My wife tells people that I can make anything out of anything...the cleverest, most capable,versatile man she's ever known(she's 46)...she tells her girlfriends and anyone that'll listen that unlike a lot of husbands out there, I finish what I start...and sometimes I finish what other people start (like a hundred and thirty year-old french door lock set improperly made AND improperly installed...It hadn't ever worked the old lady said ; since she'd been a little girl- her grand-parents had owned the house)...jack of all trades, master of none, I can fix ANYTHING according to her and everybody else ( that really gets me in deep mud sometimes)- & I get "volunteered" ALOT; I guess if the world went in the crapper, I'd be "one of those people running a compound" or someone (you'd) want on your side" according to her and some others....

As for me? well, I'm pretty laid-back, been on L&I for 5 1/2 years after falling upside down on a concrete footing, head an shoulder first...the cabinet in my thumbnail I built after that and before my shoulder rebuild, when I couldn't wash my hair or my right armpit, or pick up a cup of coffee w/ my left arm...had to learn to wipe my a--- right-handed, too!
I like playing Scrabble, Dominoes(DBL9's),photography, I'm agains ppolitical correctness, against foreign oil, against the nafta crap, outsourcing our jobs, against the "so-called one-world crap", I think anybody who talks crap about this country should have to go live in the middle-east or any other place the tree-hugging-left-wing-radical-red-diaper-doper-babies think we should suck up to and "just get along-with-and accept". I'm in favor of deporting all illegals as well as all muslims(not because of race,but because of religion---my prophet didn't have sex with little kids & deny other prophets' authenticity) and anyone suing to remove God from our historic monuments, our history, our way of life that made this country the great place it once WAS... playing with my 6 children, playing with Lego's... I'm also the biggest 15 year-old you'll ever meet, she says.

After reading your post you have very strong opinion’s. I don’t know just what to say about them, except that telling us your wife’s age is a little boad. Have fun and work safe.

actually, she’s kind of a big broad…;)

Say what you want or what you feel about them, I just support the ideology, history, constitution, and the thought process of look, think, and act…take charge and do what is right…people stopped doing that after 1960…. and I was born in ‘67.
Would we have won ww2 if society now had been society then? NO, I believe and I think, not…we’d all be speaking German or Russian or Japanese. My strong opinions reflect a generation that is dying out, the same generation that went out and kicked some wermin’s arse’s and helped keep The United States as the status quo for the rest of the world to want to be… There’s a bunch of sissy’s running everyrthing now, and ruining Her fine name and reputation. Wood is the only thing that has remained constant throughout history, empires have come and gone, but wood is still here…wood is my friend;)

A man’s got to know his limitations, but also not allow them to limit him.
