Oh my God !

We have created a monster ! This is our third weekend and "Shemp's is a big hit. We ran a meatloaf dinner as a special and everyone seemed to be happy. My great friend Jerry that runs the radio station in town also has a awesome talent in art. He has made us our menus,coffee mugs, lettering on our front window and very creative signs. We are very lucky to have him as a friend , thanks for all you do for us Jerry ! I got some pics today , sorry it couldn't be sooner but i'm on a great ride and don't want to get off ! Katie couldn't be happier living her dream and she's doing an unbelievable job at it.

We bought a big screen tv for the restaurant yesterday. Our good friend Jerry , who runs our local radio station 104.3 in Cairo, turned us on to "Roku". Check it out it's really cool. So we can play 3 stooges clips and movies , games. We are also offering our customers free wifi and an awesome Philly cheesesteak! I don't know if i ever mentioned , Katie & I are both from Philly and we know the cheesesteak !LOL ! Next post i promise pictures. Tomorrow is the engine show in Cairo where Shemp's is an we expect a big turnout. If anyone that visits my blog needs a nice relaxing vacation , check out Cairo W.V. and the North Bend State Park in W.V. on the internet.
