The meeting was to be held between 9.30am and 10.00am, but I was at the Shop before 9.30. A sheet of glass, which we had moved outside just yesterday had fallen and smashed, as a result of a stong, icy westerly wind. The shards of glass were strewn underneath the trailer and utility tyres, and needed to be swept up before anybody could drive away in the vehicle. I went to get the broom, but forgot the cow-hide gloves, and as I was gingerly picking up the fragile pieces, a car pulled in.
"Hello Helen, nice to meet you at last. This place looks terrific. I just know you will do well..."
What a greeting! There was more to come, however, as the hours slipped by - all so very encouraging and timely.
All this to say that our first ad for the Daily Pie will be in the August / September edition of High Life Magazine.
After the meeting, I raced home to tell the Machinist all that was discussed and - all is well. The grunt, the moxie, the determination, the excitement has returned, and we are now committed to a month.
Roll on August!
