Thanks everyone :)  We were busier than a Friday night tonight.  The news story had a photo of the Sicilian pie and we made more tonight than we ever have by a long shot.  I am tired but it is a good problem to have I reckon :-D

With all the media stuff we got this week we were out of dough 45 minutes after opening tonight.  People were overall ok with it.  We explained we are running at capacity for our 60+ year old bodies and to stay open we have to respect that.  Friday night was as busy as a normal Fri/Sat combined- turned the phones off at 5pm and still it was out the door.  I don't think I ever made so many pizzas in a 4 hour window of time.  It almost killed me but I figure the hype will die down a lot next week.  Either way we are not making more dough.  Another TV station wanted to do a story this week but I said no.  We are done with media coverage for at least 6 months.  This is a wonderful problem to have and to be satisfied with things and not keep growing goes against what our  society teaches us.  Stopping lunches has been working great and our weekly income has come back to what it was with the lunches.  It is giving me Sunday/Monday completely off and keeping my hours to 50 per week.   Judy and I will be home by 7:30 tonight instead of 10 tonight.  A rare nice thing.  Our little universe is good one in todays crazy world  :)
