Yep, it was time to check out those cords, which does not actually involve gold chains or Bee Gees. Not as a rule anyway.
Cord check means us going through every electric saw, and drill, and mixer, whatever...taking inventory, checking continuity, fixing what's iffy, tossing the lost causes.

After decades of stellar work and priceless camaraderie, we're sad to announce Paul Wagner's retirement from Dale Anderson Masonry.
Each of us here has felt Paul's strong presence in the company for so very many years. Early on, Paul was our first and only ‘stone’ guy. He's an artist, in the truest sense of the word. His work has been showcased on all of the very best homes we’ve ever contributed to, and his influence and mentoring to other masons to follow has been and will continue to be felt for years to come. In many ways, Paul Wagner is what DAM has evolved into over the years.
He’s also consistently been one of our hardest working guys, with unrelenting dedication and focus, unselfishness, and commitment to getting things done. And not just getting it done, getting it done as well as it could be. Always a stickler for quality, and he didn’t just settle for ‘good enough’. Paul was and is a ‘company man’, in all the best ways, though he’d probably not want to hear it!
Personally, we all have lots of great memories of Paul, too many to count. As much as DAM will miss seeing Paul Wagner on the job as a fantastic employee, we’ll miss him around here even more as our friend.
On behalf of everyone, “Thank you, Paul Wagner, for being you, and for everything you’ve done for every single person in our family company.” I know I speak for all of us when I wish only the very best for Paul, and Jacky, and the entire Wagner family. Enjoy a few pictures of Paul...mason, husband, father and grandfather. ~ by Karl Zarling
Doug and Tim recently brought young Miller Park Jr. to finally meet its long lost daddy. Right, so it's a pizza oven that they built to look like the stadium...and it's pretty cool. And no, we're not selling these things, but hey, they know how to have fun! ~ by Karl Zarling
Dale Anderson Masonry has officially retained consultant and ne'er do well Karl Zarling as Operations Manager. VP Paul Anderson was concise in stating, "You know the old saying, why buy the cow when the horse is...you know what I mean."
Zarling has consulted with DAM for 8+ years as a technology adviser and marketer, and expressed his satisfaction at finally being "...made into an honest woman, or whatever."
Karl could not be reached for comment regarding comparisons of himself to a cow. He may be reached here to discuss DAM projects, or tired idioms and metaphors. Find out more things Zarling by clicking here . ~ by Karl Zarling
ON A BEAUTIFUL, WISCONSIN SUMMER DAY, Dale Anderson Masonry representatives cruelly fed only a small fraction of this pizza-starved town, in what should have been an otherwise happy event. Pleas of "Can I have some?" and audibly growling stomachs are now indelibly etched in this reporter's mind.
This was completely the guys' idea, and we really had fun. Allenton (our company home) and lots of small Wisconsin communities have annual picnics, complete with parades. Who woulda thunk they'd build a little masonry pizza oven, stick it on a flatbed, fire it up, and actually feed parade-goers?
Somehow I have the feeling this may have spawned an annual tradition... ~ by Karl Zarling
