You know what, the heck with the nay sayers, you know what you are doing and why, and that's all that counts.

Thanks for the update, I was really wondering myself, one of my favorite quotes from Charles M. Schulz in one of the old paper back Peanuts books, I treasured as a kid, "You're a good man Charlie Brown ! LOL

Strange things happen when you help others sometimes, I was doing a similar thing to help our long time friend and farmer/neighbor, and often times it was an early run with the tandem sileage body truck, which kept some cash flowing for him, the run did not take long, but I could not get to the other job at the time which was a barn rebuild, with a couple of seemingly decent hired hands at our place. Tough framing job, I started by myself, these 2 guys came on and one of them, started giving me a bunch of crap, even on days I was there at start up, he just could not get past it, mouthed off again and caught me just right, I had him on the ground on flat on his back, with a framing hammer wanting to make contact if you get my drift, it got settled right there, and that was that, some people just don't get it, so darned selfish, burning the candle at both ends aint no easy task sometimes, bitter cold outside too, it meant an awful lot to me not to bail on this farmer, I know he always appreciated what I did and that was better than anything I can think of at the end of the day.

These people are never worth their salt just the same, same fools, while I was laid up, made a mistake and should have leveled up the skirts on the posts, for the trusses to bear on as the building had settled, well we had to block up perlins, pull some perlins and all the extra labor was on us, I had decided to let the idiots/hotshots just run with the job, was tired of fighting with people about stupid common sense things, including with my father, was his place, was just trying to help get it rebuilt and all the while knowing, even these experienced hands, well just the one, was kind of a jerk at times. All of us could have suffered injuries like Steve, from the heights we worked, the job was no fun. I'll never do another one like it as long as I live and we did not need distractions like someones attitude, the guy really gave it to me for not being there on time, as if he signed my check, all the while knowing that I was helping a guy get through a tough time before they probably got up in the morning.
