Frank McNie's New Fish & Chip Shop
Cyber Chip Shop

Till now much of the "managing" (Dave might argue) of the restaurant building project has been done by e-mail and telephone with regular weekly visits. We closed our Bed and Breakfast at Niagara on the Lake this weekend and the fish and Chip restaurant has suddenly sprung into reality, no more "Cyber Chippy" This week as the temperature begins to ease off we got our A/C working our new exhaust system is operational but the hot air return is still AWOL. We have telephone lines but no jacks. We have new outer doors but no foyer door, we have toilets without partitions, a sign without words, job applications but no time or place to interview, all in all things seem to be progressing well. Now that we are seeing Dave's woodworking skills come to the fore he is beginning to strut around like a budgie. Heinz the Tiler/plasterer with the help of his 73 year old father is creating magic and has just about run out of blue jokes. Chris, Dave's young assistant has lost his shyness and has adopted a "Hey Dude" kind of attitude with me.

This shows the front of the restaurant with the new doors and
Dave our 27 year old builder who seems to have aged a bit.

Shows our new take out counter, a work in progress.

The new kitchen tiles, the ones on the back wall seem to say
something. I hope customers don't think what I did.

some wood detail

I really hope to afford dividers walls for the women's loo.

Sometimes aim becomes very important.

Just a note about the Saturday Sarnie, we've had lots of e-mails from around the world on the subject, I've noticed that the further you get from Scotland the more outrages the diet becomes. The Aussies seem to be in particularly bad shape but one misguided person in Vancouver even suggested it should include lettuce (shudder) There is a man in Greenock who should be locked up for criminal intent and another in Utah who seems to be fixated on steak pie. The search continues!

Frank and June

P.S. Alastair your 15 suggestions for the "Saturday Sarnie" have been noted...Please calm down!
