I know some of you are waiting for the shop announcement which I promised would be mid-April. It's about that time, isn't it? Yes, it is. I've been silently working on camera straps, getting them ready to sell. But I hate to tell you, I can't give you a date, yet. Production is right on schedule and all the other little bits are falling into place. That's not the problem. No, my problem is much bigger and beyond my control: Federal Jury Duty.
I've been on call for jury duty since the beginning of March and thought I was going to escape an actual summons. Until this past Friday when the letter came in the mail, that is. So it looks like next week, I'll be at the courthouse instead of here, at home, opening my little shop. I am not comfortable throwing the proverbial doors wide open and not being around my computer to handle any unforeseen problems. Additionally, the time I do have at home will be limited and I know my attention will be needed elsewhere. Something has got to give and this time it's the shop. Sorry.
I will let you know an actual date just as soon as I can. There is a slight chance I won't have to go in at all next week, but I am not counting on it. Regardless, I will give you two or three days notice before I put anything up for sale. Sound good?
