I got the metal stems. With any luck, they'll hold up.

Great story. When I run into a store like that, I never go back. I hope you can miss the next hurricane and the next and the next…

We'll see after the hurricane after this one. It is supposed to turn North either over or near Florida. I'm heading back to make Firestone rebalance the tires on Sunday (my first day off so I can do this).

Now for the news. I am departing my job in this area in a couple of weeks. This was supposed to be a temporary stopover on our fulltiming journey, and we have been here nearly ten months. It's been a long day, with a steady stream of employees finding excuses to come by my office today. With all the long faces, you'd think Elvis had died again.
Now, I have been offered a less physically demanding position at a facility that caters to the RV crowd, so after we get Bertha and the B van ready to get underway again, we'll be heading out in another direction, maybe at the end of this trip we will find someplace we can again call home.

Sophie and Marie have both tendered their resignations effective September 25. Where we are going, it will be too long a commute.

Good luck Terry, you and Marie will be in my thoughts, and I'm sure you'll keep us updated on your whereabouts. As always, your help for this rookie has been deeply appreciated.

Let me put it this way. They took my resignation, but not Sophies!

Marie

Hmm, "home?". Full timers are home every minute, or they should be.
