Almost There.....part 2

I really failed the color vision test. Really failed it.

It seems I see reds and greens differently than most of you see them. Hey, red is red and green is green. How do you see them?? Right....

I haven't heard any official word from the company, but this could and probably will pretty well nix the job for me. I'll have to wait till next Wednesday or so to find out for sure.

The "vacation" continues......

Almost There.....

The company I've been interviewing with made an offer today. I accepted.

Now all I have to do is pass a drug test (no problem) and a color vision test (maybe a problem). I failed this same test for the Air Force and passed it (after many minutes of looking at those dots) for my last job.

Of note:

I lost a critical hard drive last night. It just quit reading itself almost as quickly as you are reading this. Fortunately most the data was backed up. But I did lose some very recent pictures of our trip to Vermont and Yankee Stadium. Bummer!

More Job Stuff.....

I had an interview today. The Quality Manager really liked my qualifications. He should. I only have 30 years in my field.

They called this evening. They want me to come back for a second interview. Dare I think this one is in the bag?

Too bad, I was really beginning to enjoy this unemployed thing.....

At Yankee Stadium

At Yankee Stadium

Well, we went, we watched, the Yankees won.

HOWEVER, let the record show that the RED SOX are 1 game out of first place and the YANKEES are tied with Tampa Bay for LAST PLACE.

Nuff said.

Well, it finally happened. My bride and I found a few days to get away.

It doesn't really "count", her two sisters were with us. But we did have some needed time alone.

We went to her father's birthplace in northern Vermont. Man, it is pretty up there!

We're planning to go back sometime, just her and I.

(sigh.) Hope it's sometime soon....

Alas, Babylon

Looks like it has finally happened. My greatest fear realized. I'm going to Babylon. No, no! Not that Babylon! The Babylon otherwise known as Yankee Stadium!

This will be tough for a die-hard Red Sox fan like myself. I hope no one at my church finds out.

I've never been to the Mecca of ballparks, Fenway Park. Guess I'm saving the best for last.

Oh, how we sacrifice for family......
