Changes with the Fall
Some of you may remember that I asked for some marriage advice a while ago. I was very gratified at the large volume and the quality of the advice shared and the interest shown. Well, now is the time to start putting those bromides, proverbs and pithy sayings to work. Last Saturday, I was married, and I have to say that I am a happy man.
It was a day full of family and friends, good food and only a few weather challenges. (It was 90 degrees, very humid and I was in a wool suit coat … getting hitched outside.)
Mary and I will treasure your good advice and kind wishes, and I will be looking for your advice in trying to make the case that a “small shop” really is in the 11 to 12 hundred square foot range. (Not too big, not too small … you know, in the wise words of Goldilocks: “just right!”)
