    I hope it works out good for you in the Spring. I'm looking forward to seeing how my advertising is going to work this year as well. Yellow pages, store benches, flyers, newspaper,door hangers as well as lettering for trucks, company shirts and so on.

    People were probably calling because it was 65 degrees outside and they thought it was spring. Its January!! Crazy weather . Good luck this year its going to be a battle with this economy.
