5/21/15 Open the Park Day

(Show Low, AZ)

Today was a park wide clean up day.  Everyone pulled weeds on their own lots and some worked on the common flower beds situated all over the park.

For their efforts the park provided hot dogs, a drink and a bag of chips.

I thought the park looked great just as it was but then I never looked closely at the residents flower beds.

The ad I placed for new workampers paid off quickly.  A couple from Missouri who is one month into their fulltiming life answered the ad and they happened to be only 2 and 1/2 hours away in Gallup, New Mexico.  We had several others answer the ad also but when this couple left a message for the Activity Director after hours and didn’t get a phone the first thing the next morning they jumped in car and drove here.  Needless to say they got the job!  So they’ll be here tomorrow.

We have learned that the closing of the pool has come under our duties and this does not make me and Bob very happy at all.  The pool closes at 8pm every night and it takes about 40 minutes to close it.  The pool has to be covered every night and  its huge!  Even the hot tub is a good sized one.


At 8pm, if there isn’t anything going on we’re settled in our chairs for the night watching prime time TV.  In addition to the pool having to be closed every night the pool has to be uncovered every weekend morning by 7:30 and on holidays that the regular maintenance staff is on.

Oh what have we gotten ourselves into?
