Today is my father’s birthday. Mark Chaffin is 63 years young, a new e-bike rider, and retired. For his birthday, I’m sharing with you all a photo essay: how he built an 8’ x 16’ storage and work shed this winter in my brother’s Jacksonville backyard. I stayed with my parents at that house with his two dogs. I helped a bit on several, significant home renovation projects like the shed. I miss my brother dearly – I was glad to spend time with his girlfriend – and I love my dad for how he deploys talents selflessly for his sons. I’m glad my brother has a “backyard oasis” for their total of four dogs.
