I started a new management job yesterday, and that of course is exciting! I will be managing a ‘fleet’ of contractors who deliver pharmaceuticals in and around central NY. This is all well and good, but I’m still a week away from leaving my bus driver’s job. I put in my notice for next friday, and this morning I’m wishing it was already Friday. I want to be out of there for two reasons, the new job has a great amount of flexibility in the hours I will be working, and the social environment at the bus barn just drives me up a wall. I will be hard pressed on wednesday when we have our weekly meeting not to stand up and say ‘people, you work with children, you don’t have to act like they do though…’
As i mentioned, at my new job, my shift will be evenings and I will also cover one weekend day for dispatch, really means being available on the phone and a couple of hours a day on site when the loads are distributed. I could be in my shop making sawdust the rest of the time, and after next Friday that is my plan.
I have a craft show coming up in 2 months and I need to get cranking on production, I want to have a wide variety of boards on hand as the show is in a town where there i$ $ome $eriou$ ca$h to be made. Small college town, bedroom community to Syracuse and lots of the hoi poloi live there. The show is in support of their volunteer ambulance corps, so the locals turn out and shop hard there.
SO time to put my new planer into gear, get some stock dressed down and get to making boards…
