    I want to tell you of a tale my friends...

    It starts south of the border near my family's ancestral land. This area is known for it's rich culture, it's beauty, and also tales and legends that have been handed down from generation to generation. I'm sure many of you have heard of "La Chupacabra" yes? But how many of you have heard the legend of ...... PAVER PEDRO!!!????!!!!

    Nobody knows if the legend and the stories are true...... However, over the years, many an intricate patio, walkway, and even 500 ft.retaining walls have just appeared seemingly overnight throughout the countryside. The locals describe these engineering masterpieces as rivaling the likes of the Great Pyramids and the Aztec Temples.

    There is no explanation for this other than the cryptic words of a local Yaqui (man of knowledge) who was speaking in a feverish state on his deathbed. Luckily, a local reporter was present for his final minutes on this earth. His words were recorded as such.... " The man, the man.......... He comes with hammer and chisel....... He tells me his name..... Paco.... NO! .... Pedro... Yes, that's it... Pedro, Paver Pedro is his name. He says he is from a strange place... A village that only the elders would know of, a place he calls Taco Block..... He says that he is cursed in this life, in this shell. He cannot move on but only lay..... Lay pavers I tell you!.... "

    So, just like La Chupacabra, Paver Pedro romes el campo at night. Looking, searching, for those imperfect pitches. Those barren areas.... And some of the locals even say that on some nights... in the early hours... they can hear the sounds of a diamond blade spinning and cutting...... spinning and cutting.....

    Do YOU believe?

    He doesn't need to, he has clipfert reporting to him!

    Seriously, It depends on which day you ask him. In 2012 he said "NO, I'm busy reading gun, Harley and Jeep magazines. In 2013 he said "I don't care what people on the internet say". But at Techo's 2013 showcase - he would not even look in my direction :) LOL

    Anyone know what happened to 'Big Joe'?

    Big Joe is a good man with class. He was a sales rep for Taco-bloc. But I think he's not anymore.
