Not sure most of you know but since starting Ceramic Grill Store, Kelsie, our daughter, has been in charge of shipping. Well today, Kelsie starts her new career as a full time college student at the University of Texas in Austin.


It was a tear filled morning when she drove off for a couple days of UT orientation. Terri and I will catch up with her Wednesday with a truck load of dorm room stuff and officially move her grow up so fast. I already miss her..... ACGP, Inc.

    What a great day, Tom!

    Congratulations to you, Terri and Kelsie!

    A very proud Mom and Dad, no doubt.

    Clearly, her VP responsibilities will set her on her path to success in business life (and supporting the oldies?!!)

    Wishing the very best to you all . . . oops. I mean 'Y'all'.
