Here's the most recent Tool Shed News, sent to our regular customers almost every week. You get a sampling of part of the inventory that's in stock, there are jokes (PG rated, sort of), weekly specials, and anything else I decide to throw in. If you want to subscribe (for free), please note two things: One, it's for New England residents only, and two, I don't sell your name, so you won't be getting any more spam than what you get already. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to subscribe and you live in New England.
In either case, everything is always first come, first served, we do not take "holds" via phone or email, and we don't ship or mail anything. Also, at least half the stuff that comes in gets sold long before it hits the newsletter, so don't use this as your only motivation to come into the store. The people who find the most of what they are looking for are the people who come in regularly. And check the date of the posting, as I'm not always as on top of it as I might be.

Humor Dept: NEED JOKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lettuce, Whores and Hockey Players
A man in a Florida supermarket tried to buy half a head of lettuce.
The very young produce assistant told him that they sell only whole
heads of lettuce.
The man persisted and asked to see the manager.? The boy said he'd ask
his manager about it.? Walking into the back room, the boy said to his
manager, 'Some asshole wants to buy half a head of lettuce.'
As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right
behind him, so he added, 'And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy
the other half.'? The manager approved the deal, and the man went on
Later the manager said to the boy, 'I was impressed with the way you
got yourself out of that situation earlier.? We like people who think
on their feet here.? Where are you from, son?'? Canada, sir,' the boy
'Well, why did you leave Canada ?' the manager asked.? The boy said,
'Sir, there's nothing but whores and hockey players up there.'
Really?' said the manager.? 'My wife is from Canada .'
No shit?' replied the boy.? 'Who'd she play for?
Non-humor Department: Note to all subscribers: all items are being offered on a first come, first served basis, no item will be held on an email or phone call. If you have a question, please call the store during my normal business hours, as it sometimes takes several days to respond to emails. Also, these mailings can only describe a small number of the items I have in stock, and often things come and go much too quickly to get into the mailing. The way to get the things you want and need, therefore, is to stop by frequently, without waiting to be notified in advance, since the mailing can be helpful to you only to a point.
