    Nothing makes my day go slower...

    Than checking the UPS status and seeing the 'Out For Delivery' status!

    UPS has to try to deliver at least once before they will let you just pick it up.

    Jack the Chocolate Lab here in the shop knows when UPS guy will be here before any on in the shop. Jack get a BIG BONES from him each time. Believe me Jack knows the sound of BIG BROWN coming. LOL Even if he is not coming to my shop but one of the shop here Jack is at his door before he opens it ready to jump in and get his bone.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I work from home about 20 miles from town, so I'm happy to let brown bring the boxes on out. It's actually the highlight of my day/week. And I've been bad the last week placing orders. I'll have brown coming out several times over the next week or so...

    I tend to only leave the 'compound' once or twice a week
