Papa Robb had knee surgery couple of months ago & now Miss Kathy had same last Friday! She is doing fine, but REALLY missed as she is co-owner & the General Manager. It is "all hands on deck" time: Lyndsay, Saundra & Robin are stepping up big time with Jill & Chelsea now in training.

Let's all start thinking PINK. This Saturday, Aug. 23, from 5:00 - 8:00 pm, the TelWare Team is hosting a fund raiser at Papa Robb's, raising money for the Susan B. Komen Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness. If you simply wear an article of clothing the color of PINK & mention Breast Cancer , 15% of your purchase will support this very good cause (all between 5-8 pm).

Speaking of the Susan B. Komen Walk, our new line of popsicles, produced by the Healthy & Happy Company, is a big supporter also. So remember that PINK IS MORE THAN JUST A COLOR, which is also the name of this Saturday's fund raiser.

Some Thank You's are in order: Ed  Bounds & his Dinosaurs were a huge hit & are actually returning this Fri. night, Aug. 22 & we want to thank him for his energy and devotion to children. To all of our Pirate friends, especially Barnacle Bill & Scarlett Deville. What a wonderful, special & exciting night it was with Bill, "shotglass" Sam and all of their special friends on Pirate Bedlam Night. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Ditto for Wendy & the Queens of D'Nile. What an enjoyable night of Belly Dancing it was. Everyone, especially the families, had a wonderful time and we can't wait to have them return. The young dancers of Motion Dance Studio seemed to have as much fun dancing as we did watching.

Our goal -- slowly, but surely - is to turn Fridays into a real street performers  & entertainment festival. So a very special THANK YOU to our ringleader himself, Tripp The Clown. Welcome back Tripp - you were missed.

Let's close with some news of late. Congrats to recent winner  Amberlee Hutchins who won a Papa Robbs Tee Shirt! --- To all you users of mobile phones & other devices, you can now get even more info from our mobile version of our web site.--- Special, on Wednesday night, Sept. 3, our DJ Lynsanity will feature a Tribute Night to Cabarrus County's own, AVETT BROTHERS. Watch for details on our Facebook page. She will be playing the music of The Avetts & there will be door prizes.

Bye for now - let's blog on next week or so.

Today's news is all about children -- kids, the Shriners, Toys For Tots, and Santa Claus.

You may remember that Santa Claus & Papa Robb have been good friends for many years. Santa has been on vacation in the islands & is packing to return to the North Pole.

But -- SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO VISIT  Papa Robb & all you kids  -- coming next Thursday, August 14. He will be here around 6:30, so bring your list!

Santa also helps many others, including the Shriners & their wonderful children’s' hospitals and the Marines and the Toys For Tots. We are all getting together to help.

Papa Robb & Santa are asking all you grownups to bring a toy for a needy child. Special boxes from the Marines will be on hand & some Shriners will give you some info about their hospitals. Papa Robb hopes all of you will turn out for this great cause for the children in our area.

Special notice to all: Santa may look a little different - he is on vacation - and he might very well be wearing his "Summer Santa" clothes (he might even have his surf board with him!!!

Again, please come out for a good cause and bring the kids to visit with Santa on Thursday, August 14.
