  1. Thanks so much for having me Lori!!!! I enjoyed meeting you and Peter and loved every minute I was there! My husband even had a good time and he is hard to please! LOL Can't wait to come back next year! I finished up my blog post and posted a link to yours so they could see more pictures! Wish I wasn't 4 hours away because I really did want to spend more time in your shop! Jeff was not comfortable waiting on customers so I only had a few minutes to sneak in! I'm kicking myself for not coming back in after the truck was packed up!!!! Have a great day! ~Teresa~
