By now Jessie and I were ready to have a sit down conversation. I had kept on asking Jessie when it would be finished? As we kept having these set-backs and I had no idea where we really were now and I was very concerned about the cost overruns. My pocket is not that deep and it was worrying me to no end. Of course my other worry was that Jessie had been putting in all these weeks of work that was never budgeted for beyond the 2-4 week estimate... way back when!
Jessie was as gracious as ever, for a Southern boy from New Orleans, we came to a very agreeable arrangement. I would not ask him "when is it going to be done?" again. As for the excessive labor I can not say as we have a gentlemen's agreement I most certainly will honor it with Jessie. . Now we could plow ahead and it would be done when it is done.
It was now the end of October and we started this 2-4 week project back in July.
