Last year about 50% of the guests took the cottage keys home with them.
The year before they forgot to take some of their things with them.
This year is the year of the hair.

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Hair, hair, hair.
Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, my hair…
It’s the year of long hair in cottage bathrooms. It is every where en masse. Brushed out and left behind in sinks and in balls on the floor. On shower walls and on mirrors, across toilet tanks and doors. Hair every where I look.
It ain’t pretty!
Of course you can imagine that we have guests who show up every year like clock work and quite often several times a year. We love these guests because they feel like family coming to see us.
The following guest blogger Rusty and his wife – Beth – are just such guests.
“When we arrived at Wayfarer Lodgings, we found that our toilet paper holder was taken apart. The rod was sitting on the sink ledge. There was a conspicuous absence of the bathroom product. All we could figure was that Iris was experimenting with a new way to encourage guests to pay upon arrival. No pay-no paper. Since we always pay soon after arrival, this was not a problem for us. Neither of us were dealing with urgent biological issues. We strolled over to the office, paid our due, and requested a couple of rolls of toilet paper. Iris wasn’t sure whether she should be horrified that she had left the situation for us to find, or pleased that she had discovered a way to encourage guests to pay upon arrival.As an aid to our friend Iris, we left two rolls of toilet paper purchased at the local supermarket on the kitchen table. Maybe she had mercy on the guests who followed us.
This is not the only thing I forget but it is one of the more important things I forget. Sometimes it’s the coffee that gets forgotten, sometimes it’s the towels or the soaps but I forget to place enough toilet paper in the cottages most of the time.
I forget so often that Mike once told a guest “If she forgets again, she’ll be fired”. That guest looked shocked 😯 He thought that he had gotten me into trouble with the boss. Need I tell you that I am Large Marge in Charge?
