Tuesday we worked 12 to 5 - well, that was a first. Of course, it is the busiest time of the day, and we worked our tushies off for those five hours. We couldn't cook sausage fast enough and ran out twice. The tater fries are almost always a problem, either there aren't enough and we have people lining up waiting, or they are piling up under the heat lamps. Either way, we're sure making Dolly some money!
Yesterday was a day off and Gary felt well enough to hit that little white ball around. He left at 8 am and I cleaned up, did some computer work and went a little shopping, but bought nothing. On my way back look at what happened to our odometer:
We got home within minutes of each other, ate some lunch and then headed over to Dollywood to get some icecream. We picked up our cones and while looking for a table, noticed our two managers having ice cream in the corner. Hmmmmm, must be nice.
Thunder boomed overhead, but it didn't rain a drop. We went exploring a little, talking to the various shop workers and tried to remember who had what. Gary decided that it would be a good time to eat at Red's Diner, so we had some burgers and fries. The burger was delish, but the fries were a little cold, and the milkshake, well, I won't have one of theirs again. Not a real milkshake, just a shake.
It was fun saying hi to everyone we knew and meeting some RVers we never see that work up the mountain. We didn't ride anything, although we missed the train by 5 minutes and decided not to wait half an hour for the next one. Gary was starting to get pooped, so we headed home, had a little campfire and talked with neighbors for a while.
Today we had to work 12 to 4 - how nice is that. Again, there was no time to breathe as it was guest after guest straight for four hours. Whew. It would be so much nicer if it was cooler, so we are looking forward to the fall to be sure!
Tomorrow we head back to the Doctor's for our weekly visit, but may have some time to play in the afternoon. I will let you know what we decided to do. And we have some big plans for next week!
Hope your week rides smooth.
