Changes for me...

Jack Member Posts: 1,045
Tomorrow is my last day as a manuf rep in the New England territory. 15 mos ago we merged our company with another to create a larger and all together better organization (<a href=""></a>). This merge represents a buy-out for me and as I get ready to leave, I cannot help but think, " be careful what you wish for, as it may come true".

Fri I am moving to CA to spread my particular brand of joy there;) Both of my girls live in CA, they are not coming back, I miss them and by golly, they can run but they cannot hide, so, the boss and I are going to chase them.

I have licenses, long inactive, to build anything six stories and under in CA as well as my mechanical licenses. I will only work on my own home and those of people I want to get back at. I do have some opportunities in CA and intend to continue working. To young(?) /dumb to quit!

To all of you with whom I worked thru the years, who thought that I was helping you, I must say that quite the opposite was true. It was you helping me, and I thank you for it! Happy Trails, boys, the adventure continues!

    Jack, it has been a great pleasure knowing you and working with you in the past, and I wish you all the very best in your new life "adventure". You and your knowledge and understanding will be missed for sure. All the best to you and your family in this time of adjustment and new challenges. Safe travels and keep in touch.

    Change CAN be good...

    It's all a matter of what you make out of it. I trust you will do the right things.

    Enjoy your new life style, and surround yourself with grand huggables.

    If ever you get out to Colorado, drop me a line, and we can go out and drop some fishing lines.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.
