Brothers Campfire on Typing, Lion Hyping,Restoration, Welding Station

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

It was good to have Steve from Steve’s Country drop by the Campfire earlier in the week. He makes a good cup of joe and tells some great stories.

If you ever want to spin a tale, contact me and I may be able to work something out with you, just like Steve.

In other news, my week has been rough. Prisons can be that way. I am a little stressed about a presentation I will be making next week and I am trying not to count the lions. They can make you weak in the knees. I just tackle them as they come, one at a time.


What is fulfilling and wonderful is the homefront. Me and the 12 year veteran of life have been hard at work making all kinds of things and working on lots of projects.


Yeah, we have been busy. Family first, family everything. We are bent on learning some new skills and building stuff.

Tuesday, we will be taking a welding class to learn more.

I look forward to bringing more adventures as my weekend progresses, but that is all for now!

    Great stuff, what skillful work! Do you work at a men’s or a woman’s jail? I would be very interested in your work there, but I guess you aren’t allowed to discuss it much?

      I can answer basic questions, but they do not represent the views of my employer. I work in a mens prison. Thank you for the compliments!๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ

      1. The Paltry Sum says:

        I hope the Lions remain fluffy and things calm down for you. I think I’d almost rather deal with the guys than the girls….

          1. The Paltry Sum says:

            That is good, its good to see someone working in a setting like that, and have compassion and want to do a good job.

    I canโ€™t imagine working in a prison – I remember when I was helping the police … some pretty insane stories

    I think you will do fine… remember the commercial from the 1970โ€™s โ€œnever let them see you sweatโ€ lol Arrid Extra Dry ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Donโ€™t let them smell fear

    I can say that … but is hard for me to follow that also, when I am facing Satan ๐Ÿ˜

    But you got that.

    What is presentation on? Anything good?

    1. Benjamin says:

      Thank you for your encouragement! I will give an update soon!๐Ÿค ๐Ÿ”ฅ
