My second official day on the job went well, and I'm learning the cash register and all the procedures a little at a time. My previous experience was with very basic NCR's that didn't do anything except tally up the proceeds - that's a ridiculous concept these days. I am also learning a bit more each day about the Fort, its history, the stock we carry, etc. I love it, I love it, I love it!
I think I have my costume together although the skirt is so big in the waist I will have to wrap it around and pin it to fit. All those gathers do nothing to flatter hips, no matter what shape or size. I will post pictures taken at the big event, including one of myself if I don't look too outrageous!
It has been drizzling off and on all day, and is chilly. I have taken to carrying my camera with me all the time just in case I run across an alligator. Another volunteer saw the baby and got a photo - you would think a baby gator would look like a baby, but this one just looks like a medium sized one. Evidently there are lots of large fish in the moat, and they only can escape to the river and the sea when certain gates are opened. Thus the gators are a well fed bunch.
One more day to work and then I have a day off. I will drive to the IGA at Tybee Island and plan to take the tour at the Fort of the prison area where 600 Confederate officers were starved to death in a cruel manner. I walked through it on my own a couple of days ago, but the tour will give me a lot more information.
