Alligator Advice

Our phone company recently made us aware of an international (expensive) phone call made from our offices in Indianapolis, IN to the Bahamas. As soon as we heard this we quickly searched our phone log and found the exact call. It was Boatman Geller's new Alligator, Mitch, calling our old Preppy Alligator for some interesting advice. We transcribed the conversation for your enjoyment below.

"Hey Preppy, it's Mitch! You know, Mitch-the new guy. Hey, I wanted to see if I could get a little bit of your time to ask you something? What do you say?"

"Mitch?... Oh, Oh yeah, Mitch! I like that name. Mitch Mitch Mo Mitch Bannana Fanna Fo Fitch Me Mi Mo... Yeah, I've got a little bit of time, but I'm having trouble hearing you over the music at Senor Frogs. What's up?"

"Thanks! Ok, here it goes... Well, do you remember summer time not really ever feeling like summer at Boatman Geller? I mean it's almost like we skipped my favorite time of the year and went straight to winter with holiday album this, and new holiday cards that. Will I ever get a summer?"

"As soon as you leave! Hahahahaha... This is the first time I've ever had an actual summer and it's amazing! That is why I'm in the Bahamas hanging with some of the most well known celebrity alligators in the business my friend. In fact, here comes the one guy from La coste now. Actually, he doesn't look very happy. Oh boy..I should go. Gotta Run Mitch. Hang in there it'll be over soon."

Summer Escape

With the way the economy is, many people are limiting their travel this summer. In fact, I've even heard the concept of staying home and finding something enjoyable to do around the house called a "stay-cation". Well, if a "stay-cation" is in your future or just some extra time, we'd like to introduce you to an author that will surely transport your mind to the wonderful land of Martha's Vineyard, Mr. Philip R. Craig.

Craig's widely known Martha's Vineyard Mysteries showcase his ability to capture every detail and transcribe them to his readers making you feel like you're right there. Although Craig passed in May of 2007, his large collection of books remains a staple in the Geller book collection and those of his adoring fans.

Craig's inspiration for writing a new mystery novel every year from 1989 - 2007 (except 1) went hand in hand with his love for Martha's Vineyard. His style of writing and his style of motivation make Martha's Vineyard Mysteries a "must" on the Boatman Geller summer reading list, because he inspires us to live our style.

What other summer reads inspire you to live your style?

Farewell Mrs. John L. Strong

We want to honor such a notable designer of high-end stationery, Mrs. John L. Strong. Sadly, they have decided to close their doors (Full Story) and we wish them the best in their journey ahead.

Here is our favorite Mrs. John L. Strong menu card that ties in perfectly with Boatman Geller's Hoosier roots. It has a corn on the cob image and we absolutely love it because there's no question that it's our style!
Thanks Again,
