Will post more pics soon. Everybody's working hard and painting everything that doesn't move. Stocking shelves and racks. Got a bar for a counter that looks great. Hated to drill a hole in it for the computer stuff.
Trying to get the software to place an ad here. The great office guru is that is. I'm behind the curtain shooting smoke and sounding whistles OZ style.
