Hey all
Life in Farmington is the same ole same ole, just waiting for spring to come so can blow the dust off of the golf clubs and see if I remember how not to hit the ball.
Missi has mixed thoughts about my new job as I'm on second shift 2-10 (pm) and we don't see a whole lot of each other any more. So I'm not sure what married life is like yet, doesn't seem to be a whole lot different though.
I'm working at a shop in Farmington that manufactures poles for lighting, flags, etc. My job is fitting multipiece poles together, manipulating them to make a good fit. Pretty boring overall, but it pays the bills, I work inside!!!!!, and it's close to home. Nice to have a five minute commute after having been too used to up to one and a half to two hour drives one way (even up to three at times). Loving the five minutes, maybe I'll keep the truck.
If anyone is interested the company I work for is called Valmont-Farmington division, it's a small part of a large corporation, 43(?) locations worldwide, 1.5 billion dollars in sales 2007.
Anyway, time to go to work. Catch you all later.
Ivan

Somedays it seems like I'm convincing one foot to move in front of the other to get to work. Same thing .. inside work .. and it pays the bills. :)
Happy golf club dusting .. there is a course not far from here .. you're welcome to come play it. :)

Sounds like fun-looking forward to the day when the bank isn't making all of the decisions for me and can travel a bit. See you all then. Ivan

Good to hear from you Ivan! ...With the economy the way it is right now, we are probably fortunate to be able to "pay the bills." There will be a day when you are doing a job you love - and who knows, it might not even be inside :)

Take care.

If you or anyone else knows of a job that I might love please let me know so I can start working toward it. I can't think of any such animal. The last few years I've been trying to think of such a thing and have only come up with professional golf-one problem with that-can't seem to get the ball in the hole fast enough. Anyway, until I find something better, work will just have to remain the dreaded thing that I (and everyone else) has to do every day. YAYYYY! #9

So glad to read that you are working. Now when I wake up at night that is one area that I don't
have to worry about anymore!
And moms worry! dk
