When I was very brave and much younger

I built this house ( for sale, on spec) from a set of plans and a big pile of Home Depot lumber in 1991.
It is still one of my favorites. Ahh the days of checking accounts and credit lines. No more.
Now I build sheds and trash enclosures. BUT if someone wants to build there own home from scratch, I know of a darned good foreman who and can still lift 100 lbs off the floor. Posted by Picasa

Here from Michele.
That's a nice house. Why did you stop? Too much hastle from the clients? Changing their minds, driving you crazy?

My 20 year old daughter is working on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi in clean up and re-building efforts. She told me she learned to drive a forklift. I am incredulous at this point and told her she'd have to send a picture or movie of her actual driving; or at least pictures of the mailboxes she took out along the way.

Hello David. Here from Michele's. Am I bringing the coffee tomorrow morning? Or is it your turn this week?

I take it blond and sweet (not like my men. I prefer them dark haired. hahaha)

Cream and sugar please.

See you tomorrow, I'm sure.

Still livable? A good track to leave behind you...
