It’s been a rough year.
February was supposed to mark the triumphant return of the blog…that didn’t happen.
Justin and Whitney left.
June and July saw temperatures of 1,000 degrees like every day.
A massive storm brought down like a million trees, damaging homes, closing roads and leaving us without power and hot water.
And now, it’s August. It’s time for some relaxation. In fact let’s all head to the beach, sink our toes into the golden sand and dive into the cool crisp water…
…Wait! WAIT!! What is that?!
Everybody! Out of the Water!! OUT OF THE WATER!
That’s right ladies and gents, it’s Shark Week!
A week of non-stop, high flying, face biting, air jumping, seal hunting…Sharks!
Why not get yourself a shark tank…which is the hip new way to say Frameless Shower. Yeah, yeah, just call up and say: “Yo! Gimme a shark tank!” If we “act” confused just play along. Oh and mirrors are now shark skins…okay that doesn’t work at all. And just so we’re clear, you can’t put sharks in the frameless shower and frameless showers aren’t aquariums, so if you try to fill it with water…BAM!! Instant flood.
Trust me on this one and why wouldn’t you trust me… Y’all know me. Know how I earn a livin’. I’ll catch this bird for you, but it ain’t gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin’ bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow you whole. Little shakin’, little tenderizin’, an’ down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that’ll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin’ basis. But it’s not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I’ll find him for three, but I’ll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you’ve gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don’t want no volunteers, I don’t want no mates, there’s just too many captains on this island. $10,000 for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the wholly moley…We are out of time folks.

It has attracted many men.
Initially, with the promise of land, freedom and gold.
The promise now is similar, but we call it fortune and fame.
Still many have headed west in search of something more. Some find it, and some find that they already had it all along.
Well, this year the temptress that is California claims one of our very own. One Mr. Justin Stanfield. That’s right, the kid with the so-so face and the hot wife is headed to tinsel town.
Over the years Justin has not just proven his value to River Glass Designs, the company, but even more so to River Glass Designs, the family. We all love him and will miss him more than he knows. We anxiously await his return…In fact I’ve been dreaming about it… I can see it as clear as day…
…We’re racing thru opposite ends of the forest, until we both come to a clearing. Our eyes meet from across the meadow and we begin racing toward each other. The distance is small but, it seemingly takes a lifetime to close the gap between us. Our hands finally touch and we dance in circles, knowing true happiness in that instance. Then I immediately begin to have a massive asthma attack, since I have no business running and dancing in a field filled with flowers. And as the pollen begins to fill my lungs, I take my last breath…
But wait! A small glowing finger touches me and once again I began to breath. Completely reinvigorated, I high five the little brown alien who has just saved my life. Then he tells me to phone home…and I say to him: “I will phone home my friend…I will phone home…
Justin and Whitney We All Love You And Wish You The Best – Don’t Forget About Us.

It was no simple bathroom. The Duchess of Latveria spent years picking out every detail. The last thing she would focus her intricate attention on, was the shower. Her vision was as clear as a summer sky, reality was not. Glass had never been cut, formed, molded or even thought of , in the ways her mind did. It would be a daunting task. After the failures of some of the most sought after craftsmen, hope seemed to fade. Until he showed up. His name: Norrin Radd. Over the next few months he would hand craft the Duchess vision and create the gateway to the modern frameless shower…
Not even close! In fact about 75% of that story is lies and by 75% I mean 100% of that story is lies.
So I don’t know who invented the Frameless Shower, so what!
Am I suppose to know that since I’m in the Frameless Shower business.
Your Company is named River Glass Designs…Glass is right there in the name, you should know these things.
Well for your information I did a ton of research to try and find out who invented the Frameless Shower and I couldn’t find diddly squat on Wikipedia.
Besides do all of you computer people know who invented the computer…
…well that was an easy one, everyone knows it was Best Buy.
Oh yeah…I forgot,
Well I bet none of you know who invented …uh…uh…Karate!
Um, One Mister Steven Seagal! BAM!

Today was to be a very special blog that led off with a Redskins victory and was followed by a very special look at two River Glass Designs couples.
The Redskins obviously had other ideas. To be honest though, I commend them for falling to 2-1, 3-0 sounds so pretentious! But there were two things that offered a silver lining last night. 1) After weeks of deciding what type of Quarterback to be, Rex Grossman has, simply, decided to be himself. And isn’t that what we want from everyone, for them to just be themselves…2) and this is the important one, both teams were able to bring national attention to the FGA – Field Goal Awareness. In fact I hear the organization is working on taglines right now. Some front runners are Field Goals: They’re points Too! And my personal favorite: Field Goals, Not Just Because You Have To, But Because You Want To!
But enough about that let’s get to the really good stuff. We want to give a, very special, congratulations to two couples who celebrated their anniversaries.
Frist, Gary (our owner) and Diane (his boss) celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary on Sunday. 35 YEARS! Their marriage is older than most of our employees! Now if you’re wondering what these two are like – Diane is a sweet, soft spoken kind hearted women and Gary is a fun loving, fair and honest man. And if you’re thinking the only reason I’m saying those nice things, is because they sign my checks, then you would be wrong! But it is the main reason…
The other special couple is Megan (my girlfriend) and Jamie (it’s a soft J) who celebrated their anniversary on Monday. Megan is Gary and Diane’s daughter. Now I know what you’re thinking how could Megan marry Hi’may when she clearly loves me. Well we both decided it would be for the best that she marries Jamella, since she and I work together and will still see each other every day. But in all seriousness, they have been married for the last 7 years and two beautiful children. And soon Megan will return to work, here I the office, once again completing our work family.
So Happy Anniversary Megan and Jaymee…keep on um…keep on truckin!
And Happy Anniversary Gary and Diane…keep the paychecks comin!

There are times in history when evil overshadows good. Times when blind hate is put on display for all to see. September 11, 2001 was not one of those times. It was a time of true heroism. It was a time when love for our fellowman outweighed fear of the unknown.
So where were you? Not when planes were turned into weapons. Not when hate was brought to our doorstep.
Where were you when hundreds of firefighters raced to certain death to save countless lives. Where were you when ordinary people became beyond extraordinary? Where were you when unselfish love triumphed over unspeakable hate? Where were you when unimaginable tragedy gave birth to unparalleled heroism.
Where were you?
