On July 14 (Saturday), it was the MQQNEYES OPEN HOUSE. I flew in a couple days before our open house to help get ready.
When I got to the shop, Dean, Jr. was already there. For some reason, Dean must sense when I’m going to arrive because he is never there otherwise. On this day, Thursday, in preparation for the Open House on Saturday, we did major machine shop cleaning.
Machine Shop Clean up. We just did a major cleaning but this time we pulled everything out of the building.
Then on Friday, it was time for some shopping. Up until now, we have been buying food supplies for the open house at Smart & Final (S&F). The reason mainly being because Ed “Big Daddy” Roth would always buy food for parties at S&F. He would love to find hamburger patties with the shortest remaining expiration date to get the best bargain. This year, we went to COSTCO. In Japan, they pronounce COSTCO with the “T” unlike in the US where most people pronounce it with a silent “T”.
Four of us went and used 5 shopping carts.
the remaining members.
Thank you everyone for stopping by and making this year’s MOONEYES OPEN HOUSE a wonderful day!
See you again soon!
