Old Trunks, New Leather.  All from Maine.


February 24, 2009

What you’ve got
on your screen right here is just a simple reminder that our Deal of The
Week expires on Wednesday morning at exactly the


time I get to the office
after getting up in the dark, yawning a few times, checking to see if the
newspaper arrived yet or if the delivery


guy needs help pushing his
truck out of the snowbank again, let That Dog out, let That Cat out, let
That Cat right back in again because


it’s not summer yet, make
some coffee, put together a PB&J for the morning snack, look for some
leftovers in the fridge to take along for


lunch, then get dressed
in a minimum of four layers, lace up the snow boots, let That Dog in, make
my way to the truck, close my eyes and


hit the ignition one more
time while thinking in my head ‘eight years and you’ve never let me down
so don’t break the streak,’ back out into


traffic (one day last year
I had to wait for three cars – time to move further back in the woods I
guess), head down the hill, across the


river, and into Lewiston,
then along the River Road, downstream until I reach the office, then park
and drag the lunch pail along into the


building, hit the lights,
hit the thermostat to try to get her up to 58 degrees at least, hit the
power button on the WSC (Wicked Slow


Computer),and that, ladies
and gentlemen, is what we call the starter’s pistol.  Download 400
or so e-mails from overnight, delete


the ones that offer to extend
the length of our mortgage or refinance the prescription medications we
so desperately need, along with the


notifications of yet another
bunch of lotteries I’ve won even though I can’t remember entering them,
then answer the legitimate questions


about how much Uncle Larry’s
trunk is worth and what’s the best leather to use to attach a pit bull
to your wrist, and then, right in


there somewhere, I’ll update
the Deal of the Week.  For now, it expires in about 15 hours so if
you need some Yeller Lizard side


leather you’d best go git
it.  Pronto. Hit the Site Map at BrettunsVillage.Com.

I swear some day I’ll type
a brief newsletter. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…
