We have a visitor this week from Indiana.

When we asked him yesterday what he calls himself, professionally, he responded "I'm a carpenter. A wood butcher."

He is much, much more than that.

He runs his own contracting company in the Indianapolis area and does jobs on restaurants, offices and private homes throughout the state.

He loves his work and he sometimes has to stand to explain a technique.

He has followed in the footsteps of his grandfather and become a very well-known and respected success.

Oh, yes, and he's Judy's oldest offspring.

There's amusement there but also pride in that mother's eyes for her son, Scott Bolton.


  1. Very, very nice Taylor for an acerbic, cranky old bastid like you. Are you sure you wrote it?

  2. Isn't he also running against Hilary for the Democratic nomination?

  3. Was Judy 12 when she had him?

  4. Scott the contractor...I'm sure he's a heck of a good guy! 😉

  5. Give Scott our best. He is craftsmen of the highest order. He did many projects in our Indiana home on Chester Avenue. His work on the mantle and back wall of the fireplace added a beauty and grace the original architect and builder did not achieve. He is not only skilled, perhaps without peer, he is also meticulous and the neatest wood worker we have observed. And he's a great guy!
