|So Yesterday morning, at 6:30 a.m., the wife and I found ourselves|
at work and not happy. By 4:30 p.m. we were 370 miles away and
in the middle of Kansas.
|My home town is one mile square and in the 70's-80's|
had the most specialized hospital in the State. It's nickname
was the "Mini Mayo". Imagine DeLorean's and Porche's
on the bumpy brick road, not yellow brick road.
|The big gates in the last picture actually were built, along|
with a damn around the whole town, by the Army corp of engineers.
They close and keep the town from flooding and it
works only smaller towns down the river
now flood much worse.

|So tomorrow it's floral time. We try to show all|
of the florals being used in a design. So this
means that they have to be shot separate in a
"silo" to show exactly what it looks like.
|A "sillo" is when a picture on the page has no background,|
It just kind of floats there. Another popular name for this
is a "knockout" just depends on how you were brought up.
|It's a very different line than usual. These are|
shots fron the cage.
|These are part of the new Girl theme this year.|
|We happen to have one of the largest Easter themes|
out there. For some reason competitors are drop
it left and right from there lines, that's good for us!
|Not everything in these shots will make the|
2013 Spring & Summer line. We should
know better tomorrow since today was the
last day of our show in Dallas Texas.
Can't wait 104 degrees tomorrow and
were in the warehouse!!!

|Next week starts our Spring & Summer catalog|
and we needed to go prop shopping and Here's
what we found. 40,000 square feet of antiquing,
That's 10,000 square feet per hour it took in this joint.
|First room we went into and BAM!|
found that cool little boat for a bargain.
The ladder was found in hour three.
|Nothing say's Spring and Summer|
like a vintage baseball bat.
|Wacky carpenter rulers.|
|This year we have a little Girl's room theme|
and a little boy's room theme, you can guess
which room these will be for.
|Always need interesting things to stack|
merchandise on and get the photo going vertical.
|All three of us love pulleys and it looks like we|
purchased softballs instead of baseballs so
the bats are now softball bats instead of baseball.
|Pretty good haul. I hate prop shopping! but today|
we got out and saw lots of old people and talked to
bored house wives and kicked around a game plan
as a team. It was fun!
