Craig is brilliant...

Craig can claim bragging rights for coaching the #1 Female shot putter in the US (Jillian Camerena), a handful of Male discus throwers that are ranked in the top 10 in the US (Adam Kuhel, Sean Shields and Lance Brooks), and just last weekend, can now claim to have coached the PAC 10 conference champion in the men's shot put (Zach Lloyd). Not only is he a brilliant coach, he is also a master in the wood shop. He recently built me this shelf. I love it! I hung it above our couch in the living room. I am not done putting things on, around or about it, but was so excited to share that I got a little ahead of myself. He is so clever that all I have to do is draw him a picture or show him something in a magazine and he will build it without any trouble at all. He used to build me things all the time to sell in my little craft business when we lived in Utah. I'm sure he is glad that I am his only customer because track consumes most of his time these days. He told me recently that his schedule will slow down in August. I am waiting patiently with my list of projects!

Congrats! to Craig for his great coaching! That is so exciting for him and his athletes! I can really appreciate that although he is extremely busy with work he takes the time to build you such great items. Your shelf looks terrific!

You are a lucky woman! Craig sounds like a keeper! Love the shelf he made. David has all the tools and knows how to use them but if it something prim, I design it and stand over him while WE put it together! LOL

hugs. Linda
