Hey Dave, what's the deadline for placing an order? And how about New Years Day? Lots of folks need to start the new year with a good breakfast!

I especially liked the extra reinforced sides, top and bottom...stur sticks are like magic. I use em more for other things than i do for stirring paint!this man knows how to pack a box. I'm betting he's so good he could figure out a way to ship it hot and it'd still be hot when it arrived!!

The past few months have been a bit chaotic. Bought a house, working to get my parents moved into one of the apartments in the house. They moved from Florida and are still not in. Also, so far I have not had a slow down this winter (maybe in a few weeks). Plus, my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. So, only plan on spending time with my family, opening presents, eating good food, and drinking good beer on Saturday and Sunday. Driving no more than one hour away. Taking Monday off, and the my wife has her operation on Tuesday, and then we begin dealing with the chit that is cancer for the next many months. Trying not to think about it and staying in the moment.

Pete, I hope nothing but the best for your wife. I am undergoing some quite traumatic stuff involving my daughter. I don't wish to go into detail, but I can empathize with your situation.

I've been swamped with work and, for that, I consider myself very fortunate. It helps keep me grounded and sane in these tough times.

By the way, I don't remember the last time I heard of one's parents moving from Florida to Mass. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around? Man, they are giving Florida a bad reputation!

Thanks Jonh,
Like you, the work helps keep my mind busy. But, I would really love some time off to breath. Parents came back so they could be with their family. They did not move to retire, and my mother never really loved being down there.

John, as a father, I extend my hopes and prayers for your daughter's well being.
