So we continue to watch and wait.  Dad continues to fail, but still astounds us with his intelligence, wit, and strength.  He asks about Speakerhardware every morning, "Did you get some orders last night?", hows business, and so forth.  He has been intimately involved in the success of my business.  Provided me shop space for 3 years behind his house. He's my parts counter.  I'd give him a couple of thousand screws to count into packs of 10, 20 or whatever.   He'd have them done in a couple of hours. I told him "Dad, stretch it a bit!"  I buy gasket material in rolls, he devised a crank machine to cut it in 10ft lengths for me.  I buy hookup wire in 500ft rolls, he devised another to cut it in 5ft lengths.  You just can't keep an old hardware store owner busy enough. 

After this is all over, I will be back on my blog actively.  BigE announcements for my end of the new launch will appear here first.  Measurements, stats, all will be here before anywhere else.  It will be exciting, and I welcome your suggestions and comments.
