Cheers to the wonderful pharmacist Dean at Pharmasave for going above and beyond for me last week. Much appreciated!

Cheers to John for the patient lesson on our woodstove, chopping us kindling, waiting to show us how the “draft” works, all while he should have been at home having dinner with his family. Get some rest, John, you look beat.

Cheers to Kimberly Rae Sanderson for being so patient and helpful with my multiple visits for my last minute “crafty project” on Friday! You are amazing and totally saved my day. And Cheers to Arlo for being the sweetest little shop “greeter”!
