Celebrating 22 Years

Today is my company's 22nd. birthday. It was on this day back in 1986 that we did our first event for actual dollars!

To celebrate, my friends Mark and Jennifer and I went to Zoolights tonight. It was chilly at -27C., but a pause for hot chocolate and periodically at the various fire pits, we kept relatively warm.

With a quick pause by home for a shower and a change of clothes, I'm off to my friend Rick's Eggnog Open House.
Rick and I have been friends since 1986 as well, so it's a wonderful day full of celebrations! I was by this afternoon to drop off some light for the garage mirror ball to find everything in order by 5:30 - a record in the history of the Eggnog Open House.

Here Rick sets up a shot of the two ladies largely responsible for bringing the house to order for the event.

Rick has this pump organ on display in his dining room... and it works!

Gotta run - more about Eggnog and such soon!

Congrats on 22 years! Wow - that is way too cold for me! I would need my bright yellow down jacket which I wore last in Switzerland. The hot chocolate sounds wonderful! Great pics.

Merry Happy to ya. And, congrats on the business longevity. My mother is celebrating a similar streak of successful in-business-ness, and she has done it with very little advertising beyond word-of-mouth and (gasp!), no web presence. But, what she offers is customer service that is legendary, in every way. From what I know of you, I get a feeling that your success may have that same characteristic.
