    I had a major loss tonight

    There was an electrical fire in my shop this afternoon. A lot of damage. It will take a week or more to get back to a working shop. Good thing I have great ins.*I am exsulted, Jarrod was a real wonder tonight he did so much after all the fire personal left. Getting thing that needed to be saved sorted out of the mess. I've never had a major loss and i at a loss for words at how i feel. But this to shall pass.*
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Its something all shops fear. The fire Marshall said to me right off we were very glad to hear you had fire proof cabinets.

    No one was in the shop. I had left at 4 after the last customer came in to pick up there work. The cash register went also.
    2 customer losses, a 20 k painting being restored and a oriental box. I've already to to the owner of the painting. He was very nice about it. That was my biggest worry.

    Sorry to hear that, Dave. Thank goodness Jarrod was there to pitch in. I hope you get things sorted out with the insurance and get back in operation ASAP.
