Escape Trailers, Construction and Helper

Looking into the construction phase of our home, we have a good for cleaning rug, and a great helper today. Maybe he will be able to give the drywall tapers today, he already pulled the broom out.

At near 15 he does love to work. 20191206_071823.jpg

I don't at all mind being called old as long as grand is used to too. He loves trying to copy my use of tools. He looks to be a handy guy.

Yeah, as you probably remeber Lisa is a red head, but none of our kids are. Peter's dad's family has a couple too.

Hi Jim, good to see an up-to-date photo of you looking healthy and well.

It'll replace the mental image of you all crumpled and broken after your fall.

This is a fairly common response from friends. Glad that they can make it.

Have to use Great in front of the Grand at my house. Few more years and it will maybe require 2 greats.

Our county is the 4th least populated in the country but we're working on it. Census is coming!
