Every morning when I got there, these birds (no clue what they are) would grunt, chirp and make all kinds of weird sounds. Apparently it's breeding season, along with a load of nest builders and babies.
Here's two of three guys who showed up almost as early as I did, every single day. Some of the dirty thirty at work cooking up bacon and potatoes for the 114 burritos we made and sold yesterday. Not just any burritos, but 3-4 inches thick and 10 inches long. You get your monies worth around here.
While putting together orders, sending out all that linguica, and adding condiments (fresh lettuce, tomato, onion and thousand island sauce) to over 350 cheeseburgers, I kept the hot dog machine loaded and ready. That was just the lunch servings on one day. I don't want to see another cheeseburger as long as I live.
Remember those birds? Unfortunately, that's where our ice machine is located. To keep from getting pooped on, the guys would throw towels on their heads when we required more ice. The one guy that didn't go the towel route, got bombed!!
That's my order bar ... pretty inventive for having done this only once before. It worked perfectly! Again, this is some of the dedicated crew. Our problem this year had to do with scheduling. The fair came at the same time as every single graduation in the County.
So there you have it! Working the food booth at the fair. I'll tell you about the rest tomorrow, but for now, I'm off to clean up and play with the puppies. Poor babies have been locked up all the time I've been gone. I'm sure they think I've deserted them.
