Well she must be doing something right, she's kept me that way for 15 years.

I'm good with that.

Re: Things I Love


This will be for my grandfather's old home (brother and his fam there now). In the past with people there all winter during the week days, they were around 7... Inefficient stove and poor insulation.

But, kids are in school now so sister in law has work outside home.. they'll burn much less.

Re: Things I Love


My young superintendent, who we are intently training, stop me today when I addressed him as Tommy, and asked that I call him Tom. Lol

If I was still on the crew I would call him Tommy Boy. As it is I guess it's Tom. LOL

I do notice that he is taking to my liking for collared shirts and tucking in. He asked we order him logo'd collared shirts for him.

He is also very Hands-On on the projects when possible. Right up my alley. Good kid

Might do it in 2019. Maybe 2020. I don't know. Seems like the right move to make, but boy, what a commitment.

I've tucked my shirt in for the last 25 years or so.





The last 10 years my stomach untucks it.
