I use a Mission Cool Core, Fathers day gift. Releases the water much slower than a towel and it actually works.

How is everybody doing? Another crazy hot humid day. At least the rains held off until we finished today. Anybody try those towels you just have to snap to keep them. We've been using the gel filled bandanas and they just don't stay cold long enough. Some poor guy was on the news about getting his whole trailer stolen. Family guy with wife and kids. Feel bad for them. He probably lives hand to mouth and didn't have insurance. So tired of scumbag thieves.

I tried to compile a list of providers in areas I don't cover so I could offer referrals. Nobody on that list from those areas is still in business 2 years later.

I hear the busy. I'm up to 3 two man crews and 2 pool techs. I spend most of my time in the shop or filling in for somebody. I would like just 1 week where everybody is on time, doesn't call out and nothing breaks.

:-) Keep wishing because that'll probably never happen. I'm still solo, and I don't know if I want employees. Too many headaches.

3 were family that needed help after job loss. I already broke off a chunk to help a nephew start up. Increasing services and improving gear are next on list.
