Working with old Joe on the weekends
Joe was up there, actually was a part of the original painting of the (now gone) Fox Theatre.
Joe would get these termite jobs. The termite guys would tear up and re-stucco the sides of houses. Then, we'd show up and mix the colors to a close match and repaint those areas.
So Joe starts teaching me how to mix colors and I got so good at it the owners would be amazed and thrilled to not have to repainted the whole house.
In adulthood I would go on to sell these services to the BofA. And the bank United California who went on to become First interstate.

Thank you. Joe.
You will always be in my heart.
