Marty and Ryan hamming it up

It may not be the HAPPIEST of HOLIDAY sentiments but in reality, most of us are thinking this on some level even before the first serving of turkey and dressing has hit our plate.  It’s really what holidays are all about – remembering that’s why big family gatherings only happen once a year.

Unless you live or work in a small town like us.

We’ve stopped traffic more than once on upper street this year.  We have an upper street and a lower street.  Technically there is an upper-upper street, but that is absolutely all the streets that run parallel.  It’s all that would fit in the valley next to the river and the railroad tracks.  So, when things are this small – everybody knows what’s going on.  Traffic was lined up all the way to the second red light (there are only two) and horns were tooting as we staged yet another photo shoot on upper street – and this one was a doozy.

We must have the best staff in the world or maybe we are all just flawed enough to get the inside joke – just like a family.  If you think this photo is tactless, some of the ideas that were tossed around were a thousand times worse.  “Wait for next year” preceded a low unanimous chuckle of agreement.

    Merry Christmas Ya’ll from Jason and the Footsloggers Fam

  2. Thanks Stephanie,

    They are Briards -French herding dogs. I try to get them to help me get the geese in on the nights they want to be contrary. Briards are theoretically supposed to herd geese. Both of them look at me like I must be kidding when the geese turn and hiss at them.

    Happy Holidays!!

  3. Chris,
    Sounds about like our lab that loves to carry dead ducks around in his mouth, but if they aren’t dead when he goes to retrieve, he runs away from them because they flap their wings…so much for herding and retrieving dogs huh? Sounds like they are well loved though and at the end of the day, that’s what matters most!
    Bless you all and have a very Merry Christmas!
    P.S. I love your products! And let me add that Ryan is a great salesman who is very knowledgeable about the product. Felt very confident in dealing with him.
