Wearing a black apron, the Governor hurried back and forth behind the counter at Lollypops on Bridge Street in Saratoga, keeping up with the rush of orders for ice cream cones. The little desert shop was bustling with customers and all eyes were on the new employee. The flat and lopsided shapes of the ice cream cones coming across the counter was evident that the governor faced a stiff learning curve. Nobody cared. Everybody was smiling. While filling an order fro a double scoop of butter pecan in a waffle cone, the Governor said he was in town to launch National Travel and Tourism week in Wyoming.
