Blacktop Sealing and Odd Jobs

Over the years I have made many friends. Some of these are people who worked for or continue to work for building material suppliers I patronized while I was building and still patronize when I need things for my own home.

Terry Douglas is one of these friends. He is an honest, hard-working individual who works on side jobs after he is finished with his regular day job. During the day he drives a delivery truck for Harry Ewers & Sons, Inc. in Cincinnati, OH. This company does fantastic blacktop work as well as tar and chip surfaces. They installed my tar and chip driveway. Terry can do all of this work and more, but now he drives each day.

Well, he and I were talking this morning and he told me he was busy on weekends sealing blacktop driveways. He also can do many other odd jobs and do them well. If you are looking for a great man to work around your house, call Terry. If you live away from Cincinnati, OH, you will undoubtedly have to throw in some plane tickets, food and lodging. But you know what, it just might be worth it. Call Terry at: 513-509-2092 or 513-481-0292.

By the way, if you need a one-gallon can of pea gravel, stop in at Ewers on Woodford Road in Cincinnati, OH. Ask for Lori and mention my name. My guess is she will shake her head and say take it for free. If too many of you show up, she will put it on my tab. That's OK by me, so long as you just walk out with one gallon at a time. Lori told me to tell you that pea gravel is free at Ewers on Sundays.
