I had a couple of nutty things happen---good stories to chat about----I was standing by my soap cutting bench and I was cutting several bars for my AUNT, when this woman comes into my booth and marches right over to us and says---oh---you don't want to buy that soap---there is this woman down the block from here that is selling it for 4.50 a bar----(I sell mine for 6$)----I really believe she just thought we were customers in my booth, cutting soap-----my Aunt---bless her dear sweet heart---grabs ahold of my arm----my swingin arm LOL and smiles at me in a most loving manner--and ONLY because she knows the way that I am and totally can be----I am thinkin---honey dear---I am gonna RIP you WIDE open---but instead-----I simply replied to the silly woman---oh---oh really?---sooooooo how many ounces is that bar----she looks at the tag and says 3.75----and I say--and you paid $4.50 for it???---You poor dear---you got ripped OFF!!!!!-----and in my head I said----and we are DONE! and walked away-----God truly was smiliing down on her that day---heeheeheee----To my sister Mary and my niece Amb--thank you for coming and helping us----You filled the weekend with good humor---and I love you dearly!'s Grand Opening was yesterday---missed the cake, but LOVE everyones items---very very nice job peeps----I took a peek this mornin----
