We can’t get over the sweltering heat we are experiencing now, well not the heat so much as the humidity. We can’t remember it being like this last year, but when Linda looked up the weather on the net it turns out that it was very similar. It strikes us funny that this year a lot of locals are saying it was a lot worse summer than they have had for a long time, and when Linda looked up on the web it seems everyone was saying the same thing last year. It also seems that it was as hot at this time last year, so I guess we are just going to have to tolerate it.
I have been continuing my work at the men shed and the Museum as usual, and am settling in to my new job as treasurer at the museum, not much happening money wise yet. We had a tour book in last week on Friday, a mystery tour from Toowoomba as it turned out, which was on a day we are not open so we did organise it anyway. The day worked out fine, with 45 visitors that we broke up into groups in our usual manner, and showed them all a good show, they all seemed to enjoy it very much, as is usual. The frustrating part about it was when I emptied the donation box to find the tour operators had placed $5.00 in it. We do not have an entry fee, but seeing we put ourselves out and four volunteers attended, which the museum reimburses expenses, we did expect they would give just a little bit more, maybe enough to at least cover expenses.
