The Honeymoon’s Over
As President of the PPA Mike gave a welcoming speech at one of the first sessions of the conference here in Myrtle Beach. He included a story of our first morning at Voyageur when Don, the previous owner, was still there. We had purchased the business but he was going to "help" us out for a few weeks. He told us to be ready to start work at 6:30 AM the next morning. I wasn’t a morning person and I thought this was a little bit early, but what did I know. We were sleeping up in the dorm, as Don was still in the house, and all of a sudden we awoke to the honking of a horn. We quickly got dressed and went down to see what all of the noise was about. It was only a little after 5 AM and Don was ready to get to work. I’ll never forget what Don said, "Hey kids, da honeymoons over!" Maybe you have to know Don to fully appreciate the story, but it still makes me chuckle to think about it.
