Saturday was a lot like Friday.....when 11 am rolled around it was time to turn on the A/C, and we left it on until we left for work, at which time we opened the windows and shut down the A/C.....leaving the salon window open turned out to be a mistake.....more on that later!
We lounged around until 12:30 when we began to get ready to drive into work once again. We were in the car by 1 pm, and on our way up the Gardiner River gorge for another day at the General Store. While there was a long line of vehicles in front of us we still managed to arrive at the General Store by 1:15 pm.
One of our co-workers injured their back on their off day.....they made a valiant effort to work, but scooping ice cream with a bad back was not in the cards so they headed off to the local YNP clinic and then home for rest of the shift. This person also had the 'CLOSE" shift with me, so we had to scramble to move another 'CLOSE' shift person into the fountain. I once again pulled my cashier drawer and acted as cashier for the last 4 hours of my shift.
It began to, unexpectedly, rain about 6 pm, and continued raining on and off all night. It was accompanied by some pretty bright lightning flashes, and loud thunder rolls. This, of course, helped bring the temperatures down into the 70's inside, and 60's outside making the rest of the evening much more comfortable.
Another of our co-workers in the store, someone I have not gotten to know yet, quit after being here since April, and that caused a shake up in the scheduling. Like most of the hospitality industry, the only constant in life here is change. It became necessary to juggle the schedule to make sure there were enough cashiers on duty, so our off days have been changed to Tuesday/Wednesday, and we now have two 'MID' shifts thrown in for good measure.....Monday's and Thursday's, otherwise we still have the 'CLOSE' shift Friday's, Saturday's and Sunday's. So our new work week runs from Thursday through Monday each week.....I'm reminded of a David Bowie song entitles 'Cha-cha-cha-changes'......
We were on our way home by 9:40 pm with an extra passenger....we gave a ride home to the spouse of the person who injured their back and had to go home early. We're just about finished watching the original 'Twin Peaks' series from 1990-91....there were just two seasons, and the second season had 22 episodes....we finished episode 21 and then went to bed. Now the HBO continuation of this old series will make more sense.
On the open salon window mistake......when I sat down at my laptop this morning to compose today's missive I discovered the throw rug was damp......doh! It's outside now drying in the sun, which just came out.
Another day in paradise.....thanks for stopping by!
