"WINDOW COST IN ARKANSAS", THAT'S HOW JOHN AND I FIRST MET. I WAS NEW TO LITTLE ROCK HAVING MOVED FROM SOUTHWEST MISSISSIPPI WHERE I TAUGHT SCHOOL. TO ME LITTLE ROCK WAS A BIG CITY. I HAD JUST BROUGHT A HOME THERE IN THE MID 1970'S AND BEING AN OLDER HOME IT NEEDED A GREAT DEAL OF WORK INCLUDING NEW WINDOWS. MY NEW NEIGHBOR, A GREAT FELLOW TO ME ABOUT A GREAT LITTLE COMPANY HE HAD PURCHASED WINDOWS FROM A FEW YEARS EARLIER. TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT I CALLED ALLEN CONSTRUCTION COMPANY AND MET JOHN ALLEN WHEN HE CAME OUT TO GIVE ME A QUOTE. A LIFE-LONG FRIENDSHIP CAME FROM THAT MEETING AND JOHN AND I TRAVELED MANY ROADS TOGETHER IN THE FOLLOWING YEARS. IF FACT THE LINK TO HIS WEBSITE ABOVE IS TO A SITE I BUILT FOR HIM JUST A FEW YEARS AGO IN APPRECIATION OF THE MANY, MANY THINGS HE HAS DONE FOR ME OVER THE YEARS. FOR THOSE IN THE CENTRAL ARKANSAS AREA, IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING WINDOWS, SIDING OR PERHAPS SOME OTHER IMPROVEMENTS FOR YOU'RE HOME YOU WILL NOT GO WRONG WITH ALLEN CONSTRUCTION. JOHN WILL PERSONALLY COME OUT AND GIVE YOU A QUOTE ON YOUR NEEDS.
""Liberty and freedom are precious and must be fought for and many generations of Americans have answered the call and heard the toll of the Liberty Bell. Now is such a time and ask not for "whom does the bell toll". For those on the greens at Lexington and Concord heard the call and saw the approaching danger in the forms of "Brown Bess" and "Redcoat". And when the smoke had cleared the deaf ear of the oppressor was pierced by "the shot heard round the world".""
