I will try to get here more often but if you want to see what else we have been up to. Look up Shemp's Cafe in Cairo W.V. on google, youtube or facebook, thanks !

I'm In !

I was voted in by my fellow fire fighters last week ! I am now the greenhorn in the Cairo VFD and proud of it. The guys that are involved are some of the nicest guys i've met. I can't wait to serve our town and be a help to protect our community !

New baby !

Our latest addition to the farm was born on 4/4/14. He's a bull calf and healthy as a horse. Good thing i was home yesterday to take care of business, then back to the restaurant. His name is Stewart after Tony Stewart, born on 4/4/14 and our fourth cow, just made sense !

Firefighter for a day !

So i'm at the restaurant taking out the trash to my truck. I hear a siren , then a yell for help. I ran down the street and one of our fire trucks pulled up. Our fire chief said he needed help because no other volunteers were there.So i jumped in the truck and Jerry Perdue climbed in to.He drove about 2 miles up to a pickup truck on fire down the road. Under the chiefs supervision we got the hose out and i got to put the fire out.Then we went back to the station , Jerry got to blow the horn. These were things we always wanted to do since we were kids. Then we refilled the trucks at the fire hydrant. What a great day , it's great i got to help!

Our tribute is complete !

I have been working on the frame and lightbox for Jim. He gave us the glass from a pinball machine. He use to make these at a place he worked & thought it would look good in our restaurant.So i decide since he plays for us so often , i would dedicate it to him.With help from Jerry , our lettering & lighting guy its all complete. It now hangs in Shemp's for all to see !
