7/30/15 I will be out of the shop until Monday, August 3. Taking some time off to spend a long weekend with my wife and daughter at the family lakehouse to celebrate our anniversary!   All orders for in stock items such as Cactus Juice and dyes should ship as normal on Friday. Gaige, my nephew and Shipping Manager, will be here filling orders and shipping while I am away. I will NOT be checking e-mail until after I return and will NOT be answering the phone.
