    $1 a pound for lead pipe, sheeting, roof flashings, cable shielding, and around 200 pounds of wheel weights. Talking to the owner/ manager about a better price due to a lot of waste in the wheel weights. I was told they would buy the waste back. We’ll see.

    Yea well, got some bad news today. After all that the surgery failed and the next evolution is amputation. So I guess I will be mono-legged soon.

    That is bad news. Our prayers are with you! Who is the Orthopedic Surgeon? Let me know if you need something.
