Happy New Year everyone! … below is Staveland as it is today, 1/1/09… 7 degrees outside at noontime… brrrr. Talk about a Mom and Pop business… Martha and I are in here today taking care of odds and ends (1099's etc) so we can leave for St. John tomorrow. We had a wonderful Norwich Christmas with grandson Simon (3.5) shown below who, as I type this, is flying back to Boise. And we sure are looking forward to warm weather where, of course, I will working soooooo hard coming up with new designs with which to torment you all.. heh, heh, heh. PS: we had a wonderful Holiday season in Staveland thanks to you.
