Tell us a random fact people would be surprised to know about you: I love to needlepoint.

Tell us a funny moment at 308 Wonderful King Street that still makes you laugh out loud: While there have been more funny moments than I can recall, one moment involved my predecessor. I have had 2 employment times at CJB and during the first stint, I was the inventory person. On more than one occasion, Mrs. Ramsay would pull the bookkeeper into the tiny bathroom.  And it was tiny for even the skinniest people to turn around in. But both of them would squeeze in periodically. This was where they had private financial meetings. But these high finance meetings certainly set us up for future success.
