Today I had arranged to get my bookbinder mate Rob & another book collecting buddy Allan to come and look at my new used hot stamping machine, I needed his expertise to show me how to set it up, to figure out how to attach the text blocks onto it. As usual he turned up at the expected time, after a cup of tea its down to the real work, give it a quick clean check all the features are working yes, now we have to design some blocks to hold the fonts.
While this going on who walks in but my yachting friends B&G from Newcastle called in to say hi, they wanted some help with gear of the internet. More tea for everyone. Now all the computers are doing double time book searches, yacht supplies from the USA, check emails.
Then we get a surprise visit from a bookshop owner she runs a really neat shop at Toukley just coming to visit see our shop, gee its small I thought it would be bigger, but its good to see her anyway.
All the while I have to do shop work posting of books answer emails update different links on the web answer the phone. What else can happen today? I wonder.
