Thanks Lorac for the correction. That is why I should not be writing posts at midnight:)

Hi Joyce,
I have been calling since before 10 this morning to get a reservation in, but no one answers the phone. I did leave a message. Hope everything is alright.

JEllen said...

Darlene, You can leave a message. It asks for you to either state 11-12 or 12-1. Both times are currently open.

I don't think there is enough tape for that part of the message as there is not information on it - it cuts off - so I don't know if it went through or not, please reserve 2 spots - 1 for me and 1 for Carolyn for the 11-12 seating. Thank you.
