Bradley’s dad has given us a gift.  We fought the whole summer to even begin the task of building our house and cannot believe how FAST it is going now!  Foundation was dug and poured, and mere moments later Duane, my father in law, arrived to guide Bradley with the framing.


Before we knew it, a house seemed to sprout out of the land in about 12 days.


Duane is done now, these pictures document his last few hours on the site.  We’ll miss the speed with which he works, along with the intuition and know how that comes from years and years as a craftsman.  We’ll also miss Daniel and Juan, his sidekicks that came along to help.


Thank you!

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
