Great news! The linen shipped and should arrive on Monday! This will facilitate our getting our online order backlog down considerably next week. I want to thank our online customers who have sent kind notes of understanding regarding the shipping delays because of our inability to source linen from our supplier in the usual prompt manner. However, I want to say something else about this experience...

Who we vote for matters. This disruption to my business, to my customers, and certainly to my supplier, was brought to you by an administration that cared nothing about the real pain and agony it inflicted on government employees and contractors (including our Coast Guard families who are a major front line of coastal/border security, by the way) during last month's shut down, let alone the smaller inconveniences like ours. I honestly thought the shutdown wouldn't touch my business directly, but it did because our imported linen couldn't be processed at the incoming ports in an efficient manner during the shut down. (The fact that sourcing American-made textiles of this kind is impossible is a whole other issue.) The lesson here is that decisions made in Washington absolutely affect almost all of us, one way or another. If we are among the lucky few who seem unaffected directly, it is at least a core American value (I hope) that we care about impacts upon one another. When you go in to that voting booth in 2020, think about making the kindest, justest, most compassionate decisions you can make. I know it's not easy. Sometimes the choices given us are, well...not very good, but as I've been saying on this page for a while now: it's up to us.
