Last weekend, Smelliot and I took a trip down to Lawrence, Kansas to visit Kansas University. The out-of-state tuition is the ONLY concerning item within my control. The rest will be up to Smelly. It is clear she will enjoy her post secondary experience, but she will definitely need to stay focused on the purpose of attending College, to get reasonably good grades, establish an area (or two) of expertise, and begin laying the groundwork for her entree into the workforce upon graduation. These seem like easy goals, coming from a 50 year old coot like me, but I recall the overpowering lure of student activities and social distractions. We'll see.

Sidetrack the Top Dog, continues to forge ahead with expansion plans for Woofables. Our considerations include the prospects of opening a couple of small, "satellite" retail outlets, a larger manufacturing facility, and adding one - three full-time employees in the next 18 months or so. Controlled growth is a good problem to have, but staying focused on smart growth is difficult with the continued distraction of other business opportunities that spin off from our current efforts.
The puppy and hound don't seem to mind running to and from meetings and the shop. They give a whole new meaning to backseat drivers, huh?
Well, that's about it from these cheap seats. And so it goes....
