Week in Review

As most of you know I am in New Jersey for a couple weeks learning the “coffee biz” from my Uncle Mike. What a week it has been so far- I am learning SO much. I am more excited than ever about what we are going to bring to Clyde when we open our shop there.  The only thing I think that has been harder than I expected is the early mornings- I am talking the dawn of time itself. Every day.  By 9 every night I am falling out of my clothes and into bed.  Here’s a few pix from the week so far…..

Tonight I am going down to Atlantic City with my Uncle Dave and Aunt Debi, so in my next post I will show you some pix of this area and some of the fun stuff I’ve been doing outside of the coffee shop.  I miss everyone, but I can’t wait til we get this going in Clyde.  What a great time we are going to have!  

Oh yeah- I almost forgot: last night there was this guy with just a guitar singing at the shop and he wanted to try out a song he’s been learning- a song that has really touched him and he loves it so much. Then he sang “I Loved Her First.”  hee hee hee> Maybe we can get somebody to sing that in our shop!

    I loved the pictures! I’m so excited to drink coffee in YOUR shop! Maybe I’ll come and read some poetry I wrote for Kingdom Advance! (remember that?) “My God sees what you’re doing around the corner and behind the door…”
