I must admit I had some trepidation about having so many animals on the property, especially when I learned that they were bringing a puppy along. What I was overlooking was the fact that these are show dogs, and thus well-trained to be on their best behavior even when traveling to strange places for the first time. If it wasn't for the occasional howl from the run in the backyard when they were outside, I wouldn't even have known they were around. And none of the other guests had any problems with their furry neighbors. Because the pet-friendly suite has a separate entrance from the rest of the property the anmals never had to cross paths with the other guests.

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
There are only a few days left to get a "Wicked Good Gift Certificate" to give to others, saving the bonus gift for yourself of course.
We still have lovely whirlpool rooms with fireplaces available for New Year's Eve. You can walk to the big dance down at the Towers if you don't want to watch the ball drop on TV. This would be the perfect time to make the reservation since you are on the computer already.
It is also time to start planning that summer vacation. The office vacation schedule probably comes out on the second and you want to be prepared to grab the best weeks for your trip to the beach. I'm just saying, it's going to be here before you know it.

In a little over two hours, the girls, under Foreperson Seely's energetic direction, managed to unsnarl and test 17 strings of lights, wrap some of them around all three flights of stairs, add garlands of fake holly, hang round red ornaments on each segment of the glass block border, and cover every flat surface with some kind of holiday knick-knack. Everything from sea captain Santa to the snowmen picket fence found its place.
By 1:30 all that was left was the tree. While the junior innkeepers hauled out the stand and washed it down, I toted the 9 foot balsam in from the yard. For once we got the size just right, so no radical surgery was required before we could lock it into the stand.
We then sent Seely's helpers home. She tackled the lights for the tree while I returned to stringing popcorn. Ornaments may have to wait until tomorrow, but we should be ready by the time the town lights its tree at 5.
Check back tomorrow for photos of the decorations. Better yet, stop on by for our impromptu Open House and see them for yourself.
