Re: calling Alex and Jame J

I've said it a few places already, but I am SO thankful that both of you are alright. Alex, if you need it, I'll make my shop available for you if it would help. James, it's good to know you got a medical opinion and that it seemed positive!

What the.......? Silkiest hair? Everyone knows less hair is a sign of superior intelligence and virility that should really be praised, recognized and rewarded much more than it is. Be honest. You long for some luscious locks. I'd share, but It's long now so I'm probably too dumb to use scissors. ;)

the guy rent half of my nextdoor unit to is a screen printer. Dani gets back tomorrow night so maybe i can have her whip something up logo wise and Colin can print them. I think we'd probably be down in the single digits maybe $10/shirt range for multi-color designs. I'll look into this further.
