John at the mall from 3 to 11 today. One of our blog followers asked exactly what John does at the mall. Before John retired while he was still working at the fire department he also worked part time at the Renaissance Mall in facilities maintenance. When we got back to MS in November John went by to visit with they guys at the mall and they said they would be needing some help so now he works when they need him. If he works the 7a-3p shift, they unlock service areas and corridors, blow off sidewalks and parking lots, clean the parking lots of trash, clean out pond pump and fountain filters and all the other maintenance issues that come up. The 3p-11p shift empties all trash receptacles, clean 3 public restrooms and management offices, turn on and off all decorative lights in parking lots, safety checks, basically keep the place clean and operational. This past week they installed Christmas lights in the parking lots. The mall is an outdoor mall meaning you walk from store to store outside.
Last night while John was at the mall I went over to Bob and Marcy’s for a rematch on 10 Penny. It was Bob’s lucky night. He scored a low 10 points and was the winner.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
