The waterways of Salvage, Texas did not exist five years ago. Like a dream manifesting, this model of imagination is yours to visit and take your dreams away from, filled with the hope of success and great health ahead. Thank you for sharing.

Yes, given the history of attempting to grow a community of full-time people living in a Pure Salvage Living Ethos is not going to come about on the level I had hoped once upon a naive night. If you build “IT” they will come! What is “IT”? Then “Who” will come? Remember the movie? Great line but no more than that for the most part if one were to use the plans for Salvage, Texas as an example. I did not understand many things about the phrase, people, and the possibility of completing it before people would even begin to see the potential of such a model for others to come to learn from… but that is the dream, not reality.

Instead though, thousands say and support the concept of downsizing in a responsible sustainable building format. Unfortunately most tiny houses, especially now that they are fadish RV’s, that will simply create more toxic boxes, but with the public accepting a smaller version of trash built housing, thus the populace can be put into large apartments, condos, and other toxic boxes that will provide them with basics, but no style or flavor, like living in a factory so you can be close to work and putting all the things you want in a mall next door so you don’t have to use a car. Of course there will be a great deal of restrictions on the colors, noise levels, and all other things creative that you will not be able to apply to your home as it would offend others if you picked hot pink for your door or other such violations to the community standards rules which seem to be needed for such habitats.

I prefer the simple life of having a tiny master suite and sharing the shower, kitchen, and most other parts of the home village that I might need from time to time but not want to own or maintain on an individual basis. In theory, many people tilling the gardens allows for many to flourish and be fed, perhaps by just a couple who love to cook while another takes care of the cars, tool, and other maintenance. It is possible as we age to grow kinder, friendlier, and smarter as well as have more fun if we take care of our bodies while we are younger. If we do, and can flourish after 60, why not create environs where we can share our talents, wisdom, and perhaps if some kids under 50 want to learn, we could share the valuable life skills and knowledge with some of the coming generations who sincerely wish to break away from the societal and social decay that appears to be crippling the minds and future of our children as the experiment with digital mindset shows its toxic effects on our children of the present generations.

lift your mind out of the box that most people live in to understand what can be possible instead. Creative houses built from the best treasures of our past, created by ancestors who loved the Art and Craftsmanship more than the profit… the life-time quality of construction more than the built-in-obsolescence of modern manufacturing.

We can alter the course of things that are becoming apparent consequences that have been said to be 1,000 times worse than asbestos or tobacco to the health of humans, bees, and many other things affected by high frequency. From the brain tumours, inflammation of the brains of kids under 7, the loss of short term memory showing up in kids who depend on computers and smartphones for their database of facts, calculating, and spellchecking all words. Thus the brain without exercise is becoming weak when it should be getting trained for a life of abstract thinking, visualization, calculations, and manifesting thus with a well-tooled imagination that can use ingenuity to figure things out instead of the phone. How do we transform this poorly planned transition into the high tech age if we dumb down the populace in the process while the AI computing is growing in capacity and ability? Soon it will not be as hard for a computer to “Outthink and out-create the human being if they continue down the hill of intellectual decline.

I believe that much of this loss of brainpower is due to the addiction to cloud storage off-human in a computer hard drive, smartphone, or other devices instead of doing the work inside their heads to store and retrieve, calculate and formulate conclusions based on deduction, induction, or simply the synthesis of solutions with the variety of options available but not sequenced or assembled so that the public can understand what their potential is, let alone figure out how to tap into that, maximize the impact in a positive way on our world, and thus move humanity toward cooperation and peaceful solutions to upcoming issues that normally foretell of world war.

The keys to our success are the children we teach today, give the keys to, and open the doors to what is possible instead of convincing the kids there is no hope for success as defined in a way that benefits consumerism, division in society, poverty/riches chasms that bring about violent rebellions and wars over the basic necessities when hoarded by the rich instead of used to better life for all species.

Once upon a time we built houses that were sent from Texas to the Badlands of North Dakota and all around Texas. Now we are focused on carrying on the work of the founder, BWK, and completing the model of a town that could have been created out of Salvage, called Salvage, Texas. The BnB to see what it is like to sleep, live, and possibly alter the course of your life, your dreams of what is possible, and even your occupation. Become one of the many who reach their success financially through the Salvage industry, producing more millionaires from scratch than any other industry in America. Join the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance!

