Thanks. I will definitely keep that in mind. My main problem right now is
I need to travel to get what my customer wants, a two hour trip (one there
and one back) and she has no money to pay for travel. I've done all I can
do to that point. But, I have family in that area as well, Hardeman Co.,
TN, so do I go do my personal research and sneak her in with no pay? Still
pondering that one.
