We could not have made it without the loyal patronage of our customers. So many of which have been shopping with us since we first bought the meat shop. Thank you so much for sticking with us - it has not always been easy. We had a learning curve to ascend that was difficult to say the least. Even now - I know we don't do every thing right but each day we do our best and know that our staff does as well. For this we are thankful.
But here we are now, we have staff so we don't have to do 10 and 12 hours a day, 6 days a week any more. We have the ability for the first time ever to take a 2 week holiday - in a row! We can enjoy the summer doing things we have never done, like go to Fintry camping, hike up to Paul's Tomb, actually go to the beach across the street from us and soak up some rays, to be a tourist in our own town. Take a Saturday and go fishing - Randy is doing that right now!
Never have we been afforded the opportunity to be able to choose to work or not. Until now.
So thank you all so much. You have no idea how much it means to be able to not work so much.
And please don't worry about not seeing me in the store. At this point I am in the store not because I have to work but because I want to work, and believe it or not there are days when I really do - just want to work!
