Why I'm in New Jersey Part One

Because of the construction economy, Jeff had been working on out of town projects since the first of 2010.   It began when Jeff was talking with my brother who does business with an engineering firm in Boston. They offered Jeff the position of a Utility Safety Inspector for some of their large natural gas pipeline projects. He started in California, Utah, Nevada, and Colorado, and then New Jersey.  So, Scott took over running the company, and anyway there just wasn't enough work to support us.

Pumpkin Junction

What we didn’t know when we bought our ticket today on the Black and Western Railroad, was that we needed a kid.  It was a people with kids trip. There may have been clues, OK fine, “pumpkin junction” was our destination.pumpkin junction

Plein Air Painting

This fall I am taking a plein air painting workshop here in Stockton.  It is taught by Ty Hodanish at his studio at the Prallsville Mills.  From what Mr. Hodanish said, there has only been one time that he had a student that just couldn’t be taught. Dear Lord, please don’t let me be number two.
