    Hay all:

    as some of you know there's an Apparement Complex I have been after and today outta the blue they called...

    I had allready walked the area and knew how much I was going to bid the job for,,, so today I went up there and submitted a 67,000 a year bid.

    Looks like it will take me and 3 other guys a day to cut it.

    this rate is based on 1300.00 a week she also wanted a bi weekly bid. I bid that at 1700.00

    should know something by mid mext week

    Keep your fingers crossed for me guys
    Man I hope I get it..

    Those are nice contracts to have but they also hurt the pocket book when you eventually loose them. Hopefully your able to land it and hold on to it for years to come.

    Im still waiting for (JUST) two extra inches that I asked for when I was 16 (from God). Oh, and just a touch more girth...but that was another prayer (and, come to think about it, might have been my wifes wish for me from Santa, not God....oh well).

    Good luck to U though!
    Condos ARE great!

    Don't listen to this guy.

    That is why you add profit and bank some of it.

    If thought like that I would just sit home a suck my thumb.
