Default Latest Job

I’ve been stuck for the last 3 weeks, at the USMA at West Point, installing new burners on two boiler in the main gym. 3 weeks in a row, on the road, in a straight stretch is too much for the GNAP, it’s time to take the rest of the year off.

Dang Jack, I was wondering about you last night, hadn't seen you around for so long. I was thinking of calling Norm to find out what was going on but then I realized I'd have to call you first to get his number.

Garden Spot?? I thought if God gave the world an enema, the Kingston/New Paltz/Newburgh area is where they would insert the tube.
