Brave Star Selvedge Denim Update

At the start of the school year that just ended I received a pair of heavy weight Brave Star Selvedge denim jeans. When I say heavy weight , I mean really heavy. For comparison, the unwashed, “shrink to fit” denim jeans I have from Levi’s are about a 12.5 ounce denim. The Brave Star heavy […]

The Handiest Little Device; A Fridge Pen Holder Pouch

I don’t know about your situation, but in our house virtually every morning there has been at LEAST one, usually two, three or more “morning meetings” going on at any one time.

Plywood Plank Flooring Update

Back in September of 2018 I installed a plywood plank flooring in our kitchen and I shared here about it. Well, it is long past due for me to update how the floor has been aging. Well, I am happy to say that … they are still awesome! They have “aged” a little which has […]

How to Make a Bow

Like you, I have been in self-isolation for the last few days and probably like you, I have been watching lots of tv about how to flip a house and other useful YouTube videos on things like how to make a bow. In this current economic climate I didn’t think it was possible to flip […]

Fade Friday Day #72

It has been quite a few days/weeks since I posted a Fade Friday update. So here it is – a day late from Friday. The fade lines are really starting to develop character especially around my A Simple Leather Belt Co wallet. A couple of years ago I switched from carrying my wallet in my […]

5 Dads Go Wild; Ford Expedition

It has now been more than a month since I took part in the annual 5 Dads Go Wild camping trip. And this year, like last year, Ford Canada provided us with a couple of trucks to get us all safely up to – and back from – Manning Park. Disclosure – the Ford Expedition […]

Fade Friday Day #42

I missed last week’s fade Friday photo so this week we are on day 42. The Brave Star 21.5 ounce jeans just keep on keeping on! Cool thing, two students stopped me on campus and asked if I was wearing Brave Star jeans. They had their own Brave Stars on as well!
