    Most times we start to shut down around 2 pm..
    Unless we are doing business, then we stay opened a little longer.
    Sorry I can't really give a close time .
    It's just never the same on any day...

    If there is no action for an hour .. It's time to close..

    We are always opened by 9:30 am ... That's pretty normal .. :D
    Farmers have been up since 4 am .. They are looking for a snack at 10 am :lol2

    Your cooking schedule and my riding schedule never seem to coincide. Was by there last Sunday for what may be the last pass over 16 for me this year. It's about to get super busy at work (yay standardized testing! :bluduh). By the time that's done there will be salt on the roads; snow looking more likely for the weekend.

    Glad you're kicking the crud you've had. I'll probably catch you in the spring!

    It's been a real hit/miss this month..

    The weather will break again...It always does..

    Monday I went to another DR. Put me on a broader spectrum antibiotic for 10 more days ..
    Ears are still messed up... After 30days I'm so sick of this..
    But we shall see.. Yeah I just need to get out...
