Those old Gas stations:
Report of Friday:
JJ and I were talking yesterday and I mentioned stopping by Aldi’s once because we needed some loaf bread. I walked thru looking for the bread, NONE, all the shelves were empty.
I asked one of the employees, “Where is the bread?”
A look like WHY would you ask before asking, “Haven’t you heard there is a storm coming?”
I was flabbergasted. I looked at the milk case, EMPTY, it hit me what I have heard, the shelves empty when people down south hear a storm is coming. Do people really think that a storm here will last a week? And buy out all the bread and milk.
“JUST REMEMBER DAD, FOLKS GOTTA HAVE THOSE MILK SANDWICHES!!!”
I cracked up. Now here in Utah…
Ben is a supervisor on
some big home construction projects. His crew framed this house on the side of
the Wasatch Mountains. The lot value is $500,000. The house has 200 windows and
has been under construction over a year. Finish value of the home alone near 2
million.I took this picture nearly strait up. Subject house is the one on the left.
Below is the kitchen, those are marble floors. The cabinet men had just started, the black cabinets will cost $40K. There will be a walkin refrigerator not included in the price.

Below is one already finished and occupied on the same mountain.
I am very proud of JJ's son Ben. I KNOW just reading the plans for 6-7000 sqft homes of three levels and 200 windows is a nightmare. Then actually framing it is an accomplishment.
