This morning I cleaned a couple of business’ windows down at Tanger Mall in Branson, Missouri. Once 7:30 hit, the whole place was loud with activity, even though the mall doesn’t actually open until 9. Managers opening up their stores, moms catching with one another as they briskly jog throughout the complex, leaf blowers blowing the loose pollen off the sidewalks, benches getting their daily cleaning… it’s not even 8! I’m used to early, quiet mornings. Not a soul in sight, expect for the occasional dedicated jogger at 5 in the morning. Branson is definitely in full summer tourist season and everyone must get to work as early as possible to stay on top of things… It’s Off to Work We Go!!
