Pig

Edit: I had a great idea if ya'll think this would be fun! Whoever can send me the most unique, funny, weird or otherwise cool sticker for said hardhat, gets one of my handmade mugs or cups! Now, I get to pick the mug or cup and it might be one that has a small blemish in the glaze or something. And, of course, I'll pay the shipping so, sadly, I must limit this to my US or Canadian readers. So?!!!! If you want to participate just email me and I'll send you my snail mail address.

None of the guys seemed real excited about getting a little, pink pig sticker for their hardhat. I thought they were great myself. But then, I have butterflies on my hardhat too. Some of you may know that we often get commemorative stickers for the jobs we work on and a lot of the guys display them on their hardhats. You may be able to make out the sticker that occupies the place of most honor on mine (near the top of the hat). The job I'm on right now is a large Piggly Wiggly warehouse, so therefore, the pig. So, anyway, I had a great idea. Any of you work for a company (or other entity) that has stickers? Want to send me one to put on my hardhat? Or, just a sports team from your state or something more anonymous like that. In fact, a sticker of a geographic nature would be great! They have to be of a small size (about 2"x2" max.) and not too terribly obscene. I thought that would be great; to display tokens of my wonderful readers!
This is probably the one that gets the most comments, especially from the Hispanic men. I think the Spanish word is the same and they seem to want to understand if that's what I really mean. lol! After they work with me for a while they don't ask anymore. Just kidding. Sorta.

In other news, it has stopped raining!!! So, I stopped on the way home and bought some more stain for the house. I hope to get a lot done on painting the existing siding and completing the north side of the house. I also have a date tomorrow night. You know that old saying, 'the best way to get over one man is to get on top of another'. Ack! Did I say that!? Guess I'm a nasty ol' construction worker after all. lol! Hey, I have to keep with the title of the post. Nah, that's probably part of the reason I have had trouble getting over what I have; I'm not going out enough. So anyway, I know this one's nothing serious but that's fine. He's good for a good time and he's sweet.

Hopefully, I will have some house photos soon of something I have completed. It may not be much but maybe something. I would like to completely finish the north side of the house very soon so I can move on around.

I wish I had a sticker to give you, especially one that was not too obscene. What happens when you run out of hardhat space?

Woody said...

Now that sounds like Annie...

Richard said...

Sounds like you're over your "blues" and back into the swing of things. Love the hardhat.

Never say never. You never know where something not serious could lead.

Hey Pablo! Well, is there a local sports team or such?
Well, you end up only getting one sticker a year, usually, so it's rare that we run out of space. I only got 2 from the railroad job because of His Sweetness. Plus, our hardhats usually end up getting busted or expiring (if you stay in the business that long)and you have to start all over again anyway.

Hey Woody! heehee. Well, we'll see how long it lasts...

Hey Richard! well, I am, sorta, for now. But that's me.

Hey IR! well, now I agree and that's one of my favorite sayings but I'm pretty sure about this one. We have both agreed that we'd strangle each other if together too much but we are good buddies.

Hey Molly! HA!! works for me! well, except for one...

Well Annie, I must say that you are sounding better anyway. I'm glad to hear that you are going out, good for ya. Hey, it's good for all of us everynow and then. Hope you have a GREAT time, you deserve it.

Oh, I wish I'd read this before our wildflower walk -- I would've totally grilled you about your date!

I'm looking around for stickers....

edifice rex said...

Hey Chris! thanks!! I'm some better.

Hey Pea! You must have not arrived yet when Karen was teasing me about getting in at 2 in the morning!
Stickers yea!

carpenterlady said...

I will try to find a sticker for you. I have one on one of my hardhats the same as you, Brand. I worked for them spring 2008.

edifice rex said...

Hey Lady! Great! I'll be looking forward to that if you can find one.
