Racing The Calendar
One of the things that happened was we were going to have to have the house plans re-engineered. This house in the original house plans had a full basement. I wish we had one so bad now but you just don't build basements in California. The ground around here is a little like jello. It moves all of the time.
When we were going to build this house and we were getting plans and permits and all of the things you have to do to build a house here.
The phone rang at the other house and on the other end was a very nice man. He wanted to do the re-engineering on the house. I took down all of the information. Then I asked him his name. He hesitated just for a second, took a deep breath, and said, " Lenard Skinner." I was silent for a second. I said, " Really?"
He said, " Yes, that is my name." I said, " Do you get this a lot?" He said, " Oh you have no idea. But I had it first before the band. " So I got off the phone. But I still laugh and think about him.
I hope you have a great Wednesday,
