Monkey Wrenches ...

We put up the last pieces of drywall on the kitchen ceiling today. I know, I make it sound like that is a big accomplishment, but we like to recognize progress, even the little ones, that keeps us moving forward.

And we need these little pats on the shoulder for days like today, when we have setbacks. Lou, our trusty engineer, stopped by today to look at our septic system. To make it short, it is not adequate for the number of seats we envision our restaurant to have.

He's going to think about how to layout the leech field, septic tank, and well, so that we can open a restaurant with a capacity that makes financial sense. That's what's great about Lou, he tries to make things work for us.

But as you may sense, that is another expense, which we would have wanted to avoid, at least in the short term. But we'll know better once Lou gets back to us with our options.
