Brettuns Village Trunks & Leather

Old Trunks, New Leather.  All from Maine.

February 24, 2009

What you’ve got
on your screen right here is just a simple reminder that our Deal of The
Week expires on Wednesday morning at exactly the

time I get to the office
after getting up in the dark, yawning a few times, checking to see if the
newspaper arrived yet or if the delivery

guy needs help pushing his
truck out of the snowbank again, let That Dog out, let That Cat out, let
That Cat right back in again because

it’s not summer yet, make
some coffee, put together a PB&J for the morning snack, look for some
leftovers in the fridge to take along for

lunch, then get dressed
in a minimum of four layers, lace up the snow boots, let That Dog in, make
my way to the truck, close my eyes and

hit the ignition one more
time while thinking in my head ‘eight years and you’ve never let me down
so don’t break the streak,’ back out into

traffic (one day last year
I had to wait for three cars – time to move further back in the woods I
guess), head down the hill, across the

river, and into Lewiston,
then along the River Road, downstream until I reach the office, then park
and drag the lunch pail along into the

building, hit the lights,
hit the thermostat to try to get her up to 58 degrees at least, hit the
power button on the WSC (Wicked Slow

Computer),and that, ladies
and gentlemen, is what we call the starter’s pistol.  Download 400
or so e-mails from overnight, delete

the ones that offer to extend
the length of our mortgage or refinance the prescription medications we
so desperately need, along with the

notifications of yet another
bunch of lotteries I’ve won even though I can’t remember entering them,
then answer the legitimate questions

about how much Uncle Larry’s
trunk is worth and what’s the best leather to use to attach a pit bull
to your wrist, and then, right in

there somewhere, I’ll update
the Deal of the Week.  For now, it expires in about 15 hours so if
you need some Yeller Lizard side

leather you’d best go git
it.  Pronto. Hit the Site Map at BrettunsVillage.Com.

I swear some day I’ll type
a brief newsletter. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…
