on the cover of the rolling stone

well, it's only the journal of light construction. but i did get the cover shot soldering some pipe to a solar collector on the roof of an old army base building in alameda. the funny thing is that it is just a snapshot i just ignored that guy and continued to work.

better yet, my test of the scanner worked perfectly. tabitha hooked it up perfectly.

today is my Friday! i have been working so hard this week that i have been sore every night and morning. tuesday night i had thigh leg cramps that wouldn't quit. i can use the rest. oh wait, i have to work really hard around here too. ;0

my job is kinda like going to the gym for 10 hours except i get paid to do it instead of the other way around. i am getting in really great shape though. i am probably stronger than i have ever been. when i come home more sore than i can remember all i need to do is look into my kids eyes and i can hardly remember the soreness or how i got it.

i like working outside. johnny cash said it best. "give me work that is open to the sky, make me a partner of the wind and sun & i won't ask a life that is soft or high"

this weekend=
fence, fence and general fencing work. oops, the woodstove is coming on saturday. that'll probably take up most of the day.

i need a gas can for my chainsaw to clear the fence rows and garden areas.

Cool mag cover! You're in the big time now! BTW, so am I! Check me out in one of several Chevy Siverado commercials (even though I know you don't have t.v.). Yeah, I made the cut! Except the f@#$%* at the ad agency haven't sent me a contract yet! So, I have to disguise my voice to get through to the right people. They're avoiding me. Don't want to send me my money!
Also, got the wish list and I'm working on it.
Also, I'd have used a hammer on the chimney. Then again, that's why I'm a no-talent actor and you're in construction!Love and kisses to the family!
