Here you go, dude. “Beards ‘n bones ‘n smiles.”!

Commenting on Saturday’s “Beards and bones” post, our buddy “Jingle” said:
“And given that the vast majority of these amazing, engaging guys are smiling; may I suggest “Smiles” as an additional tag?!?!”
And that got us thinking about a “Beards ‘n bones ‘n SMILES” post. After all we’ve been through in the past year we could all use a little cheering up… and a bunch of bearded, happy, smiling, boned-up dudes seems like it might just be the ticket 🙂

Check it out, dude. “Beards ‘n bones”!


It’s Alex. I asked David and Ben to do a post I could “tag-on” and boom! here it is.
I want to tell you about our new project. A couple of months ago, Nathan told us about an 80 acre property – not far from Koala Cove – that has been sitting vacant for a long time. Apparently it was once a berry farm and the owner died about two years ago without leaving a will. It’s been sitting in probate and never listed for sale. Obviously we aren’t interested in being “berry farmers” but it fronts on Table Rock lake – and even has a (RARE) boat dock permit. So… we’ve bought it and the engineering work is underway. Denise, Nathan and I will be equal partners as we are at Koala Cove. It’s a huge undertaking for us but we’re really excited about it. We’ll devote 15 acres to a lakeside luxury townhouse project and are hoping to build 6 units per acre. 90 units is a lot, but the market is strong and we won’t feel pressed for time. We’ve listed the other 65 acres and hope to sell it – perhaps to an ambitious berry farmer? David and Ben made us promise not to tell Dub the property was once a berry farm. They think with his love of growing stuff, he’d probably want to become a berry farmer himself 🙂
We haven’t named the project yet, but we’ve been thinking about “things Australian”. You know, Kangaroos and Kookaburras and the like. We’ll need the name before too long so we can file the plat and other documents. Any suggestions?
Anyway, we’ve all been thinking about our friend “bw” and praying for his complete recovery from Covid in the near future. xoxo Alex and Cal

It’s Brad’s birthday… and that’s got everyone smiling!
