What kinds of things do you do on a daily basis?

I had mentioned that we had bought a flag with multiple colors and "OPEN" on
it. Judy hangs it out in the morning and brings it in if she has to leave or
for the night.

Been up a week or more now. Finally, today we sold to two different
customers. One bought a box of steaks (hooray!!) and a box of roasts
although he has purchased before.

The second customer bought just a few pounds of ground beef for the first
time, but having the sign out I think helped him make the decision to stop
as he drives by here a fair amount. He said he always planned (since August)
to stop, but just didn't get a round tuit.

I should have given him one (a round tuit that is). Then maybe he would have
stopped earlier:)

Sincerely,
