Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Sending sheep to Cuba
A customer came in today asking for a rooster alarm clock that we sold years ago. As far as I know, they're no longer available, which she was sad to hear, (but, at least I remembered what it was; sometimes no matter how hard I try, I just can't remember the item they're asking for... I thought I would never forget anything but twenty five years of items is a lot to remember.) She was consoled and excited when she saw the singing sheep. Its song: "thank God I'm a country boy." She is taking it to Cuba to give to a retired priest who lives "in the middle of nowhere" and runs a farm museum showing children the way farms used to be in Cuba. And, he really enjoys battery operated singing animals. hmmm .. I bet they didn't have battery operated singing sheep back in the old days. I love knowing that Joie de Vivre can brighten the day of a retired Cuban priest.
