The topic: I’m back


I hope the loss of Cecil helps in the long run. U.S. airlines are no longer handling the spoils of the murder of endangered species. Donations have greatly helped some of the organizations that are studying these species. Australia has banned all import of these spoils (I refuse to call them trophies, they are not). The world is finally taking note.


It's been hot and humid here. I finally got completely caught up with my paperwork last week and left the office. I did a bunch of laundry and actually got it put away. I made some new stamps. Had problems. Made more stamps. The stamps I made in the morning were so much better than the ones later in the day which had me wondering if the ambient heat was a factor. I'll have to contact support. I found out the hard way I don't want to waste the polymer, the price has really gone up since I got my first order back in May.

Cut some more cardstock, made a few new projects, I need to photograph them and will post them later.

We had passes for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. last night, but we didn't go. Neither of us anticipated standing in line in the heat for two hours, then getting home late. Brian's been so busy and he's worn out. It's great that he has the sales, but he works seven days a week and if something happens, it pushes the customers back. Right now, his lead time is about nine weeks.  People have asked if they paid more, could they get the links done sooner, but Brian won't do it. It's not fair to the customers that have been waiting. Others tell him to hire someone. Yeah, he used to have employees and most years, they made more than Brian did (he was a great boss). And then there's the problem of training someone to do the work as well as Brian does, who has his work ethic. Yeah...no employees. Well, raise the prices. Which Brian won't do. He refuses to gouge people, just because he could. It's just not right. (I love his moral values...) So, there's not a lot of extra time. He told me last night "we don't need to go to free movies now, we can afford the twenty bucks it would cost us".

I have a small amount of paperwork to do, dishes in the sink and I really do need to vacuum and dust. I'd best get to it before it gets too hot.
