Break-in











I am so disturbed! Theives, thugs, no-goods, etc. broke into our shoe store last night and wrecked havoc. We estimate that they got away with about $1100.00 shoes, boots, money. It could have been worse. But why did they think it necessary to throw all the drawers and files on the floor, break the cash register, and ruin the back door. Police said it took them a long time to get our steel door open. They also robbed and vandalized the Nail shop and Cleaners. I am hoping they catch them and they have to PAY. If anyone tries to sell you any Hi-Tech Magnum boots without a box or some in a box, or some Nike Shox.........please question them (if it's someone you don't know). The Nail Shop was a huge mess with nail stuff all over the floor, but I didn't see the Cleaners. For some reason, they passed by the liquor store, probably because of the alarms and cameras.

Happy Birthday Carli!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!






















Isn't it great to be "Sweet Sixteen". I should say wasn't it great. Carli has the big one today and she is quite a girl. I am posting some pictures of her, old and new, and you can see that she was and still is a pretty girl. Carli, have a great one and congratulations on being Varsity cheerleader. I love you.
