The End of Winter

There’s always one sure sign that winter has come to an end.  That’s when all of our soda machines get filled up for the year.   The first time loading the machines is always the worst.  They are a usually pretty filled with winter debris, so we have to clean them out.  Then, we make our Coke rep super happy and place the order to fill all of the machines.

We were a little ambitious this year and ordered these probably a week too soon.  The weather has been teasing us this spring.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we’re definitely ready for it to be DONE!

Since our machines are outside, we have to make sure the temperatures cooperate.  Frozen soda isn’t any fun to clean up.

Steve got busy one day and began loading up all of the machines.

He had a good system down.  Steve is known as the box fairy around these parts.  This time of the year, we have many boxes that come into the shop.  We put them outside of the door and Steve puts on his fairy wings and hauls them away.  We were very happy to have Steve return after a looooong winter.

The best part about Steve is that he is happy in every single job he is performing.  You seriously can’t beat that!

How about you?  Have you ever loaded up a pop machine?  I used to do this job when I was a little kid.  I thought it was pretty much the coolest thing ever.  It definitely was higher on the fun list than picking up garbage on the course!
