Here goes

Well I finally decided to pull the trigger. I've been doing masonry work for 30 some odd years. I've been partners with my brother for the past 12 years. The business has taken it's toll on me, I've had 6 surgurys in the past 10 years. I was offered a job with a large landscaping firm here running their in house masonry crews. No more trowels or hammers to deal with. They offered a great package for me and I decided to take it. This was one of those long hard decisons to make that I have been thinking about for the past few years. Wish me luck folks, the job starts March 1!

That's great news Nickie boy!

I'm sure we've all diven by a road project or something like that.
There's always a big fat guy standing around pointing to the other workers telling them what to do.

Good luck Nick
