So the YMCA started their annual Y-12 Lottery again last week – and the spouse and I contemplated whether we should buy a few tickets this year.  We usually buy 3 tickets a year – one for each of us – in support of the Y and been doing it for 12 years now – [..]

A long time customer came in today – to bid us farewell – as he has taken a job in another province – there are not many Optician Jobs in this town – he told us.  And he had to do what he had to do – as he had a young family of 4,  [..]

A customer came into our store today and asked for recommendations for a gift for his wife.   For a moment – I was stunned and after the initial shock I thought I should tell him where to get a real gift for the wife – not that I think his wife wouldn’t like games or [..]

The spouse only shops locally – well as much as possible – what about you?  In this economy, we have to buy what is most important and when we do buy something we try to get it locally – well except for the RayBan she bought online – she had no choice because no one [..]

We are not a pawn shop but after watching pawn stars – we can relate to them – and their customers.  While Rick, his old man and son – Big Huss (Corey) is trying to make a living – some customers calls them a rip off  – just because they can only offer them a [..]

Our store’s anniversary is just round the corner – we headed up to L&N signs to check out on the t-shirts that I wanted to print for myself, the spouse and the kid  – and maybe a few more for our regular customers.  L & N signs has worked with us for many years – [..]

Small business owners and entrepreneurs are pretty much daydreamers – and wanna-be-heroes – so the spouse said.   This week – we received in the post a magazine from CFIB and on its cover are three men – in sunglasses looking like heroes and that got me thinking – it’s true isn’t it – that we [..]

Our extended family was down from Ontario for a visit with their RV – and they were down in Hectanooga at their lodge last weekend.  This is a new RV that they had bought last year when rv financing was at its best rate – I too was tempted to get one – but because [..]

My daughter – Chloe is a very lucky kid !  she gets all sorts of gift from out customers – but having said that we have lots of good customers albeit the fact that we do get a few bad ones.   Today a  long time customer of ours brought in some silver dollars for Chloe [..]

Many smokers from around our store loved to stand around the back of our store – because we have a sort of cover up – from rain and sun – especially the wind from the sea.  So they stand at the back of our store – and smoke their lungs out.  Normally, we don’t mind [..]

While the spouse loved to support the downtown businesses and sell other downtown businesses to our customers, friends and family – there are some stuff she needs to buy online like  shoes womens must have – so she said.  She said she can’t find these shoes anywhere in town – so she buys them online [..]

The spouse has friends from all over the world because she used to for a hotel chain that allows her to travel for her work.  But it was when she was with this Spanish company – that she met more friends from around the world.  And if you ‘ve met the spouse – you will [..]

Yarmouth Farmer’s Market – opened during the weekend for the very first time in downtown Yarmouth – is a vibrant little place and a Farmer’s Market I can say I am very proud of.  Not only does the place look nice – it is going to be an all year round event for the people [..]
