Happy 4th of July everyone! Up here on the North Rim we are having a parade this afternoon. It will consist of decorated vehicles and lots of water, squirt guns to be exact. If you are on a decorated vehicle then you can, WILL be getting wet by squirting and getting squirted by by-standers that want to participate and have a bit of fun, if that is what you call it. Of course you can not get anyone in uniform wet and you can not squirt the mules or squirt in the dry zones, other wise than that, it's a free for all. Guests will also have squirt guns and water to use if they wish to. I'm a humbug so I will be staying away from the "wet fun" done in my dungeon.
Last night for supper was our 4th of July cook-out. To bad they did not leave some food for the rest of us that got done work at 6PM. Supper hours usually end at 7PM but not yesterday. I had 2 slices of cherry pie-what a great supper!!
Sunday Gary will start in his new position as supervisor of maintenance. Brian & Tanya leave on Sunday to go just down the road to Cliffdwellers. Hope they are happier there than they were here. So with this new position comes new hours. He now gets up at 5AM to be to work at 6AM
every day that he works. No more nights, unless someone really needs help. These hours are great, or would be really great, if I had those hours too. The weeks that I work 7AM-4PM are not bad but the weeks that I work 9:30AM-6:30PM are horrible for me. Once I'm awake, that's it I'm awake! Trying to go back to sleep just does not work. And this week is my late shift week, so I guess I'll just get dressed and go in to my office to use the computer to make more labels for our shelves. I can not seem to get my computer at home to do the same things as I can at work. And I never seem to be able to find the time in my actual work day to be able to get these things done so I might as well make use of this "awake time".
Oh yes and with Gary's new position comes new days off for us. Now we have Tue & Wed's off. Which work really great for me since I have no freight coming in on Sun. or Mon. so I can get some paperwork done while I'm there by myself. The quiet is good and I do get alot done most of the time.
