Employees Recently

We have had some interesting times with employees recently. One employee who had been with us for over a year decided to go out for his birthday (He was 30 turning 31) I suspect that he had some previous drug or alcohol problems because as soon as he went out and started drinking he totally […]

Lunch with Mom

Talon and I went over to Overland Court to see my mom and they were in the dining area getting ready to eat. We decided to take mom to lunch. We signed mom out and loaded her into the car. We drove out to Eagle road and decided to go to Freddy’s Steak burgers. After […]

First post on the new server

A couple of months ago, our server took a dump. It was a good server and had been running for the most part of a decade. I decided that it was time to finally do the big upgrade and rebuilt it from scratch (with the exception of the RAID array which was newer). So I […]

Some of the joys of owning your own business

Got a call from our manager today and found out he was in the hospital the night before. He is unable to work and the “assistant manager” can’t work any more than his scheduled hours.

Grand Opening!!!

So, this post has been in drafts for about four years, so I am really having to think back to the grand opening of our Idaho Falls store. It was a bright and sunny day and the birds were singing…. just kidding! 🙂 Most of the day was a total blur. Being the introvert that […]

Good to be home

Got home from a long day of work. My lovely wife made some homemade pizza which was YUMMY-O-LIOCIOUS! I then spent the last thirty minutes wresting with my little five year old.  He is sure a sweet little guy and I love him more than he will probably ever know! I hope when he grows […]
