Desert View - Day 92 - Carbon Copy


5:56 am - Saturday - February 10th - Grand Canyon - 34º F, 40% humidity, wind 5 mph out of the southwest.....forecast high for today is 60º F with winds in the 20-30 mph range with gusts up to 40 mph, but it will be sunny.....BP 127/81.  I haven't been publishing my BP every day, but it is consistently in the range I published today.  That little 20 mg pill is doing its job superbly!

I was out the door on my way to work by 7:12 am.....about 3 minutes later I came upon this bull elk giving me the stink I drew closer I saw that three other bull elk had already crossed to the other side of the road and were waiting for this guy.  It's the first time I've seen this many bull elk together in one place here at Desert View.....

.....I continued to walk slowly forward and eventually he decided to join his brethren and continue feeding down the hill with them.  The rest of my walk was uneventful, and I arrived at the back of the General Store by 7:25 am.  Within minutes I was clocked in and going about my opening duties.

Friday was another slowish day, although I finished with $125 in cash to didn't really feel that busy to me, and I believe a big chunk of that $125 resulted from a few t-shirt and coffee mug sales.....our coffee mugs are very expensive!

TLE was on site by 11:55 am.....that girl is very punctual!  I wasn't able to count down my drawer for about 10 minutes as security arrived just after TLE to pick up our deposits from the past few days.  By the time I counted down my drawer it was almost 12:45 pm.....usually I'm out the back of the store and on my way home before 12:30.

I spent the afternoon reading and 3 pm I decided it was time to do my daily workout on the stationary bike.  TLE was home by 5:30 pm, and then it was time for me to fire up the Sea-B-Que to grill some carne asada for tacos!  We had planned to watch the Winter Olympics Friday night (they begin broadcasting at 6 pm mountain time), but most of Friday night's show was dedicated to the opening ceremonies, which is of no interest to us.  By the time they began to broadcast the various competitions it was time for me to go to bed.  We did watch a recorded episode of 'Gold Rush', however.

And that was our Friday......pretty much a 'carbon copy' of most of our work days here........closing in on 100 days at Desert View.....where has the time gone?
