THEN, I was able to go see one of my favorite accounts. I service two tug boat accounts on the port of Charleston. What this entails is driving out on the docks and boarding each tug to check their first aid supplies, AED's, etc. It was a crystal clear day in Charleston, a little cold and windy, but beautiful. I LOVE going out on the water. Of course, they were docked, but they always say they will take me out if I just say the word...hmmm...thinking Springtime sounds good to me! Wonder if they would let me do a little fishing, too?? Ha!
These are the tugs: Christopher, Cape May, Elizabeth, and Ann Moran
This is the pier/dock I drove down...and backed all the way back up

Then later I was at another of my "fun" accounts, the North Charleston Recreation Department and I noticed a caravan of rigs, trailers, RV's, cars, etc pulling in the parking lot of the Armory across the street, where I also had to visit. I talked to my contact to discover they were filming an episode of Army Wives, which just happens to be one of my favorite shows. I knew they filmed in North Charleston, so it wasn't a complete shock, but it was pretty exciting to be right there. I was able to service the Armory as usual, while avoiding camera, light and power cords. I can't wait to watch that episode, now!
Some of the trucks with equipment for the shooting of the episode
Some of the trailers/RV's for the celebrities
You can see the 1st truck, some lights on the roof and the "Armory" sign on the building
THEN, I found out one of the largest construction companies in our area is having a huge meeting ON my birthday (February 11-in case you were wondering) and I have been invited to come and sell cabinets, refill cabinets, etc while they are in the meeting! Sounds like a great way to spend my birthday morning to me!
So as bad as Monday was, Tuesday was much, much better. Anytime I can get on the water I have a good day. Just being near it is so calming to me. I even did some of my paperwork yesterday morning at the Country Club of Charleston where I sat by the Cooper River and enjoyed the view. I can totally handle bad days as long as there are more good than bad, and as long as they are followed with days like Tuesday!
