GIZMO'S GOSSIP

 
DON'T FENCE ME IN!
Hi everyone - Gizmo here

Mom and Dad are scardie cats. They worry when I walk with guests 
( mud,  porcupines etc),  they worry when I go to the road ( I stand 
in front of oncoming cars because I know they're coming to see me) 
and they worry that I'll disappear like Isham did. OK.  They're 
parents and that's what parents do.  But I'm not a kid any more and I 
can take care of myself.  SO FORGET THIS INVISIBLE FENCE THING !!!  I don't like it,  I don't want it.  And I'll never go outside again  if they persist (a grownup word).  They've already seen how I react so let's forget it ever happened.

Anyhow,  I want to remind you that you don't need to schlep out on a 
cold night to get something to eat.  Mom makes a terrific homemade 
pizza for guests,  plus a pasta dinner with a choice of sauce,  
rolls,  salad and home made maple ice cream for desert.  Or,  if 
you're like me you can pass pizza/pasta,  do not collect calories,  and go directly to ice cream.

LOVE....Gizmo

A TIME FOR CHANGE

Hi,
After four and a half years of smiles,  devoted loyalty and complete reliability,  our manager Brenda has decided to take on another 
challenge.  Her family has acquired a general store in Jeffersonville on condition that Brenda be their manager.  They could not have made a better choice,  though their gain is certainly our loss.  

We can not say enough (and our guest comment books confirm this) about how much we appreciate all she has done over these years.  Not only has 
she survived every challenge we threw in her direction,  she created 
many tasks of her own,  finding a way to complete those successfully 
as well. 

As a final task she has trained her own successor,  Cheri 
Audet who began full time this week.  Cheri's daughter Jeanine worked 
here for several years during high school so we knew the kind of work 
ethic to expect.  We realize that
Cheri has large footsteps to follow 
and look forward to many years together.  We know that those of you 
who have met Brenda will join us in offering many thanks and best 
wishes for her new venture.
