desiging the sign for the business in Photoshop

After several attempts to get a sign specification for the new sign, I broke out Photoshop and created my own. No bones in this sign. I thought a paw print would be ok but Krissy gave the no motion.

SCRAPS dog bakery neon sign proposal, we actually bought this and it looks great.  $3500 later.

Today is the big move of the dog store. 
We filled and emptied this bad boy three times.

The cleaning of the old store is going very slow.

Code Yellow at Spanish Springs open house

We were going to Spanish Springs High School for open house tonight but once we got there they would not let us in but rather they told us to go home.  Those already inside could stay but no one was to come or leave.  It turns out that there were target shooters on the hill behind the school.

My new TV has a blown pixel

My new TV that IGT gave me for my anniversary has gotten a blown pixel.  Sony says that this is a feature and not a failure.  They sent a repair man but he pointed me to their user manual which says just that.  He said that for $2200 he could replace the pannel that is only 1 month old.  Sony, BOOO!

"Try Eryn Tri" Sprint Triathlon takes place at Sparks Marina on 9/11/2011

I took photos at the "Try Eryn Tri" Sprint Triathlon today. 
I was able to take several hundred photos for this great cause.  Jim Shaw's memory chip failed but he was able to recover all.  I saw a lot of great people and friends.  When I get my photos back I will post some of the artsy ones.

Maddy can't wait for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

We went to game stop to see if there are any new games that sound good and she saw this standing poster and went crazy (she loves this game)... only a month or so until it's released.  I told her to start saving those dollars from the dog store.

no wine in the wine fridge

It is a sad day at the Taylor house.  Well, I did it to myself, several years ago I told myself that I would not buy any more wine until I drank all the wonderful Napa wine I had collected over the years.  I actually lied as you all know I have purchased many bottles but in the end the fridge is empty.  I thought I would show you a photo of an empty fridge but that would be boring.

the stunted corn starts tasseling at 2ft

This year was a bust for the corn and tomatoes.  The corn only got 2 feet tall and the tomatoes were eaten to the nub by the Jack Rabbits.  No veggies this year. BOO!

Carson City coin show with my bud Crispy

Crispy and I went to the Carson City Nevada coin show at the old mint building.  I've been looking for a new collection since I can hardly find any China currency any more.  I know, I know there is always EBAY.  I like to look and touch with my hands before I buy.  I found a new hobby from a vendor that is in South Shore Tahoe.  He had a large selection of Trade Tokens and I think that this maybe something I would like to look into this.

my morning walk takes me along this path

Wingfield Springs has a lot of walking paths and finding
them and navigating them is a great way to get out
and get some fresh air.
