jobs. We're relaxed about it all, stay legal, and offer excellent work at a very fair price.

I see I have a different business plan than a lot of people here. I figure these are tough times to be caught without something tried and true. I'd like to be able to be sharing some things that have helped me keep my head well above water for 30 odd years. And I look forward to learning from the masters and adjusting my own methods.

be seeing you

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

MONT BLEU ! ? Ya mean the SPEED BUMP !?!?! You're funny.

I actually learned to ski there, well there and the local golf course in Dedham. I still can't believe Old Blue has a chair lift now. When I was a kid it was three rope tows to the "summit".
