Only my best customers call me for repairs on their fireplaces in August. That seems to be true on this board as well.
But ---- Labor Day is coming, and with that a whole raft of fireplaces that people can't get to light up.
I'm seriously considering dumping my repair business and retiring on my well gotten gains at the end of the year, or perhaps in March, 2007 or so. I really have no use for more money and only the government seems especially used to to collecting money from me.
