Canadians, good business and good Karma
(Tea table by Greg Hounsell, custom made teaset by me)
Greg is one of those fantastic and skilled guys you wish you could hang out with every Saturday making great art and discussing important topics. I delivered the teaset he ordered for his gf in November, and he is finishing the table for her birthday.
Here is a little story. Set out this am with the dogs and found a purse in the street, full of checks, credit cards, drivers license etc, all out of state. I brought it to the sheriff, because it looks like a nice young woman who may be new here, a grad student in chemistry. No local address, though, so I hope the sheriff works on it, and my missus is talking to the chem dept here. Then I go and make some deliveries and find that sales at stores were FAT. Excellent. Busines has been great all around, and it is important to remember that this blog is a commercial venture (hahahaha hoho!) and that sales equals groceries. I think karma wise trying to find that purse's owner cannot hurt my sales, right?
But there is more. Mags will be a test case for shipping to Canada this week. Much as I would love to commute north with big boxes, because I have done a ton of business the last 3 months with nice Canadians, I really have to try shipping. Canadians are so wonderful, the ones I know anyway.
So, thanks Mags, Greg, etc
