time flys even if your not having fun

I have to apoligize to my fans, and especially chrissy jim bob. I think Im in his trash can. This last month has been wild and crazy. Work has been an adventure with more work to do and stuff than i have ever had to do .I have two high school kids working for me and thats a pain. (wish i had the old crew back that we busted butt then went water skiing, they were awesome.) I have to show them ever thing to do and every thing is different. I had them welding pin caps for two days, and then Jared Rhett Jensen came and took them all. It really deflated there ego s to see all the empty paint cans again.
Mom and i are headed to utah mon night , we have to be at the galvinizers and 700 am then pick up stair treads, then meet with the patent attorny at 2:00 get to the temple, then pick up the stuff at the galvinizers at 7;00 p m and then head home. this past week we were building the columns for franklin building and i told jason jones that i wanted an exact measurement so i could cut the 48 foot six inch pipe and get the bollards so i didnt have any waste in the material. long story short he got the old plans and figured a 2/12 pitch . after they were done and painted and deleveried ,I get a call they were all wrong it should have been2 1/2 on 12 pitch. I picked them up and brought them home and cut the bollards up for the 28 inch peices. Measure. cut, grind , fit up , weld, clean, then paint, load on the trailer and deliever. the next day I get a call, out of eight four were wrong, he had thought the left were rights and the rights were lefts. then i start the process all over again, ugh!! when i have so much to do i hate doing things over . DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME I got released from my eleven year old scouts acouple weeks ago. It was one job that i could be myself and the stories were new to the kids i only had them for a year, and they laughed at my jokes.
Mom has really been working hard in the yard, and is taking shape. im posting a picture of a pump. I dont know if you know the story. After my mission i visited betty and carol and there families in glenns ferry , as i was driving doen the road i spotted trach heap (being one to never miss an opportunity i spotted this pump in peices and found a cast iron pot, they went with me to california in 74 and hung in the newmans yard and came to Idaho in 76 . a couple of years ago we made a pond in the back yard, and i love the sound and the memories.

I didn't know that the pump has been with you for so long! Maybe you should take little JJ under your wing and teach him to measure twice and make columns once.

P.S. You were looking good in that suit!!

I don't know how many times I've seen that picture, but never thought it was our same pump. It was a lot less rusty back then and same with you. You were so suave!!

Good to hear you're busy, but frustrating that doing work twice or three times is adding to the load.

Thanks for your blogging return. Never knew the story about the pump. Way to incorporate you personal history, good idea.

hey Wep! Love your picture - at first I wondered who that was with all that hair! :) Nice work on the blog, I can almost hear you saying it as I read it!