I pray as we look for solutions that our country remembers how it takes the freedom to create, to solve the local problems with locals and not think the global governments or corporations are going to be looking out for the best interests of the masses, given the profit motive for stockholders is written into law, protecting them from the masses rather than uniting them with the people as if they are one, not opposed instead due to the rich running the corps and government and the poor being the ones to pay for and suffer bad administration of the assets of the people, the decisions to go to war, and the continuation of the Federal Reserve which is able to move the economy up or down with a single meeting and decisions made by the banks, the rich, and the masses be damned.

If we take the treasured materials used by our ancestors and use it to build a nation of downsized organic hOMes that people could move into as the economy faces the food shortages on the horizon even if we do not go to war as the leaders of so many countries seem to be threatening. The weather will determine if the farmers get to produce food and the flooding has stopped that for millions upon millions of acres, not even over for the season as we enter the hurricane season now. Where is the preparation and warning, the measures being taken to get the kids ready to thrive, survive, or at least help the elders stay alive so as to capture the wisdom, knowledge, and life skills that will slip away as the elders pass. We can do better.

Let us unite behind the idea of empowering the masses to take the treasure and convert it to houses as we salvage the flooded homes, businesses, barns, and use it to build with rather than toss it away as if there is an unlimited supply of new materials to build with and the bigger is better policy of homebuilding in America must be put to death. Please start considering the cost of a new house of massive square footage to be a sore on the Earth rather than a toxic Dream House that will be worth your debt enslavement for 30 years of your life… or more. Now that the real estate bubble is bursting and the elders can not liquidate their prized savings account, their house, due to the issues or the damage from the weather.

The bell tolls for thee… sooner or later we all have to face the loss of income to savings from inflation, the taking by the banks, or simply the many scams and theft now possible in the cyber world where your identity can be stolen and your credit lost, your life ruined by an anonymous person on the far side of the world. How do you protect yourself and are you constantly afraid of losing all things tangible and digital, like your phone, bank accounts, credit cards, home, car, and other financed luxuries you are enjoying without concern for now?

Imagine that EMP the government warns of or the internet going down for a month. Could you survive emotionally and for some, physically due to prescription needs thus unfilled, and the social platform shock of loss when millions lose their friends, lovers, and family who were only linked by a phone with all the contact information stored digitally, thus no way to retrieve it unless there is a hard copy. I remember when there was no digital and all hard copies for all things, some I still have in boxes from 4 decades back unlike the many crashed hard drives, virus infected or simply age, once gone, all the pictures, data, and thus life stored on a disk is gone too. Ouch.1

So the theme of this essay is simply one of waking up to the need to downsize before the rest of the Baby Boomers jump off the Dream Home Boat too. With the average person at 55 years old only having $25,000 of savings in the bank, needing Social Security for any hope of surviving at today’s food and energy costs, the future for the Baby Boomers who lived high on the luxury and debt train for this generation, the future looks bleak. If they do not own a house, rents keep going up. If they do not have a garden, food costs are skyrocketing. If they are sickly and do not have insurance or a doctor in the family, they are in trouble for care after 60 unless the public coffers are opened to take care of the many who are out of shape and in need of constant care, drugs, or other addictive measures just to stay alive, not depressed, or out of pain. Sad times for the populace that is supposed to be the leading society in the world, in their own minds at least. Why are 50% of the people on anti-depressants, alcoholic thriving, drug addiction unhampered in its growth as new forms of chemicals that destroy the human minds are handed out as if to tempt them to destroy their own bodies, lives, and perhaps even souls during this lifetime.1

What happens when you get to the top of the stairs, the corporate ladder per se, and then find out the house, the rooms, the whole illusion of a big house that will last forever crumbles like the fireplace that fuel fed, gave heat to those within. NOW that is gone! Where are you? Still see the house and dreams in your mind?

What happens when the stairwell collapses at last?

We can give kids the gifts of a great mind, body, and perspectives that they are able to do so much, fix what is broken in our society, and perhaps create a new millennium of peace and prosperity if we can get the greedy leaders out of the way and find some that will focus on the preservation of the world, quality of life for the masses as opposed to opulence for few who seem to deem themselves equal to kings and gods without regard for the suffering of the animals, people, or planet.

Indeed the imbalance will inevitably be altered but not necessarily balanced as the two sides come to clash when the resources decline, people starve, get desperate, and drop all formalities of morals, respect, truth, or honor to survive, feed their children, family, and take from any who have what they need to make that possible. If it were not a repeated cycle in history as such weather changes happen and droughts, suffering, and migrations of people fleeing chaos alter the societies in all countries… for none are spared in such global events. Please consider downsizing and altering our course by changing how you live now, preparing for a time when abundance is not the norm, thus you will thrive when others do not want to be alive.

