    Ha! Seems Legit

    As some of you know, I used to make quite a few cutting boards. I still have photos of a few of them on my website if you dig deep enough. Today I got this message in my email:

    I don't want to be selfish. I could share several of those customers per day.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Those types of emails are always good for a laugh... I get one about every 2-3 months asking for prices and shipping terms, etc.... my website has a shopping cart attached and it's just a matter of clicking the button, but they're still good for a chuckle....

    at least we know some one, some where is looking at our web site.... right ?
