    Started a renovation at a fine Napa resort. Hotel installed new carpet in our work area 2 weeks ago.

    My guys think they know everything. They don't. Paint all over new carpet. Rant over. Shower then buy the dumb asses a few rounds. Day off tomorrow, we are about 2 1/2 days ahead of schedule.

    I worked the 2 first days with them. I have a good crew but as soon as I leave they get lazy. Like I said we are good, they spent half a day cleaning carpet which was entirely unnecessary. Job needs to be done a week from now. I hope to be done Thursday. Give the boys a few days off then off to Reno for a week.

    Work. I hate going there but they are one of my best accounts. Depending on our schedule we may be able to stay a extra day or so.

    Yeah, Reno's not my favourite but what can one do. At least it doesn't look like it's snowing up there yet.

    Thats what I'm afraid of. I flew from SAC to Reno yesterday and it was cold. We need to bring our van up there so snow really sucks. I will probably fly in and the van only holds 2. We need 4. Why I want to finish the Napa job early.
    Our wallpaper guys arrived 3 hrs late today. Drove from Vegas. Told them to take as much time you need to recover but you need to put in at least 4 hrs today.

    No, I took a short vacation up there once but I didn't really like it enough to live here - also it didn't seem that much less expensive than Vegas really.

    It's kind of junky. But so is Vegas. We will be working at a casino away from downtown. 2yrs ago, I went to a 7-11 near work and there is a baby no older than 2 with a shaved head. Which is fine. The star tattoos on his head and face, not so much. And trust me these were not stick on tattoos. Poor kid.
    So you in Vegas now?

    Maybe 2.5 days ahead of schedule but you'll probably have to pay for the paint on carpet.... no?
    What Napa resort? Can you say?

    I went to Reno on my way to Lake Tahoe. It really looked as awful as it looked in Reno 911. We ate at an A&W and got groceries at the Sak 'N Save and then drove to Lake Tahoe. I love the name Sak 'N Save.
