The day has finally come! Tomorrow my son is donating his hair to a Charity called ” Children with Hairloss” After doing some research I found out that some of these charities receive hair donations but do not donate the wigs to the people who need them. It was important to my son that kids with financial problems were able to get the wigs without cost. The two charities we decided on were ” Children with Hairloss” and ” Wigs for Kids” . The choice became easy because one charity had a minimum of 8 inches with a ponytail and the other charity was 12 inches with a ponytail. 8 inches it is!!! Crap I just measured my own hair and its passed 10 inches so it looks like I will be donating as well!

Sometimes you just have to laugh at yourself. I have to sign some very important documents. It took me about 15 minutes to set up my fax machine. Now Rob our trademark lawyer called me and he also can’t figure out how to send the fax from his end. I have no idea what’s wrong!

Only a week ago I felt like we were on a roll. Things were really falling into place. Now this week I feel like things have slowed down. Jackson goes back to school next week so I am going to start going around to the bars. I need to feel busy . I got a call last week about one of the New Orleans girls quiting after 3 years of working for us. Chantel was upset over it but in my mind we have to face reality. This is a bartending job and most people move on to other things. Unless they have aspirations in management then you have to expect that they will get bored or just move on to greener pastures. I say Good Luck and hope you come in as a customer.
I got a speeding ticket on Saturday. I was so pissed. Jackson was in the car and afterwards I said that I was pissed off. He said ” mom can’t you just say P O’d instead of using such bad language?” Ok so I am PO’d

Slow day today. I went onto my lilspill emails and there were 35 pages for the last few days. 75% of that was junk mail. But I went far enough back to get a ” God is giving you a wake up call to raise your son to honor Jesus.” This email came after I wrote about my rafting trip with jackson and our near scarey experience. This woman went on in the email to tell me that it is our job as parents to make sure our kids believe in Jesus and prepare our children for the gift of Christ’s death on the cross. She then said that my rafting accident was God giving me a wake up call. I am sorry for her that the God she believes in would actually harm or scare someone into believing in him. That is not the God I know. So so nice of her to write me. She must be a godfearing woman just trying to help the heathen!
On another note. I have a new favorite show ” Hung” I am gaga over Thomas jane the lead character.
Slow day at work. Kevin is out in Denver because of the AC problems. I received a very complimentary email about Christhian and Nicole from Oklahoma.
I am going to post the radio conversation with our custom bike winner. Very funny

You know you are in the country when your apartment is inundated with crickets instead of roaches. I went to help Trey set up his new apartment and there were crickets all over the place. I grew up in an apartment until I was 12. Then promptly I moved back into an apartment at 17. I am used to roaches. Crickets do seem cleaner but they hop.
Trying to help figure out the liquor trends in Russia. I will probably go out there in September. I don’t know if the ” no pussy drinks” rule applies to a country that downs Vodka like water. One of the women involved in the Moscow license made me laugh so hard. Kevin was suggesting a lower level cigar / smoking area for some semi unusable space in the moscow parcel. Her response was ” there is no such thing as smoking rooms in Russia. People can smoke in the hospital after a heart attack.” LOL

Hot damn the bars are doing great!!! The only issue seems to be the AC in Denver and OKC. These are water cooling systems which present certain problems. I think the OKC landlord is chinzing on the AC for the whole area. ” It’s fucking 105 degrees freaking up the tonnage to the unit and stop shutting it off at night!” I have a feeling he is shutting the whole system down and its impossible to cool the place without proper AC.
One of our investors happens to run a financial service that includes many professional football players. I just got an email from him offering tickets to a few saints games. I love that. I will wash your back you wash mine!!!!

At the San Antonio bar 2 nights in a row. I am not as young as I used to be. The girls did a superhero versus supervillan dress up theme . Wow did they look hot! Cat woman was so sexy. There are a lot of new girls which brought in a positive vibe . One of the old girls pissed me off she came up to me and said ” lil it’s not as fun as it used to be with all these new girls .” I said it’s not our job in management to make sure you have a good time! Just go to work , make money, if you end up having fun well that ‘s a bonus. I want to thank marsha and Tommy . They have done a great job. For the first time , San Antonio is beating nashville’s numbers and a lot if that is due to their hard work and love for that bar. The new bathrooms are great too. Daniel said to me ” my only criteria now for the bathrooms is that if anyone tries to punch the walls that they leave with a broken hand! Haleluia (sp).
Exciting news yesterday we just signed to open a coyote in Moscow . So exciting
