Hanging the Sign on the Old Barn Shop

Four days before the BIG Grand Opening of the Rusted Roots barn shop and it's official... the sign is on the barn!! Woot woot! And believe me when I say it was no small feat. Just wait for the punchline at the end of the story... So first things first, Bill is NOT a fan of heights. Perhaps it's because he is already 6'4" above the ground! Ha ha!

And I absolutely despise spending money when I don't need to. Why pay someone to do something if I can do it myself, right?? Aaaaaaaand I may be a little, what's the word, I want things done a certain way and sometimes it's easier to just do it myself. That's one reason why we haven't hired any permanant staff.
