Blue Skies

Plip, plop, plip, plop. 

Awoke to the sound of water running off the roof. The sun shown brightly outside the big window in the front of my bedroom, melting the snow all around it. I celebrated the first full sunny day we've had in ages with breakfast and Sheriff Callie's Wild West on Disney Now. Callie's woodpecker deputy makes "Peck's Prisoner Promise" after they catch the leader of a group of bandits who are after gold in town. When the other bandits return for their leader, Peck vows to stay with them, no matter what. "Toby's Two-Step Trouble" is what happens when he agrees to judge the town dance contest. Everyone in town gives him bribes to consider their moves, until Toby has to figure out how to appease all of them. 

Worked on writing for an hour or so after the cartoon ended. Richard Dawson distracts the sailors and Charles by bringing out Gene, then trying to force Charles onto the plank. Gene's livid; Charles is just shocked he's alive.

Broke at 11 to get organized, change, and get to work early. Not only did I want to avoid being late again, but I needed to pick up something for dinner. The Uber driver showed up in less than 10 minutes, and there were no problems getting there. Had more than enough time to pick up a bowl of Caesar Salad. 

Spent the entire day outside with the carts. We were on-and-off busy, especially as rush hour drew nearer. I'd no sooner bring up carts than they'd disappear, and people would start taking them before I could put them out. No help this time, either. The other two baggers were inside cleaning or cashiering, and the night bagger got recruited to put together a new rack for our weekly flyers.

Didn't get as lucky with Uber going home. Once again, it took me ages to get a ride, and then I had to wait 20 minutes for them to arrive. I think a big part of the problem is almost all of the drivers live in Philly. Most of them have no idea where anything is around here, even with a GPS and their phones. It takes forever for them to find Audubon and Oaklyn when there isn't 5 inches of snow on the ground. 

It was so late when I got home, Sale of the Century was on. Changed and had a snack while watching that. They went back to the regular adult contestants today, though I believe they skipped ahead. The last regular episode had a male champ, and the champ was female in this episode. At any rate, though the other two gave her some competition early-on, she went on to fly through the Speed Round and just barely miss the Bonus Round money.

Finished the night online with Boarding House Blues at Tubi. I go further into this B musical about a boarding house that puts on a show to save their beloved building at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog.
