Have a great weekend!

Good morning!

Sorry… picture today 🙁  we are headed to the Lake and there just wasn’t enough hours in the day.  I hope each and every one of you  have a safe & wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  My next post will be around noon on Tuesday….I’ll miss ya!

If you place an order at my Chic n’ Scratch Shack, shipping will resume on Tuesday, May 27th…thanks!

p.s. I’ve gotten lot of emails asking about the status of Moonlight and since today is Friday I thought I would update you.  The fight is still on…you wouldn’t believe the efforts… amazes me and scares me all at the same time. I’ve never done such a thing, but I’m kinda glad I’m doing it.  Sorta like the time I stood in line for Bob Seger tickets for almost 24  hours… in the winter (but that paid off, I had front row seats, the pictures my friends took were so good they showed the fillings in his teeth….I know TMI  (too much info).  Hope that made ya laugh and didn’t scare you away….see ya!
