A taste of Summer Action (hopefully!)

Wow, what a weekend! I forgot what it feels like to be 'in the weeds'. The place was jumping all weekend. As exhausting as it was, it was also very satisfying to see my first lines of the season. I remember Dad talking about having to make ice cream late into the night, but I was skeptical. Until this weekend. Closed up at 9:30 on Saturday night, ordered a pizza, and cranked up the batch freezer. About four hours and a dozen batches later, I was restocked and ready for an even warmer Sunday. And ready for bed. No Brass Cat for me that night. No need to feel sorry for me though. Took a little pressure of the tight money management that is the off-season.

With the cooler weather back (hopefully just for a short stay), I have a little time to catch up on things and get better prepped for that summer pace. And to think about what this blog will be about. And how to keep it interesting and spicey while keeping in mind that most of my family could be reading at any given moment. Do I throw in a story about a late night romantic tryst by the pond here and there (even if I have to fabricate it)? How much about the biz can I include without making it read like a commercial? Should I make it political? Yah, right. Will it be all about the madcapped adventures of Rudy, Reej, Full Pint, and the rest of the gang? Definitely about photos, although I didn't have time to take any this past weekend. I guess the answer is I don't really know. We'll both just have to just jump in and go with the flow.

ps. Thanks to Greg for linking me from his Easthampton New City blog

Jimmiboy,

I am honored to be the first one who puts a comment on this statement. I am with you about the hope for better weather and I really would like to hear some stories about (your) romantic datings. I am sure that you will find the right words to make them interesting to read.
Congratulations on your webside. The Top 10 is my favorite. Photos say sometimes more than words - and the fine combination of words and photos in your presentation is hard to find.

Congratulations!
Keep on going!!

Joerg