Salvage your life, your house, your town, your world instead of destroying what is left of the planet to repeat by committing the same mistakes we just spent a century learning the consequences of, and unable to fix most of the problems we as humans have caused that all living being suffer from, pollution, poisons, and people included. I hope you will join me in sharing the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance with others who want to abandon our modern consumerism society and return to a more life-skilled organic and simpler life that is free from the high-frequency chaos from too much electromagnetic stimulation. If people learn that the alternative is possible, how well we can thrive by taking this path, then change will happen naturally as more humans choose a path that will help salvage our world and create a paradise for the kids who will steward our planet next.

Savor your day, your treasures, and your knowledge so that you may be the gift we need to make the planet a better place to live.

Imagine a Collector Playing Card series to teach you how to be a Salvage Builder or Salvage Miner, & thus create your Riches and hOMes.

Imagine: The Salvage, Tx. Collector Card Series For Tiny Texas Houses W/ How To Board Game Coming Soon.  Help?

Imagine: The Salvage, Tx. Collector Card Series for Tiny Texas Houses w/ How To Board Game Coming Soon. Help?

I think I see it on the horizon… at last… Wii can come together to finish manifesting a dream!

There a possibility that Wii, (the “I” known as Darby and all of you “I”s too) can join together to create somewhat of a Sustainable Organic Cottage building game that teaches Salvage Mining, Salvage Building, thus a style of living toxin-free and organically in one’s unique home.

Better yet, a miniature coffee table book/card deck that I hope that will bring into the average person a new picture of how to build, to find a place to put the home, and the issues, code, deed restrictions, and other problems much like a game of Monopoly teaches real estate investing, this teaches about becoming millionaires in the Salvage Industry. I hope to bring into popularity through the gaming, the imagination, the ability to exchange tokens for real products in the warehouses at Salvage, Texas so that when you play poker for chips, you in real stuff.

It will open the doors to imagination and careers in so much as the game of salvaging and building the houses using the cards, creating the dream tiny houses, being in the business, and using parts and pieces from the many well known tiny houses I have created to guide people, as well as to begin and venture from planning, visualizing, and building the tiny dream cottages many now yearn for. This could be done by so many of the kids and adults looking for housing, and without much government assistance, just places to store materials, assemble and set up houses. Human energy, ingenuity, imagination, and perhaps a few elders to help teach the basics of carpentry, electric, and plumbing enough to create tiny houses for all you love… as well as a career.

Join us in this adventure of creating a game that will teach all, inspire the kids to imagine their tiny organic cottage and know how to build it one day. We can teach with the tools of knowledge that hold the attentions of young and old alike. To create games, flash cards, and the urge to merge trash and treasure coming from the efforts of the ancestors and us working together. Mother Earth will cheer us on as we unleash the power of the imagination instead of stripping the last of the resources still virgin on our world.

Never let the lack of support from others keep you from chasing your dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem to others, they may still be achievable for you.

I have a globally recognized style of Pure Salvage Building from the Tiny Texas House series that is sustainable, beautiful, and organic as well as unique so that following globally has inspired me to create a series of card sets as playing cards in the business card size. This collectible series of decks will range from My Tiny Texas Houses Series using exterior and interior pictures as coffee table books, but come apart, fit in your purse, and we can also use as playing cards but going much further as I can use the windows, doors, floors, beamed ceilings, kitchens, baths, and other angles to create the decks used for the game board.

From the Rubble comes the Riches if you know what to look for… but then again, who would not call this find a treasure?

The first series of decks will be based on the best 30 houses which range from 67 square feet to 360 square foot first floors with many rare and unique windows as in the Arched Zebu and her sister Vicky Zebu which can be found online still I think in picture form.

The “Love House” 12′ x 21′

The goal is to create a collectible series but also have them be playing cards, a deck with every book and if possible, the magnetic binder to hold them all together, allow them to be used, handed out, looked at, and reassembled knowing you have a full deck each time… and making the cards lost, quite collectible.

The backs of the cards will have pictures and my information for promoting Pure Salvage Living what I wish, but also the series will be good as flash cards to learn the types of woods, cuts, milling from shiplap, sidings, floorings, doors, windows, antique hardware, stained glass windows identification, sinks, tubs, and much more so as to teach the language of salvage to millions with a game. Keep in mind, more millionaires are made out of the salvage business than any other on the planet.

