Wow! A lot has been happening since my last post. First, part-time job #3 ended for me (on good terms, mind you). The owners of the company are nearing retirement and so are passing the torch to the next generation. There will be a period of reorganization before a new company is formed so the time was right for me to move on.
Next, our #2 kid is off to college. If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I have a sudden interest in the Gamecocks. For the near future, you'll find my sports allegiances shared among the Reds, Bengals, Bearcats, and Gamecocks. By the way, Mr. Daisy Mae has the only wife in town who prefers ESPN to HGTV.
Finally, opportunity has knocked for Daisy Mae's Market. The space adjoining our current location on the Race Street end of the markethouse at Findlay Market has come available. We've decided to "double our pleasure and double our fun." We'll maintain our current space on the right side as you exit the markethouse, and we'll also operate the fresh produce stand on your left as you come out the door. We installed additional tables today and will start to fill out the new space in the next few days. We hope to be fully stocked and staffed by the weekend. (And you'll see a lot more of me around the market!)
Things may be a little different during this time of transition; however, not everything will change. We'll still be the only full-time, year-round fresh produce merchant at Findlay Market, and we'll continue to be passionate about serving you, our loyal customers.
If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies. -Anonymous
