    “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….

    OK. He beats me by six years. Like I said, tell the fooker hello from a brother. Oh, by the way, you think workin’ with him is hard, wait till you are workin’ without him. yr pal, tj

Dad and I built this house in 2011 on a stone outcropping overlooking Lake Somerville. It was just published in the Luxe Life - Houston Chronicle. How you like them apples!

Happy Valentine’s! Get in where you fit in. I am home. Love - T Rowan who will be turning 9 years old tomorrow received a lego v-dub at his birthday party yesterday. Obsessed with building it from the moment he opened it. This morning my wife goes into his room at 4:45 he has his lap top open,tv on and he is midway through bag 2. He looks up with the eyes of an obsessed builder,a look she has seen many times from (me). With no help from anybody he finished the obsession.... I mean project just before noon. Never got angry or frustrated but most importantly seemed to enjoy the process. A project for 16 year olds and older 1,167 pieces later. He’s grown so much in the last year....which gives me hope maybe it’s not too late for me to grow as well. Determination and obsession can be a very productive duo just don’t forget to enjoy the ride. @lego .
#dadlife TGIF friends!! Still toying with different color combinations for the official Artisan Builders cap. This combo is pretty sweet but I’m going to have a few other color combos made to compare. What do y’all think? Cheers.
