DANIEL BLUE: MEET JEFF THOMAS >>>

Tacomafilesjeffthomas Tacomafilesart Jeff Thomas moved here recently from the Midwest. He plays bluegrass bass and means to live a conscious and healthy life. He and his wife, Amy, are calm people with well thought things to say about most educated subjects.

Jeff can in one sitting hit me with two to three anecdotes that I am forced to record on my notepad due to their mountain-man-esque wisdom and simple delivery.

It seems there is a bit of the old pioneer spirit written into Jeff's very soul. I sometimes find him to be altogether too darn happy for my cloudy spirit, and find myself jealous of his easy-going nature. To be fair, I'm sure it's not easy being the new guy in town, and it makes sense to have a good attitude about it and put one's best foot forward. This simple kind of decision making is what distinguishes Mr. Thomas's character to me in my memory. He is logical and straightforward.

Currently he is attempting to operate a house-painting rig, where in college children are hired to recolor domestic settings.  As frustrating as I have seen this become, his diligence and stick-to-it nature are inspiring and speak to the standup man that I believe him to be.
