Today we had whiners show up at the door. It has rained through their entire vacation and we are the last stop before they board a plane tomorrow for home. They saw the stairs to their room and started whinging again about how they had to carry all of their suitcases up the stairs so they could consolidate everything for the plane. Whinge, whinge, whinge. Heartless I am not so I gave them the private room off the deck so there were no stairs involved at all. No upcharge. They thanked me.

The room they didn't want is half of a suite. 5 minutes later a group drove up looking for 2 rooms. The suite was exactly what they needed. Of course, it can't all be good so when I came back downstairs from showing them to their room I found candy wrappers and menus strewn all over the living room.

I had my happy day good thing yesterday. I got a call from a lady saying they had been here last year for a funeral and I probably do not remember them - I confessed I do not remember the name but will remember them when I see them (I will whether I do or not!) - and they are coming back for a Memorial Service a year later (they got the funeral rate last year but did not even mention it and neither did I - Memorial do not count!). She booked 2 rooms so Saturday I have a full house! Bride & Groom arrive Sat for 2-nights.
