Justin, The Man’s Man

While photogenic, Justin my neighbor is quite modest.

A carpenter and maintenance expert, he maintains apartment complexes for a living.

Justin pays attention. He volunteered to shore up our aged deck so my Beloved can go outside safely when she gets home.

I am grateful for Justin

And ladies, so far as I can tell, this fine specimen is single.

Justin is an urban farmer focued on sustainability and spends his free time growing exotic peppers and building things for folks.

Here are a few things I have seen around the neighborhood that Justin built on his spare time.

One could get used to having Justin around.

When we have BBQ’s , he is good at all the games and brings a dangerously large “Jenga” set that he manufactured.

When he isn’t working, we talk about all sorts of things. I am beginning to think he knows a little bit about everything.

Justin has some boundaries and asks that you don’t steal his tools.

Someone has to support those who refuse to work.

Thanks Justin, for helping my family in a time of need. I appreciate you.

        I hope he likes feisty redheads. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‚

        Seriously though, sheโ€™s a good Pentecostal woman who would love to take care of a good man. I pray God gives her one who loves and cherishes her the way you do your sweet wife.

        God bless you brother Benjamin.

    We know a tradesman called Justin. He’s been giving us the runaround for months. I run out of time (aka took on too much) in the new year let’s go. Ready to rumble.

    Wish me luck………
