It is Monday September 21 2015 and I am stoked!
Nana and Pop Pop have a new grandson (who can’t sleep more than a few hours at a time). Suddenly a harrowing shriek has females launching from beds - Ninjas of the night bearing bottles, breasts, butt wipes, and barf cloths to secure the future of America - AMEN!! It’s not even midnight and round 2 and 3 are a certainty. Could this be the long sought explanation for graying hair?
After Laura’s return - having survived the gauntlet - she got caught up on business and then we headed to San Antonio for several days visiting Museums and the River Walk for a well deserved break. After four days I took her to the airport for Gauntlet 2 in Tucson while I returned home through Texas traffic (similar to the WW II “Battle for the Pacific”).
My son Josh and I got Artisan all caught up over the next month. When Laura returned near the end of August there was a halo of lightening about her. Spock and Kirk never faced such alien malevolence. Thankfully we had plans for Pompano Beach in Florida 9/12 through 9/19 and simply floundered in the waves, sighed, and mumbled “love yous” for a week.
The trip recharged us and now we are in full Artisan mode; we are on target and will be caught up in four days. When times seem overly demanding I guess we rise to the occasion, raise the bar, and return to routine with renewed fervor.
If things continue to do well, we may still be taking orders for Christmas delivery in early December, but we hope most folks will order before our Thanksgiving Journey back to our daughter’s growing family in Tucson. God Bless All.
