technically it's still wednesday--for another 38 minutes, anyway--and so i'm still holding to my monday, wednesday, friday plan...
but just barely...
been working this week with my pal, jeff mccluskey, one of the nicest guys i know and easily the most laid back. jeff is a true artist when it comes to woodworking and crafts stuff out of wood that makes my jaw drop open sometimes. when he needs an extra pair of hands or a big job comes along, he usually gives me a call 'cause i love hangin' around with him and i dig the change of pace. NOTHING gets my imagination working like a change of venue and a different type of work to focus on. plus, did ya hear me say that i love hangin' around with this guy.
work is never work with jeff--it's always fun and even when things don't look like they're going right...we're fine.
currently, we're working on an ENORMOUS pair of oaken gates for a big mansion in millbrook. lots of structural considerations and lots of detail. yesterday we took a break at the end of the day to deliver a kitchen island--the heaviest piece of furniture i have ever lifted!
i'm telling you all this for two reasons;
1.) that's why i don't have the follow-up ghost stories blog today, and
b.) i'm having a ball!
i really think that it's important to get away from what you do now and then. do something else, something you might not even know how to do, maybe even something that scares you a little. it amazes me how recharged and refreshed i was coming home from work yesterday and how focussed ands eager to write i was when i got here!
that's all i gotta say. jeff's a great friend and we have a lot of fun together.
now i gotta go and write. i can't wait!
nothing really to post except this actual article from a 1955 good housekeeping.
and this picture that i think is cute/funny.
even if he's' tellin' noob to shut up...
i checked out muchosucko.com and they've got dirty pictures there. so if you don't wanna see those, don't go.
see ya friday!
ps--whatcha gonna be for halloween?
