Call of the Wild..


I took this pic from my iPhone early this morning when I got to the job site, we are in the process of building a hunting lodge in the middle of an exotic game ranch. This particular red stag is well-known for its bad behavior. He’s been known to ram trucks and people his last owner was gored and when all was said and done he had 30 puncture wounds but lived to tell about it.


A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.

    I hope that you took these pictures through the window of your truck, which was running. And your foot was half on the brake but ready to jump on the gas. And you maybe had some elephant tranquiler in a gun on the seat next to you.

      I was on foot but there was a 9′ high fence in between us in which I had my arm stuck through in order to get the good pics.

Saturday. Samuel Adams Octoberfest. Maple Burl friction folder by Onetree. My newly planted Texas purple sage. Which interesting enough the native americans used to brew herbal teas that treated fever and chills. Mesquite grilled hamburgers accompanied by a mesquite friction folder. Made in Texas by me. Date night. #Reposting @artisanbuilt with @instagrab_pic -- We spent most of the morning back at the Seward Plantation working on project scope and pricing. You can't help but be transported back in time when you walk on the property. Not in the way a museum full of antiquities makes you feel. But in a real life honest representation of a home,outbuildings and contents that have somehow managed to survive in gritty glory since before the civil war. The beginning of my fall garden requires a matching beer. But of course. Coffee first. Saturday evening creek therapy. How many carpenters does it take to start an old land cruiser? Apparently it's more then four...... Date night. T-bones,beets,asparagus,mac and cheese and naan bread. And of course yet another gratuitous shot of one my homemade knifes.
