JUST PLAIN EMBARRASSED: What I thought would be a fun couple hours in line waiting for my reserved iPhone turned into something, uh, just kinda stupid. Too long. Embarrassed. Confused. Conflicted. Thanks to cousin Scott and Attorney Sean for giving me strength the whole time. Good people. What a haul. Won’t be forgetting that one anytime soon.

But I hafta say, “This phone is pretty boss.” Thanks, Apple.

GOOD WOOD: Here’s what this one is called: “Sir Norman Foster’s bespoke tool set and more from a preeminent Swiss woodworker.” Intoxicating, really.

IN THE DEPTHS OF LAKE MICHIGAN: “Steamer L.R. Doty Located in 300 ft of Water off Milwaukee.” All these years later. That shit’s out there. Incredible. (Thanks, Reilly!)

LITTLE_FIELD_NOTE_ICON.gif RECEPTION WOES?: Our Field Notes “Band of Rubber”, Product No.”FN-09” might just alleviate them. Wrap that rascal!

STILL CHIPPING AWAY AT THIS ONE: Ken Burns’ Mark Twain. I think it’s safe to say we could all use a little more Samuel Clemens in our lives.

KING OF THE BREEDS: Dachshund blueprints. Hot sellers, we’d bet. Ha. (Thank you, Stefan.)

Last night I came home and laid on the porch and let Gary scoot around my head, licking the ears, nibbling on my nose, etc. Down on his level. Large man laying on small porch. Small dog skittering around medicine ball head. Our life.

Ghosts of the Third Coast. Gotta love those shipwreck stories as not told by Gordon Lightfoot.

Hey there Mr. Draplin-

it’s Eric from “the line” with the downtown store. I’m glad you like the phone, that line on the other hand we all could have gone without. Last one out Thursday was at 10:30- not that bad.

I always dig checking to see the neat stuff you’ve come up with, it’s real unique and reminds me of the midwest back home and a no-bs attitude that I think also comes from living there. It’s always hilarious reading the fine print you come up with too.

Take care, I’m trying to go somewhere with video production in the action sports industry. Care to shed any light or a nugget of info on that field?

Kind Regards,

Eric Pestorious

Hey there, just thought i’d finally pipe up after months of stalking and randomly buying stuff and making you ship it to the UK…..but I seriously want to buy a Dachshund blueprint. It would make me quite a lot happier I feel.
