We had some unexpected PAID overtime here thanks to Mr. Steven Spielberg filming his lincoln movie. I worked my butt off and cleared about 2800 overtime $$ in 2 months.
That must have been exciting! Any interesting stories from being involved with that?

My thinking too on that. I have 6 years to go and will be 51. Starting this now so maybe i can be established by then. And yes the movie was great. Got to see Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, Spielberg and Wife, David Spader(the Office), and Others. The production and work is 1st Class and the impact on the economy was in the millions. Lots of locals put to work, tradesmen, cops, firefighters, Landscape techs and more. They feed us well when they were here also.

I to am a full time Police Officer in Canada. We do get well paid and compinsated here however I needed some extra income when the kids came along so started a part time Renovation business four years ago and I have not been without a job since. I am starting a Lawn Care business for my 65 year old father and 60 year old father in law who are both retired but are bored silly. I was looking at going commercial, however we are just trying to keep the old guys busy and out of their wives hair, but make some extra cash. So we went mostly new Craftsman that were all on a great sale. We start up in a month. Wish them luck.
