Stooking at the Museum

Stooking at the MuseumWho would guess there would be this much grass under the snow. Being a manager has got to be the best job ever. There are so many faucets. What other position allows you can go from administration to stooking hay? The equipment supplied as you can see is very modern. It provides us the opportunity to stook instead of bale. Our slogan is “Where the Past Comes to Life”. I believe I just relived it. Our dumpster is now full of bagged hay. If anyone else would like to experience this unique opportunity just let me know.

I feel good! I knew that I would!

February 28, 2014

Boy, what an undertaking! Removing everything from the office to lay down new flooring was not an easy feat. An accumulation from the past 23 years was a little overwhelming.  Due to the fact that the store was built in 1909 the doorways are not as wide as they are today. In our office we […]

Office Frenzy

January 22, 2014

It seems as if  lately everyday unexpected committments keep popping up.  Sometimes it is overwhelming trying to meet all the deadlines.  I guess we need to take Travel Alberta’s advice “Take Time To Breathe” and hopefully things will fall into place.
