In a rare treat I was awoken and greeted by Angi this morn, as she had to get up early to see Rozy off on a school trip. Well, I was actually awoken by the plaintive screams of Miranda, as Mama dared leave the confines of the house to greet the mother of the girl Rozy was going with. Oh yes, Angi is very much a slave to about 4 square feet of the house, as Miranda's level of separation anxiety extends to Angi even going to the bathroom, as she MUST accompany her there, each time! We so desperately hope she grows out of this soon, as it will make her inevitable move to School Age VERY difficult!
Last night was proof positive that it is time to switch to "Sumer Hours"! For the last week or so, business, as it usually does once the weather turns warmer, switches to the first hour of the day and right around 5.30 pm, with several more patrons coming in as we are setting up to close. Last night we were here until around 7.30, as folks just kept coming by! HEY, NO problem!! We'll stick around. Also, Angi has come up with the idea of 24 hour service, which we are kicking around the conference room! She can remember back to the "Garage Day's" when we would be burning the Midnight Oil almost every night, and there were times we would be doing service work for folks at one O'clock in the morning! We'll let you know on that later.
As mentioned, it was quite busy in the PM yesterday, having sent both the Dawes road bike and the Iron Horse conversion off to new homes! They were QUITE happy with their picks, even to the point of the young lady who choose the Iron Horse vocalizing a list of "Hipster" customizations she had planned for her new ride! You Go Girl!
Also, as to be expected, the Ladies 24" Cruiser found a home in the first hour of being open, as the lady happened to be passing by, and instantly fell in love with it, sighting how PERFECT it was! Yea, we get a LOT of that when it comes to 24" cruisers!! And people wonder why I don't "deal" on them! They are, like, freaking PLATINUM!!!
This morning was a Whiz Bang as well, sending the Ezip conversion out, first thing, to a gent who got to hear my "Morning Voice" around 8 am this morning, when he called to inquire about it. Yea, I sound a little like gravel in a disposal, but more tired!
Not to mention, we have already had the beginning of our normal flood of Saturday repairs, which I have to jump on shortly, as I have two GEMS to work on as well! The glorious Specialized 29'er, AND a SAH-WEET Old School Cannondale! Jumpin Jimney!!
So, with that, I bid you all a very fond adieu! Hope to see you soon!
