How to Use Table Fields?

Hi Lee Ann,

I was just down at the City yesterday, running the AZ Tile plans  
through for a permit. First time I had been down there in years. I'm  
convinced, based on that experience, that they will be asking you for  
a lot more than you may think. The new code for example has all sorts  
of little things that pop up. But based on you handling it and not  
having to deal with the carport issue (though I'm not thoroughly  
convinced), let's knock another $100 off the fee. So, just send me a  
check for $450 now; The balance when you have your permit. OK?

Good luck,

Joe
