Let’s make it simple.

Let’s make it simple.

There has been a lot on our shoulders and our mind. If you are like me, the word of December 2020 is: FATIGUED.  

It may not be the holiday you want, with a house filled with friends and family - parties, dancing, catered events. But that’s ok.  

Let’s take this as an opportunity. In some ways, this is the excuse we rarely allow ourselves to take.

Let’s rest.

Buy a bottle of the good sh*t and sip it slowly.

Play cards late at night with your significant other and laugh.

Make a snowman with your kids.

Just rest. 

I think I speak for many small business owners when I say, I cannot thank you enough. In the midst of all this, you have still shown up and supported us ‘little guys’. If you’ve purchased something local, you are helping someone else sleep a little better tonight. Damn, how much I appreciate you all.

We have things to figure out in 2021, things to look forward to, and goals to accomplish.

But for now, I want you to just be a simple man – if even for a few hours.


I can’t wait to see you next year.

It’s simple.

Fall is here.

And like most Septembers in Nebraska, this month is acting all crazy-like. Locals will nod and smile when I share that last Tuesday, at our son’s football game it was 103 degrees. The very next day, we wore sweatshirts and had blankets for the 64-degree football game.

A whopping 40 degree shift in 24 hours. Welcome to Nebraska – it isn’t for everyone.  #iykyk

Grab your brats - Tailgating season is here!
Grab your brats - Tailgating season is here!

August 18, 2022

Did you know National Tailgating Day is coming up? It is September 3rd this year. I didn’t know either. But I like it.

I most often associated tailgating with football. And my very unsophisticated research tells me some theorize it started in the late 1800s (without actual tail-gates, of course) at intercollegiate games, and other theories claim it became popular in American culture due to the Green Bay Packers.
