It's been like the last day of school before summer vacation around here!
First we had to play a bit of a joke on Gerry - the customer who has the main claim on Table One. Gerry and Marie have been in 4 out of 5 days this week, and I think have missed out on their favorite table only once. But once is enough for Gerry. He makes Marie haul ass so they can get here at 4:45, to guarantee that "his" table will be open. Kevin came up with a plan - we'd put police tape around Table One, so no one else could sit there! And that's what we did before lunch service today - since Marie had given me a heads up that they'd be in for one last meal before vacation.
Table One - apparently out of commission...
Ha! Gerry is really pleased that we will go to such lengths to make sure he gets his table!
And then of course I had to take a picture of Nicole in her 8th month of pregnancy. Oops - what is this? some kind before and after shot?
Nicole is expecting a baby girl sometime in the next 4 or 5 weeks - we all hope it happens over vacation so that she can be right back to work on the floor when we come back, but that is probably not going to be the case. We do have a back-up plan if the baby doesn't arrive before her March 20th due date. Nicole has been managing in the dining room quite well, big as she is, and I think the regulars have enjoyed seeing the blossoming of a baby.
