Well, we are again, home in Jordan Valley. As they say the job at the Padlock didn’t work out. An understatement to say the least. It is good to be back in the house with all the memories and wood and leather. I’m on my way to the shop to see if I can make heads or tails of the mess. Since all the machinery is gone, I suppose I’m now a galoot for sure. I still have all my hand tools and hand power so I just need a work bench.
On the brighter side, on Monday, a week ago, I got a phone call from an outfit in Jackson Hole. They’d heard I was available and had a job offer for me. We interviewed on Friday and we will be going to work as soon as the snow is gone. Carleen will be cooking and I will have a strange combination of job descriptions, from wrangler to PR and recreation income planning to working cattle and fixing fence. The best part is they called me. I also will have $500/month raise. One door closes and another opens. The Lord is good to us.
