Working a Split Shift
Ted with Alan Searle of the Yaquina Wavelength at the Yaquina Bay Hotel
In Ted’s “Ramblings from the Rambler” Daily Diary he states on Day1 that “Walking is his new job.” And if walking is his new job, then on Day 2 he worked a split shift. And for good reason.
When we arrived in Toledo, we were welcomed by Kenneth and Polly Erickson, managers of the Yaquina Bay Hotel. News travels quickly in a small town. Kenneth called Alan Searle, publisher of the Yaquina Wavelength, and soon Ted’s first interview was arranged for 11:00 A.M. the following day. We were very excited about the interview and appreciated the interest. So Day 2 went like this, a morning walk (work), a mid-day interview (fun), an afternoon walk (work), a split shift.
After the interview we had a quick lunch and then Ted was on the road again, finishing the second day at Burnt Woods. Day Two was a day of highs and lows. The excitement of the first interview, a high. An unfortunate muscle pull at the end of the day, a low. We’ll see what Day Three brings.
