"Working" with Millennials

I am having great difficulty finding workers in my construction world. As I have said before, my generation encouraged our kids to get "white collar" jobs. What turned out to be unfortunate; our kids listened. Even more unfortunate, our kids told their kids to get "white collar" jobs. The result of all that advice is, if you are trying to build a house, well, good luck. My employer is getting to a point in his life where he needs to start thinking about who is going to take over the company at the time of his retirement. My employer (let's call him Bob) has five kids. I have been working with 2 of Bob's kids this past summer. The kid's are earning spending money. learning a little bit a

National Parks, Donut Holes and Earrings

Elaine has been working on weaving her one of a kind handmade garments for the last year. Her thoughts were to have enough garments to sell in the store and at the Western Design Conference. It came down to the last second. Elaine was literally working, sewing and placing tags in the motel room every night of the Western Design Conference. (OK, I was working also.

High School, the Eclipse, and a Haircut

High school has started for the twins. So far it has been an amusement park ride, full of ups and downs. Starting at the top and headed down, Girl Twin did not make the softball team. This wasn't all that surprising. She is now competing with girls that make softball a major part of their lives. Girl Twin hasn't made that commitment. Unfortunately, the situation with her not making the team did not endear me to the school or team. OK, I'm not that petty, listen to the story before you judge me. The story begins with an eclipse.