Next, having been a magician as a child, card tricks are my favorite form of easy entertainment so each deck will have some cool secret features using the shaved deck features, sticky card tricks, and other ways to give each deck a few extra selling points at no virtual extra cost.

Given this series, I am also looking to pull a publisher to help market it possibly rather than do all of it in-house, even with the modern internet tools, mainly due to the clout of someone like your company joining me in creating a globally collectible, fully language compatible and with my global following, newsletter, and other aspects of my career on TV, online, and successful serial entrepreneurship.

The decades of my many occupations included sales of many things, the most novel by far, the Pet Crabs (1979) in my younger days… I spread them from Florida to Texas, Boston, Chicago, and even up in North Dakota. I spread the Crabs until they became the best selling the highest volume novelty product sales the year after the Pet Rock. I do understand the novelty gifts sales cycle and realize real success will require deep pockets to supply the millions of cards this will lead to with huge capital required.

February 2007, the first two which can still be stayed in for a night at Salvage, Texas as our guesthouses… and museum pieces of Art you can sleep in… Salvaged Art Houses come to life.

I can launch and do much alone, but my goal is the impact the cards and concepts can have on children being born today to create with salvage, with trash rather than rape the world of its last resources, ship them around the world and throw away the great treasure we still have which I have built houses from that nearly all people see as sensible. 
Now to inspire the younger generations to help the older folks downsize in creating sustainable and healthy non-toxic houses that will form tiny villages for elders and kids one day.

Questions for the publishers are yet to be answered and the question comes first to me: Could we do this in-house, with the support of our following, an in-house Kickstarter? What do you all think? Would you buy a coffee table book that would come apart, be a deck of cards, or board game, collectible, and some decks could show you how to build your dream house, from framing to finish out, plans and all… in a deck of tiny business card sized cards. E-book and downloads for those far away too possibly to save on postage, print out locally. Thoughts anyone?

IF you know anyone and want to invest in such a crazy new idea, based on a known demand, a product line with a global following, Are you up to publishing the first of the series at my cost, then possibly helping ramp up and joining me if you see what I see on the horizon to compensate for food costs going us, house sizes will go down and new ways to live will come, playing more cards being one of them if I do this right.

Oh yes, did I mention the tokens or chips that will be convertible to real buying power for salvaged materials in my warehouses? Imagine a Playing chip that could be converted to real things to build a dream just like the cards shows could be possible?

I Hope someone sees this message who realizes who this is, what Tiny Texas Houses are, the following, and the potential if you do consider lines of cards that you back now and then. I own a treasure trove of pictures and rights to use them and more, go back now that the owners have personalized them, as well as build more and document them as we do, for a new deck each time we build a new house for the BnB where people can come stay in the house, the deck of cards that is their dream tiny hOMe for the future. Thanks for taking the time to move this through the channels fast as I plan to pick a partner by the 22nd of this magnificent May. Are you too slow?

If I just order through a company, I am not sure you can compete with the new little guys that do not have the overhead of history, people on retirement, big salaries, buildings, etc so I will fully understand if you can not compete in price on the 10,000 card order but the long run is why I am contacting you rather than writing off the stalwarts.

While I have loved Bicycle playing cards from my childhood magician days, young adulthood, and even when I lived in Las Vegas… so the partnership at this time as a writer, yes there are books besides the cards, the idea of writing these tiny books like Lloyd Kahn did with my “Red Mascot Under the Rainbow” house shot on the front of his book on “Tiny Houses, Simple Shelter”. He created a tiny 1 1/4″ x 2″ book for the book launch in NY city and the novelty book was so cool, especially with my house on the cover and me on the first page, but too small for this project. The kids loved them so much he printed more just to hand out to them. Mine will be Business card size and playing card thickness as my goal.

If you would like to support me, to perhaps become a part of this in the many aspects if it goes big such that it could then make investment income for you as well as fuel the dissemination of so much information that many would benefit long after I am gone as it will solely fund Salvage, Texas being manifested for all to visit and grow from in the decades ahead. Pulling from the past to create solutions for the future based on what BWK spent his last decade researching and promoting before shutting the operations down to take a sabbatical from the business world. Will he come back. Don’t know, but till then, help me create a cool game, collectible educational and fun card game set, and perhaps inspire others to create their own sustainable organic cottages one day too.

Darby Lettik

Trinity, Sweet Trinity, to help you find your way.

So join us and let us know if you can or want to help finish what BWK started years ago and left for us to finish into what he knew Wii could.
