Well the long weekend is over and it's back to work for many, but not me. I will never be scheduled to work on a Tuesday because I'm simply not available to be scheduled. The same goes for Wednesday. Ain't it nice?
The weather forecast for today is hot again, with our expected high to be around 96 (F). That's toasty, not nearly as warm as some of the temperatures many of you have been experiencing this summer, so you all have my condolences. I have to admit I do find it rather amusing that this late in the Summer, or perhaps I should say this close to Fall, we are dealing with our warmest temps so far this year. My A/C is finally doing what in previous years it did throughout late June, July, and August.
Business was slow yesterday, at least around the Flooring desk, other departments in the store were busy, but we weren't. There were weaners and hamburgers from the grill, and chicken, too, but I stuck with the burgers and weaners. And I didn't graze. I'm rather pleased about that since I need to take off a few pounds before November arrives.
What was selling was our Halloween decorations. Oh, my, my, my, were they flying out of the store. I snapped a few pics to give you all an idea of what that set-up looks like. The Jack Skellington is 18 feet high, something almost overwhelming when you're standing right next to him.
