Or so it was according to Connie Stevens back in the day. I don't know if you remember those old commercials? They had the tagline "Ace is the place with the helpful hardware man". With that as an introduction----Yesterday, I had occasion to run to a hardware store. I needed a couple of things that I figured I could find at Wal-Mart, but seriously, who wanted to hassle with that the day after Christmas? So, it was off to the Ace hardware store in downtown to see if they had what I needed. They most certainly did. Not only that, but the place was full of good-looking men. I think I may be on to something here. Now I just need to figure out what other projects need doing so I have an excuse to go back. Ace is most definitely the place!
