Spring is Good!

First, I want to thank the people that participate in this chat area. I have come up with some real knowledge and added what I could to it whenever. There have also been a few things that I really didn't need to know.
Let me explain why spring is good starting with January.
First, I got laid-off from a position I had with a company and went back home to bother my wife.
I tried to find work but decided nobody want to hire an old-fart (I'm 59).
So, I figured I would start my own business. My wife is a good person, she supported me, she thought it was better than sitting on my butt. The banker thought I was nuts!
So, I get this company going by contacting various companies to market their products that are unique and not readily available in the area.
Dad turn 90 the first week in Feb., died the second week in Feb. Mom had departed in July last year. My aunt who was 96 died two weeks later and my neightbor who was 89 died two weeks after that. I'm getting to be a regular at funerals. Well I figured that was the three in a row and where do we go from here?
I get my products on inventory and start getting orders and all of a sudden I get a job offer for sales (to sell Harley's a dream job). I take the sales job, which starts next Tuesday. But, I figure I don't want to give up the business that I have already developed. We (the wife and I) should be able to run that in the evening and weekends.
So, this morning I get a call from another reps that wants me to sell GPS systems for him. When it rains it pores!
And, a friend, even gave me a dog yesterday. That will make four on the farm, three percentage wolves, and this one siberian/whatever.
What changed this? It sure wasn't the war, it had to be the $10 soybeans and $3 corn. GWH

Well think all of us share the feeling of loss, when family and friends go forth, and being at funeral homes too.

You are receiving many many blessings, and for that, you are getting overwhelmed, choose wisely.
Be happy and thankful.
