Wren’s Nest Outdoorsman Matt


Written on August 23, 2007 at 1:01 pm, by Sue

We’ve got a new addition to the Wren’s Nest staff.

Matt Jacobssen, Wren's Nest Outdoorsman
His name is Matt. And he’s our official Outdoorsman.

While Matt’s picture suggests more “disheveled” than “rugged,” make no mistake–the wilderness of our outdoors acreage will toughen him up in no time.

Matt will be working part time at the Nest for the time being, and he’ll be in charge of everything that goes on across our 2.24 acres.

That includes our concert on October 6th.

In fact, he’s already got some experience–

Matt and Kyle

(On the left, dummy. Remember how great Wren’s Nest Fest was?)

Once a week we plan on letting Matt in to grab some water and maybe a stick of rock candy. He’ll also do a bit of blogging, which affects you, dear reader, on a very personal level.

Welcome to the Wren’s Nest, Official Wren’s Nest Outdoorsman Matt!

    horray, rejoice, for matt!!

    there is no one more rugged, or more accurately: affectedly rustic.

    perhaps he will be more suited for taking care of mice. he’ll protect you, lain.

  2. Marshall says:

    Matt it is yours the grounds. We will begin an intensive training with Handy and the old outdoorsman (Marshall and I do mean old). May the blessings of 100 degree heat be upon you.

  3. Gabe says:

    Welcome to the family, Matt.

    It’s a pleasure having you here with us. I’m sure you and I will be exchanging some messages here and there.

    In the meantime, can you please go take care of the lawn?

    Lastly, the concert on October 6th shall be a special one, because it is a very special date, and that’s Gabe’s birthday!

    Gabe, if by chance you are in Atlanta on that day, you have a front row ticket waiting for you. Plus, I will guarantee that you get to sing with the band.

  5. Deb says:

    Hey Lain..just looked at the info on the concert..very cool. However don’t you have to have at least a previous concert before you can call the next one part of a series? ;)

  6. lain says:

    Good point, and I think we may change that.

    We did have a fall concert last year that went very well, and we were considering several concerts in a row for this fall; however, I think that plan has been nixed for several reasons.

    I do believe we’ll have another big one in the spring, perhaps in celebration of Gabe’s half-birthday.
