Memorial Day, Grad Parties and a Beard

The intent of Memorial Day is remember and be thankful for the individual’s that gave their lives for the cause of freedom. The freedom to go camping or have a picnic. I love camping. Well, I would love camping if I went camping. As the twins get older, they have their own ideas as to what to do on long weekends; including Memorial Day. Now that they are in high school, graduation parties seem to be the thing. Personally, I don’t remember going to graduation parties when I was only a sophomore. Girl Twin told Elaine and I she was planning on going to some kid with an Irish name’s party. The Irish name is significant because I am of German decent. The Irish are lucky, they can name the

May Construction Projects

It has not been a very good month in my construction life. I have used “construction language” more times, than I needed to. I’m blaming my sour mood on May; the month of May. May is a very good month for getting things done in construction, except in the rain. It can rain in May.

Special Weekends, Prom and Jesse

Elaine and I have an unsaid promise that while I am off furthering my construction career, she would spend at least one weekend a month together in Denver. This past weekend was this month’s weekend. Before we start chatting about my weekend, I need to say Elaine could be the least violent person I’ve ever met. Oh, there was that one time 40 years ago when I said something Elaine didn’t like and she threw a Supperware lid at me. She was going to throw another lid, but stopped before she threw it. I told you she was not violent. I couldn’t take a chance on her turning violent again, though, I called the Supperware folks and made sure Elaine could not attend anymore parties. For those of
