    Something is amiss…where are the other comments? Living with stolen wi-fi makes for an erratic internet voyage. My dear colleague TJ (ha!), because I spend much of my life in noisy desperation and a beer-and-rum induced semi-coma I have a weird juxtaposition of your last dozen posts but did I not see that The Lloyd requested more info on your bad-ass man-cave trailer? Gadzooks! Yer killin’ me! He only posted me for some of my fantasy-land typing! I’ll get you for this, Jackson, mark my garbled words. A houseboat, maybe, or a hot-air-balloon-supported yurt. I certainly have enough hot air for such a job, count on that.

    Meanwhile, where are my stickers? If yer such hot stuff you should be able to just throw them in the air and the Magic Wind will blow them to my flying yurt, once I build it.

    Until then, yrs, tj

    p.s. if you have any extra dashes (-) please send them along with the stickers. I used up my entire Spring supply in that first paragraph.

      Tj the bicycling poet,
      Hey man good to hear from you! As for the comments it seems that the people requesting the stickers mostly comment on the private form on my about page and usually just request stickers. I think the most impressively thought out comments by the likes of you and my sister may scare some off or people like to watch from the distance and laugh rather than join in either way I would rather have a couple of well thought out comments then some useless back-slapping. I have a new goal for 2014 I am trying to learn how to become completely detached from the outcome (any outcome). Just live you know -work,love,create and generally try to have more fun. Life seems to be moving pretty fast these days and I would like to slow it down just a little and smell the roses as they say.

      As for the stickers I would be proud for you to have some, as you know all I request is that you email a pic of where it lands. I will check with sis if she still has your address from when she sent her stickers otherwise you can fill that form out on my “about” page I promise I won’t send any spam.

      As for Lloyd (the man with the plan) if I told you the outcome of that request you probably wouldn’t believe me. Hell I don’t really believe me! But then again I’m learning to not obsess about the outcome….right……I said trying…..

      I missed your intelligent b.s I hope this comment finds you well.

      P.s – flying yurt you say….hmmm…I think I just came up with an idea………..

        OK if you want to know how to do it right observe your children.

        Duly noted. Less yelling at them more observing.

Okra flower in morning sun. This time of the year in our part of Texas it’s hard to grow a garden in full sun. Okra loves the heat originating in southern Ethiopia it can handle the very hot Texas sun. Okra aids in digestion Okra is high in vitamin C that can boost immune system strength Okra can help strengthen vision and protect against cataracts Okra improves skin health and can be applied directly after boiling and mashing Okra is a great source of fiber #okra#okraflower#victorygarden#growyourown#foodismedicine #foodislife #getoutside#lifeisagardendigit
Oh Snap in a matter of a day Artisan Builders went coast to coast. It’s like a tidal wave of swag. I don’t think I’ve heard of a feat like this since the Wright brothers took their famous flight in 1903....sorry I got a little carried away. Cheers IG and TGIF my many,many IG friends. #Repost @the_drawer_dude with @get_repost ・・・ #MAILCALL. Received a really nice surprise from one of my oldest IG friends Tohner @tohnerjackson. What a cool hat from an even cooler craftsman and family man. He and his father build AMAZING homes in Texas. Check out @artisanbuilt to see for yourself. Thank you my friend, I will wear it with pride. I hope our paths cross one day and I can buy you a beer or two. Cheers my brother. 🍻
Artisan Builders spotted in the Northwest who knows where it will go from here?....... #Repost @deancreates1 with @get_repost ・・・ I hate selfies, but when a fellow melon head sends me a badass lid from Texas, I’ll give it my best shot- wanky eyes and grizzled scruff and all. I have IG friends and then I have “really” good IG friends like @tohnerjackson who builds magnificent homes in Texas and quotes Thoreau and carves unicorns for his daughter in his spare time. Check your mail, Monday, my friend 👍❤️ #igfriends #artisanbuilders #texasfriends #hatsofinstagram #melonheads
Rowan found a Passion flower down by the creek this evening. He was proud and I was impressed. It was Henry David Thoreau that said “ It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. “ I agree. #dadlife#passionflower#rowan#learning#henrydavidthoreau #getoutside
Time to make another svord friction folder mod. #svord#svordmod#knifenut#frictionfolder#onetreewoodworks#onetree#maple burl#mesquite#leatherwork
@artisanbuilt Build with intention. Always. “With a father who is a fabulous craftsman, I was raised with the fundamental belief that it is only when you personally work with a material with your hands, that you come to understand its true nature, its characteristics, its attributes, and I think - very importantly - its potential. “Jonathan Ive #artisanbuilt#artisanbuilders#customhomes#builditandtheywillcome #homeiswheretheheartis #stone#aromaticcedar#customhomebuilder#secondgeneration#
I spent some of my July 4 finishing up a little project for Molly. In a couple of days she will be turning 8 and let’s just say she is into unicorns at the moment. She still believes in myth and magic just like her old man. Just don’t let the sweet loving free spirited nature fool you.... mess with her family and she will pull your cord...just like her old man. I haven’t grinder carved in a while but really enjoyed revisiting an old love of mine. No drawing or model to follow just grind away what doesn’t look like a unicorn. The head is western cedar, the horn is a spalted live oak limb and the eyes some glitter magic. Gray washed with stain and torched for contrast. This will hang somewhere on her wall maybe by her closet as if it’s moving through the wall. I hope she likes it. I hope it makes her smile. I hope when she leaves the unicorn phase she lets me strap it to to bow of my canoe. The first picture and video shows off the carving fairly well. The second video........let’s just say was just for fun don’t be so serious. The unicorn is a legendary creature that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a single large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. The unicorn was depicted in ancient seals of the Indus Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers, including Ctesias, Strabo, Pliny the Younger, and Aelian. The Bible also describes an animal, the re'em, which some versions translate as unicorn. #unicorn#unicorncarving#woodcarver#woodart#onetreewoodwork#molly#imbackbaby#godfather#dontevergoagainstthefamily #magic#family#dadlife
Palo Duro Canyon and the Sorenson cabin is where we spend tonight. Dubbed the Texas Grand Canyon the second largest canyon in the United States. The first people to inhabit this canyon were the Clovis and Folsom people who hunted large herds of mammoth and giant bison. The cabin was built in the 30’s by the CCC. The first European explorers to come upon the canyon were members of the Coronado expedition in 1541. At that time, the Apache people called the canyon home. Francisco Vasquez de Coronado led 1,500 men in a Thanksgiving celebration in May of 1541, which is the real first Thanksgiving in America. The Apache were later run out by the Comanche and Kiowa tribes, who had the advantage of horses brought over by the Spanish. #palodurocanyon #txparks#getoutside#cabin#explore
