Big shipment of new items arrived late this afternoon. Will be sharing them with you over the next several days . . . Moments after I posted yesterday's diary entry we were visited by three pleasant Asian men just before closing. They were from Singapore and in town for military training at Ft. Indiantown Gap. And, yes, they had found the place on TripAdvisor. They were on their way back to Dallas today for additional activities with some purchases under their arms . . . My longtime friend Russ Harr surprised me this afternoon with an official program from the Oscar ceremonies. Russ got interested in the picture business as a young man when he was an extra in the film Witness. Eventually he made the trek to Hollywood and I want to tell you about his career there when space permits. For the last ten years he has served as an "escort" at the Oscars, tending to the stars backstage as they come and go from the podium. Russ is now back in the city as co-owner of Bar 704 but giving up the glamorous life on the West Coast hasn't been easy . . . The apple bowl is eight and one half inches across and safe for the microwave and dishwasher. It sells for $11 . . .
