Hats, Hops and Everything in Between

August 9th, 2009

Paul here, I’m writing this at 10:40pm.  Paul’s tired… Paul’s sewing… Paul’s on the computer sitting with THE NEW shop cat.  Our cat, Bettina, moved in today.  She’s scared. She was recently hiding under a pillow, though I don’t know where she is now.  Maybe she found her way into the basement or she is digging up deceased feline friends in the backyard.  The repeated question is “Where did Bettina go?”  She’ll be ok, I know it. The other Paul has a friend over to help with finishing the invites (20 days till our opening).  I Paul, am stressing the “t” in my words. TIME TO TYPE…

Let me tell you briefly about our day.
