Up again, bright and early (around 7:30 a.m.) to finish loading up Chillicothe show. Once it was in trucks, we made the 3 hour drive back home. The firemen do the rack building there (YAHOO!). They also load a majority of the show. I concentrated on the three ground show fronts. I timed the cakes so matching ones would alternate between the three locations. It was a very neat effect. Dad let me push buttons again (Mom helped with the finale and a big one) which is a lot of fun, but some added stress. I thought the show was beautiful. The firemen that hand-light did an excellent job. Dan got his first experience at re-loading mortars (you’ll have to ask him – LatitudeAdjuster – his opinion on doing that). The firemen also clean the show up (WOOHOO!) so I was in bed early (around midnight). This was my last show for the year. There’s always a bit of sadness that goes with the last show, but I definitely don’t miss hauling racks around and cleaning racks back up. I won’t miss 19 hour days driving all over creation and back-breaking work. I won’t miss the stress of wondering if we’re going to finish in time due to rain and other unforeseen delays. I will miss the shows and standing closer than anyone else. I will miss pushing buttons. I LOVE to push the buttons.
