Stopped in to visit my dad in his woodshop yesterday and handed him a @budweiser. My parents sold their construction business and retired a few years ago. As a child, I used to think that everyone’s dad worked on things on the scale that he did. Among the list of things that he has made in his lifetime, one stands out as especially memorable: he built the house I grew up in. Alone. Twice. The first time he built it on nights and weekends, working well into the early morning for two years until it was nearly complete. A tornado destroyed the house weeks before we were going to move in so he built it again. Retirement hasn’t kept him from his trade. I found him late last night building a table for his new planer-jointer and asked him if he would like to fulfill his lifelong dream of being a model for some work we’re doing with @budweiser. Mission accomplished. #thisbudsforyou
