    “Joke ’em if they can’t take a fuckin'”

    A Tradesman joke. What a cool picture. ’49, ’50 Ford Delivery? I’ll bet I’m older than yer old man. Tell him I said hey. Is he a carpenter? Mine was.

    Getting tired, man. Keep it up. They need us, whether they know it or not.

    The truck I believe is a 49, the same vintage year as my old man. Yea I work with him and have for the last 15 years building custom homes.
    No easy task working for your old man….

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.
