Hey Gordon, I was trying to find that thing years ago it had a saying on it that "There comes a time in the history of every construction project when it becomes necessary to shoot the engineers and begin construction" It was another funny joke but I can't find it anywhere.
Another one had each job description, like laborer, foreman, supt, project manager, etc. and a description of each one and it talked about the Project manager could leap tall buildings and talks to God....do you remember that one?
I remember them because growing up my Uncles were all in the concrete business back in the 60's on the west coast in Hermosa, Redondo, Beach, subt parking garages for condos and Lomita, San Pedro did some tilt ups, etc beaches ...Bless Brothers, Inc. Uncle Del, Uncle Larry, and Uncle Ralph.....
Then I wound up working for Uncle Del, he had Gray Gold Concrete and Carolease, Inc. as well as he built several of those tilt up retail up front and warehouse/storage in back concrete buildings in San Pedro/Lomita then moved up to Visalia and built several there too. Who knew it would wind me up working for a bridge heavy highway contractor in Dallas TX. !
