Teh Squeaky Wheel
Creepy-crawly greetings from Happy Larryville, Wheelizens!
Looks likely that I’ll be L.A.-bound sometime next month to manage a couple of modest -- but ticklish -- jobs for Jim teh Roofer.
And another project which we bid in February of last year has awakened from its slumber. Need to review the numbers and get a revised proposal to the property manager today.

Good morning, GN!
Great news, Fatwa! Looking forward to seeing you again. Zigs!!!!!!!!!
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Is today Cockroach Tuesday? Should I go back to bed until Wednesday?
Fatwa -- great news!
“Well, yes, that was the price last year, but the new California Green Carbon ® Graft in Trade laws have gone into effect and we’ve had to raise our prices.”
Hai, Sven ‘n’ Paddy!
I’m looking forward to the trip. Seeing some folks, making some extra cash, eating my weight in steak burritos from family-owned joints. Plus, I think the woman who’s “overseeing” both of those modest jobs might be a good source of work, assuming we impress her. (Jim has met her, I’ve only dealt with her on the phone; we both agree she’s really sharp, knows a lot about construction projects and has a good sense of humor.)
I’m down with having a Bullet and a beer at Zig’s. (Even nicer would be seeing you and Mrs. Sven.) 😉
Any change in price will probably be modest, as expenses haven’t increased that much in fifteen months. And there are at least two other bidders, so we need to be competitive.
Plus, we wants the preciousssss…aka feelthy lucre.
Update: We reviewed the numbers and decided we could stick with the original price we quoted last year.
Really cool, Fatwa. Once you have a better idea of exact dates, let us know.
Will do, señor.
Really terrible news about Bob Owens of Confederate Yankee and Bearing Arms. Just awful.
I was saddened to read about that.
I see the professional left is having another urgent blowout over Trump’s firing of Comey. Sad. Very sad.
Apparently he was in L.A. for an appearance; it was cut short after the word got out. One of the newschoppers picked up his motorcade heading down the 405 back to LAX.
(Somebody took a still from the video and photochopped a white Bronco into the motorcade.)
I was kind of hoping he’d be denied use of the FBI plane for his return trip. 👿
I am amazed though at how this administration can flirt with the apocalypse every single day…to hear the left talk anyways. My god, it’s crisis after crisis after crisis. All these people are going to look like hell in 4 years as they age 20.
