Clothed, Fabricated, and Engorged Pizza

Hello! Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

I have not been blogging as I have been busy busy. Perhaps I can come up with something quality today!

With my new role, I have a lot to learn about my job and I have been studying hard to be as good as possible for my start date.

I have held my current position for four years as a Lieutenant and six years as a Sergeant in the same building so moving somewhere else is a little scary as well.

Here is a recap of what else I have going on. Sunday, I cheated on my diet and attended church twice. I consumed eight pieces of pizza in one setting.

How? I dont know. I do know if you want a Bible study, feel free to ask!

Today was a rough one for some friends of mine as they lost their mother and grandmother and I served as an usher for the funeral. It was bittersweet saying goodbye while bidding her farewell to a heavenly home.

After the funeral, I changed clothes and went to the hardware store for some consumables and PPE. I hate getting things in my eyes while going deaf from the noise of my tools.

I have been hard at work to master my sander so I can make knives as a hobby. I am making Meh progress, but I like the art of it. I think with practice I will be able to make a pointy piece of metal.

Grinding bevels is an advanced skill, at least, in my opinion. There have been a lot of mistakes!

Speaking of mistakes, I am in a lot of trouble. With this new job assignment, I no longer get to wear cargo pants. I have to dress up in a shirt and tie.

Tomorrow, I have to try a lot of clothes on at the department store. What did I get myself into? I will keep you up to date!

  1. Nice pointy bit of metal there, though I find myself concerned about your saturated and trans-fat intake in a motherly kind of way! That is a lot of pizza, dude! Good luck with the job and the sartorial choices, do you get a new rank?

    1. I am getting better at making pointy bits of metal. Fret not Paltry Sum, I cheat but once a week on fatty flavorfulness. Thank you for the well wishes, and no, I am maintaining the rank of Lt. In a new position.

  2. Do you forge your own knives? Suit and tie wow! I’m assuming you’re not military but use that ranking system in your job level. Dude 8 slices whoo! Good luck shopping.

      1. The longer you work on it the better you become. I like watching forged with fire (nice there still are pure craftsman). Ahhhaa, well congrats on promotion. I’m doing well as can be expected in this environment we now live in. Lucky that I can walk about freely, living on a mountain allows you that. Once a week town excursions with all safe guards in place. The governor lifted the mask mandate here which just floors me, guess politics over safety and human life. Spring is slow to arrive this year, here in TN we usually have 60s. Take care and good luck shopping and with on the new job! 😊🙏🏼

  3. Hahaha ahhh you a suit now 😄😄 👏👏 congrats!!

    A suit and tie is hot… it won’t be bad.

    Find pants that look good but make sure they are comfortable and also easy to care for. Don’t do dry clean only ….I don’t personally like that.

    Get some good shirts 👔… whatever color you into

    Bow ties are pretty cool but you might get your ass kicked in a prison lol … your kids can now flood you with presents of “Ties” 😄😄

    Taylor the jacket – if you have to have one. It will cover any flaws

    I have to wear a black jacket. Is ok… just not in 100 degrees lol

    So you will learn summer this year lol 😄😘✌️

    Luckily women can push limits – you really can’t 😮

    I love dressing up ❤️🙌❤️

  4. Now I am craving pizza! I will have to get some today! 🍕 😁

    Praying for you in this new job role, nephew. You will do very, very well!

      1. Ha,ha….pizza! 🍕

        That is great on the hobby!

        You’re welcome nephew! Thank you for your prayers as well, they are very much needed…God is able!

  5. Ahhhh pizza, why do you bewitch us so? Sounds like you are taking your new job seriously with all the prep and study. This bodes well for success, as does your practice in making sharp things. Stay well and beware the pizza. Allan

  6. Suit and tie? GAAHHHH!! I hope you find something you enjoy wearing. Congrats on the new job!

    I’m sorry for your friends’ loss.
