Busy like a horse pooping

Things have been cookin' over the past week here at Mountain Sky.  The dining room manager is gone for ten days, so that leaves me in charge.  Nothing like getting thrown in the deep end.

That meant I had to work for seven days straight and I had to be around the dining room a lot to make sure everyone knew what to do and all that jazz.  Fun stuff!  Really.

To give you some background, here is how things work here at Mountain Sky-there are managers for each department, such as housekeeping, bar, dining room, kids program, groundskeeping, etc.  The bulk of employees are called "all-arounds," who work in rotations through each department.  This means people know a little about a lot, but need to be reminded about all the little details.  So I had to double check stuff all this week, although all of the people who are here, returnees at this point, do a good job and know what they are doing.

Oh, and you should know that I get to ring a giant bell for each meal.  Awesomeness.

And if you've been around horses at all, you will know that they poop a lot, hence the title of this post.  I have been hiking and running on trails around the ranch, and they seem to be about half mud and half horse excrement, which is fun, and makes for fancy footwork.  AKA they poop a whole lot to cover so many miles of trail with their special presents.  You get used to it.
