Tick, tick, tick

As some wise man said, timing is everything. I can either blog or make money. Not both. Work here is wonderful, I'm busy. The coffers need to be filled and I shall not waste this great bounty.

Yesterday I stepped through the door of my shop, flipped the open sign and did not sit down. I missed breakfast and lunch with a smile on my face. The computer was the last thing on my mind....I must make hay while the sun shines.

So, please excuse me while I make a living....


It's as if everyone in town jumped on the phones and said, "Let's all run over to Stephen's."

I promise I shall write a piece as soon as this great business slacks off....promise.

Thank you for your patience.

Stephen

    1. Funny, to think that Obama helped Stephen build the successful type of business that Stephen runs.

    2. It couldn't have been Obama. See, Stephen's business is successful. If it were Obama's doing, Stephen would have gone bankrupt after millions in federal grants.

  13. Blogging is fun, it's the release of stress, the sharing of laughter and information. It's minutes passed when nothing else is on the schedule, it's sometimes hours in a lonely hotel room, this connection, with these people, that thread that reminds you what is real.

    But it is not a substitute for that which provides, which puts food on the table and the light in the eye of the one who holds us at night.

    Write when you can. We'll be here.
