Rained all day Saturday. All day long. In and out and in and out came all the little children. One at a time and in twos and threes. Then came a group of 14, all in a line. Pushing and shoving playfully and noisily. I announced that the line must be silent and surprisingly it was. The only thing they were allowed to say was the flavor of the snow cone and the color of the straw. Sixty eight snow cones were served in two days. The snow cone machine is a big hit. I just ordered 4 more flavors and 2500 more cups.
We have green apple, cherry, strawberry, bubble gum, watermelon, blue raspberry, banana, and fuzzy navel. Also a magic elixir that will make any flavor sour. Root beer, grape and tigers blood is coming. Is this the tigers blood that Charlie Sheen has been referring to? No? Just a thought.
This day finds me longing for a nap as I watch everyone pull out. But, the pool is open and the temperature is up, so that won't be happening. The pool closes at 7 pm, so I will content myself with the land of blog until then. The weekend was a busy one. Except for one incident. A group of tenters, still loud and rowdy at 11:45 somehow managed to break the spigot off the water pipe on their site sending a geyser into the air. They awakened our helper, who then shut the main to that area, leaving 24 sites without water. The campers responsible for this promptly packed up and left. They have reservations for the weekend of the 4th of July. I am thinking that perhaps they should cancel them. Just kidding ........... I will do it for them!
Wondering about the title? The phone rang and I answered as I always do. When will your allses pool be opened? "The pool is open daily from 11 am until 7 pm, weather permitting." You mean it is already open? "Yes, it is." Well, it ain't never been open this early before. "Yes, we always open Memorial Day weekend." No, it ain't never been opened this early before........ One year out of seven we had to delay the opening. One time in seven years. Once. And that is all people can remember.
