Hey there Wheel Heads! It is Friday yet again, and that means it's time for yet another eventful blog post straight to you from the Wheelie HQ.
After a glorious weekend that included some rodeo fun, we came back to the grind, and we've had a very interesting week to say the least. We've been very busy cleaning up the office, installing new trim, painting the conference room, raking the front yard, and running to the nearest business to use a bathroom as ours have been out of commission until today.
Now you may be asking yourself, "is this where the Smelly part comes in?" Well yes. Yes it is.
Cut to Tuesday when the three of us are getting ready to head to lunch and an epic smell started flowing through the office. By epic, I mean gnarly. The smell was horrific, and we immediately blamed Baby Eddy for the smell. So we left Eddy here and headed downtown to grab a sandwich. While we were gone, the smell got worse, and when we got back, we thought, "Man Eddy! What did you get into?"
But something about this smell told us that this was not a puppy smell, no, this was much worse.
Our building is ancient (i.e. built in 1910) so, yeah, think about it. The sewer lines from the building to the city sewer lines had backed up and started leaking into the basement under the building directly below our office space. We had a crew come in and take a look, and they told us that the bathrooms were out of commission until the issue was solved. So basically we had the option to use the yard or run to the public bathrooms across the viaduct. Lisa found a huge box from our brand new sign and set it up into a stall of sorts and jokingly told me I could use that. As soon as the rain started, the boxes tipped over, and I told her that that wasn't going to work for me. (We had a good laugh about that.)
Thanks to the guys at Ready Freddy, Montana Trenchless and Complete Restoration, we now have functioning bathrooms.
I've never autographed anything (well except my golf glove for my High School golf coach after the state tournament in 2004), and I guess all my art prints (but that is different), and it was super fun to sign a bottle for that crew.
Now what's happening with Lisa and Dan?!
