A one-hundred-year-old rectangular brick building once housed a feed store in downtown Puyallup, Washington. Purchased by Shaun Brobak. He converted it into an upscale pub called Crockett’s Public House.
If you’re a fan of the Food Network, you may have seen it on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”.
We didn’t “discover it” until out of town guests found it on Urban Spoon. Go figure.
Four gentlemen from one of the companies we work with joined us for dinner after an extended day of product installation and demonstration.
The volume in the restaurant rose with the number of patrons enjoying their beverages and meals.
After a couple of round, discussing the ups and downs of the day, the gentleman sitting on my left said, “The thank you note you sent me was the highlight of the last five years of my career.”
After the razzing quieted down from the other members of our table. He stood by his words. He said, “I’ve got it hanging in my cubicle and look at it every day.”
My better half, seated on my right, patted me on the back when I choked up.
Who would expect three short sentences of gratitude written in 2011 to create such an impact?
It reminded me sometimes I get busy and don’t let other know how much I appreciate what they do for me. Knowing my note made someone’s day inspires me to write more.
Thank you Crockett’s Public House for providing the place for my epiphany.
