A Story about a 'Perfect' Man! LOL!!!

Calamity_JJuly 7, 2008

Okay, so the drywaller comes to our home this morning and I get to chatting with him...it turns out he is also a bricklayer and stonemason...his first passion....well, we get chatting about other stuff he's done and it turns out he likes to make styrofoam tables and mosaic them!!! But the PERFECTNESS comes when he says..."Sometimes I am just laying in bed at night and can't sleep cuz I'm too excited about a project/idea I just thought up!!!" "Sometimes I just gotta get up and do it cuz I can't sleep anyways!" I was BEAMING/smiling at him by then! He is going to bring me pics tomorrow of some of his stuff! He loved my window for the front door too! And I showed him my Loctov book!

Noooooooooooo, CINDI - he's M.I.N.E. I sure could use a handyman like that. 'course, he'd have to sleep/eat/live in the garage, after he cleaned it out. Drag him to the forum, CALAM. He sounds interesting.

LOVE: Check out Amazon . com for "Mosaic Art and Style" by Jo Ann Loctov. You can get it used. It's not a "how to" book, but it is filled w/wonderful mosaics that give you inspiration.
check here?

SEE - we TOLD YOU!!! You'll be mosaicing b/f long. Keep up the exercising those fingers. I hate phone calls, and all my family/friends know it, so most of my correspondence is via emails. You'll REALLY get inspired w/the book. I bought it twice - lost the first copy in the disorder, and after I bought the second one I found the first, so gifted it to a friend.

He showed up today and had a camera of stuff he quickly took pics of and so it's hard to see on a little one inch screen but he invited me over to his (and his wife's) place, and so I'll take pics! I read out all the posts here and he was ROFL!!! His stuff is amazing! He builds stuff and sells them at trade shows! 10's of thousands of dollars!!! And he just makes it in his spare time at home in his basement! I may have found a new Sensai!!!heh heh!
