Tuesday I bought 600 Jimmy Dean breakfast sausages and stored them in the Kiwanis freezer. Thursday I had the empty propane bottle filled and put it back in storage at Nelson’s. I also was in leeway last night at TOPS, and had a nearly perfect day for the Spark nutrition measurements. Today I bought Tylenol and groceries for the BW. I got everything on her list and some more, so we can keep eating for a while.
Tomorrow we will go to Fairway Pizza for lunch with the TOPS crowd – a friendship lunch that everyone is invited to attend because it’s not a real TOPS function. Then later I will pre-stage two five gallon containers of water at the “Y”, where the triathlon will be on Sunday. We have to set up in a parking lot and bring everything necessary to cook pancakes and sausage and serve pancake breakfasts to 300 or so kids and grownups. We just can’t move it all now with the second grill on the trailer, so I move the water and some other utensils in and cover everything just before they lock the gates overnight. That makes it easier to set up Sunday morning.
Sunday I get to Nelson’s by 6:30 to load things, along with my new check list to be sure we load everything. I couldn’t find the clipboard and checklist we have been using, so I printed a new one. I also reduced the font from 12 point to 11 to make room, and added the chafing dish and some other new stuff we use now. With luck the races will be over in good time. Then we pack up, and I help Burnham push the trailer back up into his back yard. Then I’ll come home with a lot of stuff that has to be washed. I think I got it all back to Nelson’s by 4:00 the last time we did this which makes it a pretty long day, but I took time out for lunch and ran a load of the smaller stuff through the dishwasher, so it’s not all work.
I also found out that I’m going to be the treasurer of our combined club for one more year, but maybe John P. will take over next year (2012). If not I might resign because I don’t like to stay in one job for more than four years, and nothing will make me be president.
