Day 239, Thursday, May 31, 2012

“Trailers, Ferns, and more ‘But’” I worked for Norb today.  I should say I got to work for Norb today.  He is so very special.  I am blessed.  We built the deck on a flatbed trailer.  I got there first thing in the morning, and worked all day with him and Trav.  Stained it with [...]

“Sick and Tired” I’m not feeling great.   Gotta wicked cold.  Working through it.   And have an opportunity to work for Norb tomorrow at 6:30, so have to go to bed early.   Sean is not coming back, and Zina is on a plane.       Nick caught a small halibut, 70 lbs [...]

Day 230 – Tuesday, May 22, 2012

“Of Mice and Men” I was away for a few days, for my nephew Chase’s Confirmation.  Happy to be home, in Cutler.  And it’s been a thick and foggy day, all day.  The lobsters have still not arrived, and many a fisherman is saying that this is the harbinger of this year’s spring.  They’re not [...]
