Depending on how soon the checks come and how soon the house gets bought and closed we will have to start on the garage ASAP. Now, I am in an awkward position in that I know several people who need work, some of them illegal. So, do I spread the wealth to our friends Hector et al who really need work and money just to eat/raise their families.
OR do I hire my friend who I have known for decades and is the most ethical contractor on the planet though he is financially set and has enough work to do a lifetime thanks to his exemplary reputation, though would work my job in because I fix his cars. He does not, however hire illegals so he would not just hire Hector et al.
But somewhere in this dilemma the garage will be built, the pool painted and ready for the party after the August Keeneland Concours.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
