Tonight's guests are two middle aged fellows, nice guys, who hail from the Calgary area. They are specialists in plastic pipe welding and are here to do a job in the area. Neither have stayed at a bed and breakfast previously, so I sure do hope they enjoy it and want to come back and also recommend us to others.
The bad part is the heating upstairs is intermittent, not working most of the time. There is an infrared heater in the kitchen for supplemental heat and it does a fantastic job, but cannot heat the entire upstairs. The plumber did not show up. Hopefully, he will come soon. Tomorrow, I will plug in two small ceramic heaters in the kitchen as well, so we will be warm for breakfast.The guests are staying on the lower floor and they will be comfortable tonight, at least. They did say they would miss a TV, though one suggested they play a game or two of crib instead, since the crib board was out and ready for them. I hope they do. They took themselves out for dinner at Whalley's Pub in Elk Point, a good place to dine and have a brew, if one is so inclined. I will see them tomorrow for breakfast, bacon and eggs, farm style, with homemade fried bread and fruit salad to start. The coffee is organic and hot. They are discussing whether or not to order a bag lunch for the next day and possibly the Farmhouse supper. Of course, if they liked Whalley's, they may just elect to go there, because they cannot smoke at the Fat Ewe. It is so great to meet people from different places who do neat things like these guys do. I will enjoy our breakfast time together tomorrow morning. That is the best part of having a bed and breakfast...the folks that have tales to tell. I am blessed to be able to hear them, too.
