Thanks guys.

Bill, Ive decided not to let him set anymore tile. . Hes gonna play major league baseball.. He's 9 now. As much as I love setting, I dont want him to have to go through the BS that I do. I know there is BS with anything. But some days, you just wanna shoot yourself..

hey Scott-- hopefully, you're right. But you'll find out when he gets older that you may not have a choice. I know MY father didn't want me to get into setting tile either, and here I am (numb as a STUMP!! )

Scott, nice looking boy. I've known guys that didn't get down on their knees to set tile and grout. They claimed it was easier, although they didn't have a gut out front to deal with.

Thanks Dave.

Bill, Im hoping he doesnt take this route. I bust my hump to give him more opportunities than I had. So I guess time will tell. What ever he chooses, it will be ok with me.

Hi Jerry, good looking group although the 3 on the right are looking for trouble, I can tell.

John K, sorry, I didn't see your last post. The guys I'm talking about were thin guys. They would squat down and it didn't bother them at all.

Dave you hit the nail on the head Hahahahahaha. Well, I think I can convince these guys to help me out. Of course my plan is to eventually give them all their own crews and maybe get a legacy of tile men goin' They just don't know it yet. We'll see how it all pans out

Nope no flying for me. All I get to do is patch a few bullet holes when they get 'em

I see what you mean, Davy. I've seen that surly look before. Jerry, best thing you can do as soon as you get home is lay one up alongside the heads of those three.

Seriously, though, fine looking group and a good lookin' mamma.
