Farewell to the Doldrums

The Doldrums of Mid-Summer are coming to an end at the shop.   The Jersey Shore and the Cape are emptying out slowly for school preparation and the phones are ringing again.  We're taking a last little break these next three days.  Gillian going to Truro and I'm working limited hours.

We have a new shop member named Allison who's taking Gillian's place when she leaves in September.
They're going to hold down the Fort the last three days in August when I go to Martha's Vineyard to celebrate our Anniversary. (Joe and I were married there).

Here's a Birthday arrangement from Saturday.  All the pretty roses.
