Very nice! Considering the heat here, I'm sweating just looking at the photos. Dusty crawlspaces are not know for their ventilation or comfort, wearing overall couldn't have helped keeping cool either. You did a great job!
You want to hear the funny part of the story.
So Wells, the homeowner, before I ever even go up to look at his bees in Platte City is telling me on the phone how he doesn't have a whole lot of money, being retired and all and on a fixed income. Now you know me and how I am about always charging enough, but about that time schawee is posting up that nice video and story about helping out the old lady with bees in her wash house and I'm thinking I’ve had a good year, I can do a good turn and help old Wells out.
Anyhow, I go out to look at the colony and Wells has got him a fine old Victorian house and has about a 10 year old green Cadillac, in nice condition, in the driveway and I'm thinking at least he has a little money and I don't have to do the job completely for free, so after repeated grumblings and protests by Wells, I let him dicker me down to about half of what I would normally charge for a tough job.
Long story short a couple of days later I'm depositing the check Wells has written me and I notice Wells' name is also the name of the bank on the check. Turns out the old codger owns the local bank up there in Platte City.
