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.

We lost all three phone lines this afternoon, including the one that runs our charge/debit machine. I hauled out the clunky old work horse that manually swipes a credit card... hard to believe that it was once considered a modern device itself. But... it enabled us to take charges until the phones came back on — two hours later, and provided some nostalgia for customers: "I remember those machines!" Cute kid comment of the day — a young girl looking at the shelf of wind up toys said loudly and excitedly — "this must be where Santa got those!!" All adults looked at each other and smiled.
