Bein's that next weekend is Memorial Day weekend, many two leggers will be flockin' to the local state parks for picnicin', swimmin' and hikin'. I took it upon myself to make sure my favorite park - Cowan's Gap, was ready to take on the masses.
As we pulled into the parkin' lot early yesterday mornin', I announced to everyone within earshot
and then some that I was on duty and inspection was about to begin.
Paddle boats ....
|....are lookin' good to go. ✔|
Rescue equipment and safety signs are in place; such as this "Swim at your own risk" sign - because not all 2 leggers are as good at swimmin' as I am. ✔
Courtesy signs had been placed throughout the park askin' for guests to pick up after their pooch ~ 'cuz nobody wants to step in dawgie-doo-do, myself included. ✔
I left no stone or leaf unturned to make sure the trail was in good shape....
....and the water fountains are in workin' order. ✔
Halfway around the lake, I ran into another ranger. We quickly compared notes and then moved on. No time for play today.
Last but not least, I did a quality assurance check-up with guests as they finished their meal and offered to assist with
leftovers clean-up. ✔ and double ✔ ✔
Speakin' of ✔'s, check this out - Grandma Hoover decided to make an appearance! She's gettin' up in years but I think she's still quite a looker. Can you see the family resemblance?
Bein' the feisty old dawg that she is, she let my superiors know how she felt about me havin' to work so hard, especially on a Sunday.
It's no wonder I act the way I do - attitude seems to run in the family.
Well, I hope you at least were able to get out and enjoy the weekend and didn't spend all your time workin'. Let's just keep our paws crossed that this work week doesn't take it's good ol' time checkin' outta town.
