Ray works with the wonderful potter and genuinely nice man, Peter Deneen, to select new mug colors for Lookout Point Lakeside Inn. Peter and his staff hand-throw all of the beautiful Lookout Point mugs. The PAII (Professional Association of Innkeepers International) trade show is magnificent. We’ve been able to learn about new products available to the industry, from great bed sheets to innovations in credit card processing.
Yesterday Ray presented a workshop, along with other panelists, on Interim Innkeeping. Using his accounting skills and numbers acumen, he presented the cost/benefit analysis for retaining innsitters when innkeepers must be away from the inn.
The PAII 20th birthday party happened Wednesday evening, with great fun. We were both big losers in the giant musical chairs game.
