You need to move to Denver, Co., or find away to teleport some of your amazing food to me. I'll pay for the ingredients. Just make a little extra when making it for yourself.

You do us all proud. I don't know about the lobster part, but you rock.

I'll hopefully have more time..the store front we are looking at is only a few blocks from my home..I plan to walk there and back every day..One reason we got out of our last venture was because it was too taxing on us..this should free up a few hours a week and hopefully a lot less stress

Sounds like a positive change for you That's a great thing considering how tough the past year has been.

We were fortunate..we closed at the start of the pandemic for a month, which was our choice...after we reopened we had our busiest year to date...but, we had already decided we didn't want to stay and didn't renew our lease which was up at the end of Feburary...this new place will be different..
