It's been that kind of week.
Speaking of interesting, I lost one of my buyers last week. He retired on Friday and I am having to open up the search for a new buyer. I've had mixed feelings about this deal. The buyer has been with us for many years, but decided two weeks ago that he was going to retire. Got an e-mail from him late Friday evening that he was retiring with two weeks notice. Needless to say, it kinda took me by surprise. I fully appreciate someone who has worked long and hard towards retirement, but I would have appreciated a bit more a warning about this change.
Update on my dad. He finally got his surgery appointment scheduled for next month on the 21st. It is not considered urgent or critical so the date is more of a scheduling deal to fit everyone's schedules. My dad is not happy with the date (wants it sooner) but he is going take what he can get for now. I am not exactly thrilled with the prospect of him going under the knife at 91 next month but I am trying to keep a positive outlook.
And I have a mystery challenge. While driving along one of the main roads a few weeks ago, I spotted an interesting site. A bike along the side of the road. A very orange bike. From initial glance, it did not appear to be a factory paint job. It looks like an older bike painted day-glo orange and staged at a certain spot. I finally took time yesterday on the way up to the trailer and pulled over for a closer look. No real clue what it means - no sign or posting on it. I am thinking it was a memorial to a cyclist that might have been killed at that spot much like a roadside cross. I have tried to search the net for some meaning but have come up dry so far.
