Cal Ripkin with Robert and Joanie Ballard, photo by Lynda Carter
Lynda Carter and Kelly Ripkin (Cal's wife) have been wonderful customers for several years but this is the first time I had the courage to ask for a photo. Lynda is very sweet and funny and always has appreciative words, and she also offered to take the photos with Cal.

Lynda took one photo of us with Cal, and then Cal requested she take a second picture in front of our shop door so that the inside of the shop would be in the picture. That really made Robert and I smile, as you can see.

Lynda said "This would be perfect for your holiday Christmas card!" We were definitely star-struck and it made for a very festive feeling in the air with the shop just recently decorated for the Christmas season.
