HeliOS announced that we had physically moved into our new home. Although we do have a new facility, there is a ton of stuff to do before we can resume operations.
Now, keep in mind that the things we have to do involves carpentry and sheet rock skills....and that in turn involves the operation of power tools.
I believe we're up to 13 states and Tonga that prohibits me from touching them. Some of them have filed a restraining order that keeps me at least 200 yards away.
You ever handle sheet rock?
It will find any occasion to break, chip, crack or cause another reason to make you go back and buy another sheet. As a combat engineer in the US Army, my job was to handle explosives and blow stuff up..
I'd rather handle explosives.
Quick hint...that would not be me.
So take a peek at some of the shots we took during the building process so far. With any luck, we'll be finished by mid-May.
The Grand Opening is on the 4th of June, at 307 Ferguson Street, Taylor Texas. There will be food and drink as well as raffles for three computers and a 50 dollar gift card donated by Diane Franklin. I envy the person who wins this as it's for an extremely nice eatery in North Austin. We'll see you there.
