That sucks..... I've been out of work for over a year now. Finding anything I'm qualified to do is a pain in the arse. Used to be, I'd get job offers three or four a week. Now that I need a job, nothing. Kinda like being single, when you have no girl friend not a one seems to give you a second look. Soon as you do have one, you gotta beat them off with a stick.

Yep, The wife and I are very fortunate as well. She has a great new job, I enjoy what I do as well. I did nothing to deserve all the good things I have today .
 
I gotta get ready, back later

Bridge certified.
 
Probably don't want to hearit but maryland has some of het best orads in the nation.
Just about the time they deteriorate to he level of PA's best roads MD will plane off a couple of layers and repave!  Seems like the major interstates get retopped annually, in truth I think it is bi-annual resurfacing.  Gotta be jobs in Maryland!

Billy,
You should come out and check out Oregon and Washington. Or do it online, here in the NW they are building new roads, resurfacing all the time. You might wanna look into it anyway. I was in the Teamsters and Laborers both for years when I was younger...Now Im just a poor meek little engraver, heavy sigh!Sad

In defence of the three guys standing around while one digs the hole, and having some experience with a shovel. They're taking turns, we just don't see them change out. Oh! I almost forgot, one guy never gets in the hole; he's the supervisor.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

negative, we got paged out a to house fire at 0650 and then when i got home i wolfed down a bowl of cereal and took my boys to pre school. came back home picked up my wife and daughter and went grocery shopping, then i picked up the boys and went home. ate lunch and then spent the next 3 hrs on our fire dept computer. We are going to be using an online reporting system to send them to the state, so i had to enter a whole bunch of data in starting at ground zero basically. When that was done i had to go help my brother in law and father in law get our fish houses off the lake.  this week wont be a good one for working on them, my wife works late tonight, she has ladies night out with her co workers tomorrow night, and then she works late friday and then works saturday morning. i may get some done on saturday afternoon.
