Well, another holiday is here as today is Christmas. I could think of a lot of fun things that I would rather do today at Salt & Asphalt Life t shirts but we know….I am going to my 87 year old moms. My mom is tough, she raised 4 boys and we are all hellions.
Family and the holidays
I chose the life of a nomad, traveler and business man with Salt & Asphalt T Shirts and Old salts Life t shirts…just couldn’t stay in one place to long. Being a surfboard shaper and builder, a hammock weaver at Freaky Tiki Hammocks and a designer at Salt & Asphalt t shirts , I could go anywhere there was an ocean and surf and make money. One brother Michael (who I lived in Hawaii with) got married had kids and the I helped him get into the Surfing business. He has done very good, very grounded. One brother , Nicky (the older one) has always sold cars..had a bunch of kids and basically led what we call a normal life and then my youngest brother Doug, still not sure how things are going there. This week he set up a video gambling parlor and is making money. But with gambling comes it own problems.
Son of a Sailor and Living in a Trailer..Here I am
And then here I am. Sitting around now only with my dog and my best friend Squirt. I am happy.. No stressful days .no worries, not weaving hammocks just riding waves, playing on the sailboat lying in my Mayan hammock and putting in a couple hours a week a the Hot Wax Surf Shop doing what I love. Don’t have a lot, but I got better memories than most on this planet. Son of a Sailor..at least I finally got out of that trailer.
