Silent Stan Speaks...

So, Silent Stan has spoken - a little.  Maybe more technically a grunt, or a slight veral acknowledgment that we are living beings interested in renting 3601 Buttonwood, Suite E.  Here is what he (via a representative) said:  they need a HVAC (heating and air conditioning) company "out to the center to get a summation report on the current HVAC."  Once they have the summation report, they should have all the pieces they need to get us moving forward in our negotiations.  It is apparently the "home stretch" of getting the lease signed.

How dare you

WHAAAAAT?  I bet if you dig through all that stuff you are currently storing in our proposed space, Stan, you would probably find the alleged summation report.  And if there are three other businesses there in that center and they have heating and air conditioning, wouldn't it stand to reason that Suite E should easily have it as well?  And while we are on the subject...WE LIVE IN MISSOURI.  It could be 97 degrees at 8 am and 5 degrees by 3 pm ON THE SAME DAY.  Why wasn't heating and air just put in the place in the first the place????????  To shorten the time frame, here is the summation report:  WE NEED IT.  Thanks.

Plan B is now in effect.  Actually, it is Plan E.  As in E-for-Elks.  That's right...Christmas pie baking will be sponsored by the fine Elks and Columbia Benevolent Center on Elk Park Drive.

Here's the deal for holiday pie orders:

  1. You will order AND pay online - we've gone high-tech!  Your receipt is your order confirmation.
  2. You may order gift certificates online as well - we will mail those out as soon as you order.  We will be open by mid-January at the latest if it simply kills us getting there.
  3. We are offering pie pickup on Monday, December 23rd AND on Tuesday, December 24th - Christmas Eve- 9 am to 1 pm.  When you choose your pie, you'll choose the day (for example, you'll put an apple pie for Monday OR an apple pie for Tuesday in your cart).  If you have some seriously crazy holiday plans that won't work into this plan, but you REALLY need pies, email me at and we will work it out.
