Probably why he's keeping me out of the future plans. I still plan on setting them up with a website and doing some advertising for them though. It cant hurt, and thats more for my dad.
My dad and I have talked since then about it and he got a little emotional and told me he was sorry about how everything was turning out. I told him not to worry about me and to just keep doing what he needs to do for himself. If things go sour though, I can point my finger in my brothers ******* face and tell him off. Hopefully I wont have to do that though. lol
Since then enough work has come in that they decided to keep the ball rolling and take things on a month by month basis. I know they just did a 70 yard wall this past week which isn't too shabby, depending on how many hours my brother milked out of it that is (I shouldn't talk **** though, he's out in the cold and I'm not). My dad told me that a job they did last month turned out fucked up now though. The guy lives in the city and was building his vacation/weekend home here in CT and is having problems with the bank. Guy owes $19k and I guess they are getting suited up to take some legal action and put a lien on the house.
I've taken the opportunity to stop worrying about something that's out of my hands and start concentrating more on my own business. I also have something new in the works that is close enough to the concrete work, but far from the labor that's involved. Right now I'm just in the works of setting everything up, but hopefully by next month I'll know if there's a market for it or not. In the meantime I'm getting by with the money I make from my GM dealership liquidation sales. Thankfully sales have been picking up and I'm selling more of the higher priced items rather than the little $10-$20 sales.
Thanks for checking in man!
