The store's been open for about a month now, after being closed for five weeks for remodeling. It's been hard to find much spare time lately so updates have been non-existent. Now that things have settled back into a semblance of a routine, I should be able to update regularly.

The remodel was a lot of work: paneled a cinder block wall, widened a doorway, added a pass-through window in an interior wall, cut a doorway in a cinder block wall, finished out a 300 sqft addition with insulation and paneling, and more odds and ends that I care to dwell on. Neither of us having done this type of work before, I'm sure it took us longer than it should have. But now that we have all this experience behind us, we'd do it much faster ... we'd hire someone!

Actually, this entry is really only here so that I can post a scary picture. Boys and girls, power tools are dangerous and should only be operated under proper adult supervision.

You'd think that almost cutting your thumb off at 9pm on Saturday during July 4th weekend would mean that your ER visit might not be pleasant or timely. Luckily for me, it was both easy and quick. The only delay was caused by everyone wanting to come into the room to see the dummy who almost lost a thumb -- it was a slow night for them.

I'm glad you didn't lose your thumb. I'd say the thumb is one of the most important fingers. It's what helps us grasp things.

When you get a chance, stop by my blog and go down a few posts to leave a comment in order to be entered into a sweepstakes I'm having. The prize is a piece of my artwork.
