"Just doing a final check on some emails, while almost walking out the door for a quick vacation (store will still be ably run of course), and I got some news- one disturbing, the other almost as disturbing. Firstly, to Gary Brown, someone that gets picked on and teased mercilessly in this blog- not out of meanness, but out of my affection for him and Dot (how she puts up with him, I'll never understand)(do a quick search on Gary Brown, or any derivative of that name and see the onslaught of entries referencing him and you'll see what we mean). Over the weekend, his family were the victims of an unfortunate and devastating household mishap, that will affect them for months to come. We all sympathize".
Mr. Brown also happens to be a reasonably adequate blogger and is authoring one on his misfortune.
While it is obviously but a mere shadow of what Mikey achieves here, we do wish to encourage him to strive for something better.
For that reason we invite you to partake in Mr. Brown's musings here.
