So glad to hear that things have worked out for you and your family, BP! Sounds like you and your wife did what was right for yourselves.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but did you say that you’re working 12 hours/day, 7 days/week? How are you managing that, especially if you’re 63 years old?
Also glad to hear that Detroit seems to be doing better. It is just that the housing prices are going up, or is everything starting to turn around? Still getting the artsy/gentrification crowd coming in? I sure hope so!
How is your son? Did he end up moving back there to be with you guys? Is your daughter (and grandchild?) still out here?
All the best to you and your family, birmingplumb!January 30, 2015 at 5:31 AM #782430birmingplumbParticipant
Thanks Ca renter! Real nice to be replied to here. Detroit has a new mayor and Dan Gilbert investing like Mike Illitch. But make no mistake about it- the talk in 08 about we need to deversify we need to be like Pittsburg and reinvent itself- was hot air- Detroit is and was and will always be the leader of manufacturing in the free world- that said we are a boom or bust town- and since we are booming now- and let me give you the data – Jefferson North builds 1000 Jeeps a day sold @ 40k average of which 12k is gross profit- so after they include the lawyers, accountants and foreign pimps – the 3.6 billion my plant alone nets yearly is turned into 715 million profit for 2014 for all of Fiat . So that is the truth. Thats where the money is-not plumbing- auto production.Too bad Obama gave us to a pimp of men. MotownJanuary 31, 2015 at 2:52 AM #782470CA renterParticipant
Bummed to hear about your working conditions and hours, but glad that you seem to be doing well, nonetheless.
Keep up the good work, BP. Best wishes to you and your family!
