    Default Gave up the business

    It was really slow this year. When I got a call with an offer as a Government inspector, I couldn't pass it up.
    I'm still inspecting, but there is a lot I will miss about my business. On the other hand, it's kinda nice inspecting with a regular pay check and benifits.
    Good luck to all who are slow right now.

    Kevin, If you are inspecting the government, you should be able to find plenty of defects to report. Good luck.

    I spent several years inspecting County Owned buildings in Los Angeles County, many of them in the "projects". I NEVER had a problem with the "locals", but was careful about when I was on site (time of day and day of the week, and certain days of the month").

    A word of advice, if you are going to carry - grind the front sight off the gun. For the punch line to this joke, send me a private e-mail or message, it's a little graphic for public posting.

    Kevin,

    Well, OK then. That makes me feel better. While we have never met, I feel like I can rely on your opinion. Good to have you back.
