Yesterday we celebrated the " day at the docks" down at our work sight ,..it's a huge event which'll draw in aprox 20-30,000 people for the day,... There's fishing pens set up or the kids, numerous boat rides from our sport fishing fleet, seminars ,tackle representatives from all the biggies etc,..you get the idea.
For some reason, I'm always in charge of the information booth,.its kind of fun to get out of the shop and mingle with the folks ,we also hand out doggie bones to all the dogs that come on by just to let them know they're welcome too
This year the " day at the docks" landed on my 61st birthday,... Wow,! After my shift , my co worker Eric,my boss Robert and I walked over to our usual Sunday afternoon pizzeria to mingle with the girls and have a couple of beers,.. When we got to our usual table there was a large note taped to our table wishing me a happy birthday with a couple of frothy ones already poured,..one of my fishing buddy's call it in because she couldn't make it down that day but wanted us to have one on her.,,my girl friend Laura met us there and we had a blast,, the girls seem to really like us and comp'd us the whole bill...( big tip tho !!) long story short ,..it was a lonnnnnnng day and a long nite and ol'Dary 's moving a little slower this morning.,especially after my dog scruffy decided that we should go on a three mile walk at 4:30 am this morning to celebrate the occasion.
Today ,being Monday is my normal day for the pwc
and aquarium clean up,... I'm sure it's going to take just a little longer to get organized and motivated enough to accomplish this event,...wish me luck the old man is rolling up his sleeves and away we go ....
