Header taken from "Messenger" - Art by Kurt Vonnegut

Well we've been open for a while now & already had our first Art Show. It was a great success & I can't wait to have more! We've got more cleaning up in the back half of the bottom floor that we should be finished with soon & then we can start on the top floor, again. Our goal is to remodel the small bathroom that is already upstairs, so that we can go ahead and move in! So in about 6 months, we should be living Downtown!!

Another "Vacation"

Well I was on vacation last week and guess what I did……Yep…worked. I did actually get a good bit done on the floor at the loft. I will have to take some pictures tomorrow and get them posted. I spent one day sweeping up everything and the other days scraping :) the last two days though I had so many blisters on my hands (total of 5) that I did more resting then anything else. Luckily for me I had a cool place to go rest every now and then, I just walked right across the street, where I spend all my days when not on vacation, and took a break on the couch :) Well its getting late and Its back to work tomorrow…I’ll get pictures up soon I promise!! :)


What the…???

What the heck is wrong with people now aday?? In the past two days I have heard one horrible story and been the victim of two stories that make you just say…’What in the heck is getting into people?!!?’
First, yesterday, Josiah and I went to his parent’s house to show his mom how to start his motorcycle (so when people are looking at it she can show them how) and he saw something on one of those shiny pipe things; at first we just thought it was like bird poop or something, but later on he realized…that’s an egg shell and that’s egg!! Someone had egged his motorcycle!! Who does that??? And…what…did they just happen to have an egg in the car??
Then, today, I read a story on Tass’ blog about a lady named Jane Tomlinson who is suffering from terminal cancer and cycling from San Francisco to New York to raise money for charity. She had reached the halfway point and was cycling along the road when some ****** in a dodge pickup threw a full can of coke at her as they drove past!! Another….WHO DOES THAT, REALLY???
Joy (my sister-in-law) and I have been riding bikes and occasionally rollerblading for the past week and decided to change it up today and go walking/running. So we left from my house and started walking down the road to get to the mile track just down the road. Well, as we are walking some guys drive past us and honk and yell...of course we just ignored them and gave them that look…you know the look…you’ve either given the look or received the look at some point in time (depending on if you are a girl or guy). So we carry on about our merry way and walk, and run a little, for two miles and then head back to my house. We are running along talking, minding our own business when something hit my arm…and it hurt! Joy was like…”they just threw a tennis ball at us”…which my reply was “yeah and it hit me!!” After it clicked what really happened I really wanted to just pick up the ball and take off after them and HURL that ball at their little bitty old crappy POS!!!! I mean seriously!! Who throws stuff at people biking and running down the road!! We think it was the same guys that yelled at us on our way to the track because it looked like the same car….maybe it was…maybe it wasn’t.
But three stories that really just make you think….what is wrong with people!!?!?!?!?
