Tick Tock

Wow, we are definitely in single digits!! One week from today we will be pulling out of Lake Tahoe. It has been such a stressful summer. The lack of business that the casinos have been experiencing at Lake Tahoe this summer is down right scary. I am very grateful we got as many hours of work as we did, but, of course the money was a lot less. A double whammy for sure. Who knows what next year will bring??

Even though we had to cancel our planned "BB '08" vacation, we have come up with a "Plan B" that will allow us to see our much missed family. Another reason to be grateful, that, and the fact gas prices have come down......a little anyway.

We have today off so I am making my last trip to Trader Joe's this summer. Have to get some of our favorite snacks for our road trip!! I am really going to miss that store!! Before heading down the mountain to Trader Joe's , I will be going to the Farmer's Market for the last time.....I will really miss that too!! I am going early so I can get back to help Rex work on our "hitting the road list". He woke up yesterday with his back out so I will have to help more than usual. This is a terrible time for that to happen!!

It is ironic that all summer we have been getting only 3 or 4 days of scheduled work...now with the Labor Day holiday weekend, we are scheduled 4 days in a row, which is the last 4 days we will be here so we have a lot to do on our last two days off, today and Thursday!! Good thing we have our routine worked out and can execute it like a well oiled machine!!

The clock is ticking and we will soon be "on the road again"!!

Can't wait to see you guys! Neil and I leave that day on "your vacation". Kathy and Wendy join us a couple of days later, culminating in a "two guys" parade in Osceola Wisc on the 7th. Watch for that blog.........
