Judges Critique and Commentary:
“…Good title, dramatic front cover: Good choice material for back cover...
The writer has hit upon a very interesting concept and used it with good results. Quotations and sidebars have been used well. There is a nice variety of types of profiles.
This little book should have widespread distribution. It is a great reminder of those upon whom we depend. Counselors should definitely have copies.”

Building, Digging & Shaping
“...You must prepare the ground,
plant the seed, cultivate, and water if you expect
to reap the harvest.”
Stephen B. Covey
The sun rises at 6:30 a.m. on another summertime Saturday, bricklayer Clarence Jeffers starts his workday.
Today he is assigned to a $3.2-million mansion in
the suburbs of Basking Ridge, New Jersey. The owners, a middle-aged wife and her practically non-participatory older husband, hired him to do the painstaking work of laying one brick at a time for their castle-like home, whose exterior is to be a combination of the off-white and tan-colored bricks which were imported straight from Italy.
With his pile of Italian bricks and big bucket of gray mortar, Clarence begins his bricklaying routine of stirring the mortar a couple of times swiftly before placing each brick.
The mortar must be the right consistency and also the right temperature; if the sun is too strong, the mortar may dry out. So he must work quickly.
He can lay and layer about 20 bricks a minute, a pretty good time, but when he has a job like this—a total of 1,000 bricks for the front exterior alone—his work is cut out for him, especially since the temperature is already 87 degrees.
Clarence prefers to work in autumn, when the weather is cooler and not as rainy or snowy. But these wealthy customers tend to do their renovations in the summer, it seems, and
Clarence cannot say no if he wants to retire anytime soon. So, with his big bucket of mortar and shiny spade, he makes his way carefully up the scaffolding he must ascend, eventually all the way to the top floor, three stories above ground.
By noon, the sun is out in full force, and the humidity makes it feel even hotter. Sweat drips from Clarence’s graying hair, as he wipes his tan forehead with the red bandana he keeps stuffed in the back pocket of his blue jean overalls. In another hour he probably will have to take his tank top off, he thinks. Otherwise, he’ll be soaked
with perspiration. He grows uncomfortable at the
prospect of the demanding wife, who peers at him lasciviously, especially when he has taken off his shirt.
Unfortunately, as he must start bricklaying from the bottom up, he often winds up on the top floor—where her bedroom is—when the temperature has reached its alltime daily high and he needs to disrobe even a little just to continue his efficient pace. The lady of the house seems to always purposely plant herself on her cavernous kingsized bed, with its shiny lavender sheets. She is decked out in lacy black lingerie and licks her lips.
Clarence has asked his boss to send him elsewhere, but to no avail.
His boss just snickers whenever he relays his discomfort. “You should be so lucky,” he sneers at Clarence. “Plus, Mrs. Anderson is one of our most reliable customers, and she requested you.”
Clarence feels caught between a brick and a hard place.
Even mentioning his sweet wife Melissa and their four grown children does not seem to deter the mistress of this monstrosity at 15 McDougal Lane. He thinks that it might be time to call Dave, his neighbor in Bay Ridge, who owns a corporate construction company, to see if he can get out
of this residential line of work. The money may be good, but the customers can make his days too trying. He’s afraid that if he turns Mrs. Anderson down again, she will have him fired anyway. In the meantime, he keeps plodding away—ivory brick, mortar, tan brick, mortar, ivory brick again, and on and on.
This unquestionable dedication and expertise is precisely why Clarence and all the other bricklayers are worthwhile persons in more ways than a million!
