    You forgot...

    and at the same time, he unloads the safe and cash register of all the 10's and 20's and sifts through the old sofa for loose change counting it miserly, occasionally peeking through the curtains muttering "I sure do like me them chicken wings...I wonder when I'll be able afford me a building sign"

    Does that budget include permits, PA 6% sales tax, beer, digging in clay, dust masks, 10' poles, more beer, inspectors fees, a new headlight for night driving [only have one], baby sitter fee, still more beer, membership at the local 'Fire Company' for after the install, oh yeah.... beer at the Fire Hall and any other incidentals that might creep up that you or I didn't mention ?? :rolleyes:


    :help: Wow, we need a bigger beer fund for this job.... $865. won't cut it. That only leaves $130 for the whole sign, installation and all those other things I mentioned.... hafta find cheaper stuff. Maybe we could talk 'Cheap Jim' into a single sided sign and prop it up against one of the posts.... save paint, vinyl and some installation time. Yeah, now $130 might do it....:cool:

    ok people... this is cool, so let's not let it wither away... I had to check the closing date & decided to re-post it for others so we don't wait too long to get involved.

    We're up to 13 entries at this time.

    Not trying to discourage multiple entries, but for you guys and gals submitting more than one entry, you may find that you end up splitting your votes and finish further down the list. Just food for thought.

    All entries must be in by 7 days from now.
