      Thanks James,
      Yea it’s a battery, I even thought about maybe a candle but with the two little terrorist running around in the house I figured it wouldn’t be prudent(Dana Carvey)

      Peace and Chicken Grease.

    Wait, you carved a left hand or you carved with your left hand? Either way, looks cool.

    Also, I’ve been reading Lloyd’s book. You’re in great company, and you’re right that it only furthers my desire for a tricked out camper van. Sadly, I don’t have your woodworking skills, so I’ll have to buy one that’s ready-made. Someday.

      Well it’s funny, I thought that it was my first left hand carving and then I realized the other three including yours (I think) was a lefty. Strange I don’t think I ever consciously decided to carve a left I suppose it may be due to the fact that my right hand is usually the dominant carver and since I don’t really draw anything on the wood I use my left as a visual reference.

      Yea Lloyd’s book is so incredibly dense with so many cool people doing cool shit and every time I pick it up I randomly open it,I love books that can be digested slowly.

On my way to work this morning the road had a bit of water/river covering it.

Yea that's right I'm fixing a tiara with a tiny pink glue gun filled with a silvery sparkly glue stick. You wanna fight about it. #dadlife#thuglife#saturdaymorning The bluebonnets are pretty iconic in this part of Texas they often cover entire pastures in a blanket of blue hues. Combined with the Indian paintbrushes (red) it can be quite the site. We take them for granted and sometimes even curse them for the crowds of tourist it brings. I'm trying to do better about that (the cursing)and I'm starting with enjoying this bluebonnet that has sprouted extra early in my backyard due to all the warm weather we have been having. #tx#bluebonnets #texas#appreciatewhatyouhave Trimming is in the air today......#artisanbuilders#customhomes#homebuilder#trimcarpentry The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
