  • Mike Moorlach in the news..3_m

    Our good friend Mike Moorlach of Mikes workshop. You know this guy almost all of us buy our Flying Dutchman blades from Mike.

    What you may not know, Mike has been busy since this past spring in his spare time cutting out Christmas ornaments to sell at a local flower and gift shop to raise money for his local food pantry. So far he has cut out 527 Yes, I said Five Hundred and twenty seven..

    Mike has contributed generously in the past to the food pantry and just in the past few days he has been recognized in the largest newspaper in South Dakota the Argus of Sioux Falls. Mike was very excited to have been written up and just had to call me and let me know. I did a quick internet search and here is a link to his article. He said he would send me a link but I have not gotten the e-mail yet.

      Good for Mike. A really nice man, and very deserving of the accolades. Unable to raise the article on the site listed.

                Great stuff Mike...It's an honor to know you...
                I started doing business with you because of your reputation, but I never realized just how much of a great guy you are....

                        Mike you are truly a great person. We are all good people at heart and can give back in so many ways but a great person does not talk about it. They just do it.

                              Knew Mike was good guy, but now I'm trying for figure out how he carries all that heart in his chest.
                              When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
                              Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                                Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                                I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                                These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
