    It's tough to be a small shop and serving a mail-based clientele.

    How do you get away and accept packages ? Can't.

    make sure she has a good time, but see that she gets back on the airplane.

    Carol's husband, Lee, is having disc surgery -- he went under around noon today. She'll be taking off a few days to be with him during the initial part of his recovery.

    She should be back shortly -- I'd guess by the end of the week or sometime next week.

    Our own self serving interests don't diminish the sincerity of our good wishes !

    Could be. The last time we spoke, I inferred she'd be closing for a week or so, but I may have misunderstood.

    We communicate fairly regularly, so when I hear something, I'll post an update.

    Update

    From Carol. An update on Lee's surgery...

    "... Bob,

    I don't have a lap top or a blue berry, I just got home 8:30pm, it's been a long day. We got to the hospital at 10:00 am, at 1:30pm they finally took him in for surgery, surgery took 2 hours and he was in recovery for 3 hours.

    The surgery went ok...there was a (weird my computer screen just turned yellow...ok it's back to white) Ok back to what I was saying...there was a lot of inflammation and it made it very difficult, the spinal cord was nicked and a bit of fluid was split but it was quickly sticked up and glued. They were able to clean the area out and the nerve now has plenty of room now. But Lee must stay flat on his back til Wed. or he could develop meningitis. One other problem is he has a hiatal hernia so acid could come up and cause a ashma attack or get in his lungs if he lays flat. So they might have to raise it a bit 30 degrees at the most of and on depending on how he feels.

    So we are not out of the woods yet.

    That is it for now, will update you tomorrow night on his progress.

    Carol..."

    --------------------
    I passed on everyone's wishes for Lee's recovery and asked when she plans to return. When she replies, I'll post it.

    Further Update

    "... yes, my machine says I'm closed til Oct., Lee has two weeks he has to rest then two weeks of physical therapy.

    So you can tell them that I will be out for 2 weeks for sure and if they email me I will accept their items. I just didn't want walk-in people showing up or mystery boxes showing up.

    During my two weeks off, I will be caring for Lee since he can only sit for 30 min. 3 times a day, no bending or lifting anything heaver than a coffee cup but I brought a bunch of work home and will be working on. Maybe I will get caught up a bit.. ha!

    I just had a few guys send me 5 plus shutters at one time...that really messes me up when they do that. I need to think of a way to put it across to these guys to limit the items or it will take a lot longer than the 4 to 6 weeks.

    Carol..."

    -------------------------
    Hmmmm. I remember when I went in for a herniated disc. Afterward, the Doc said, "No heavy lifting." I said, "Huh? No heavy lifting? How am I supposed to take a whiz?"

    The nurse chuckled, but the Doc just gave me this strange look. I think surgeons are like accountants -- their sense of humor is surgically removed upon graduation from grad school.

    Don't be so quick as to send a shutter elsewhere. Living here on the east coast Carol could get a shutter repaired and back to me before some "expert" shops that I could drive to. All the time offering much better communication and service.
