Justa hoping for some good Karma!

Hope springs eternal. I never thought I'd be typing these words again. But here goes. Drum roll please. Thanks to my buddy Norm I have a possibility of a job. That's right me, the down but not out kid has a possibility of a J-O-B. I don't know all the details yet. But it sounds pretty good to me. Anything that gets me out of the house for a few hours and I can actually start earning some money. I have to fill out my application and talk to the lady that owns the business yet. From what I understand so far it would be driving developmentally disabled people to their appointments. Hey Stan. Maybe I can take you to your appts. LOL. She was talking about 7:00 am to 9:00am taking the van home then coming back in from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. This would be a great way for me to get back into the workforce and check out my real capacity on my leg. Wish me luck.

Things continue to change on the house front.

It appears we have to now hook to the city water. We can't use the well that is already on the property. Oh well! Earl, the gentlemen we are buying the land from is going to do the work so in the long run it will save us some money. Plus it really is better being on City water. If the power goes off we at least still have water. As W. Clement Stone said way back when. "With every adversity there is a seed of equal or greater benefit". We shall see what it is in this experience. Do you have any saying that motivate you? Any dittys that someone told you, that you would like to share?

Here is an interesting twist to the story.

last night Earl (yes, that Earl) came by to look at our trailer. He is looking for a used double wide to buy for his daughter who is now living in a single wide. He looked it over real good and expressed to us an interest to buy it. I told him that he would have to get in touch with our salesman Dan and gave him the number to the dealership. Guess what lot Earl is talking about putting the house on? image That's right, the one right across the street from us!! How weird would that be? looking out our front window or walking out our front door and seeing the place we lived in for 17 years staring us in the face. Is life interesting or what? It may not happen but Earl seemed very interested so I will keep you up to snuff with this latest development. I think that's a good place to end it today. Thanks for stopping by again. Check back tomorrow you never know what is going to happen here. I'm Justa Saying!

Beautiful photo of the first signs of spring. Are those daffodils? Hope all goes well with the job interview. Have Stan put in a good word for you, if he will, because I'm pretty sure he is one of the "disabled" you will be transporting!!

Hey Jackofall58

You ought to write a book of sayings. I'll take a free copy.LOL. I could use one a day on the blog.

Once they see me driving that van they will know I'm the patient. Oh well easy come easy go.

Presiousrock,

Stan will probably be my only passenger. They wouldn't trust anyone else to be in the van with him.

Dearest Mark:

Thank you for the ride offer, but who in thier right mind would get on bus with some crazed medicated bipolar at the wheel. Now I maybe sanity challenged, but after working with the developmentally disabled for many years, they may be a little pissed off at you giving me membership to that exclusive club without thier prior approval. So watch out for a few eggs being tossed at your windows as you go putt putt down the road {laughing}.

I noticed you forgot to shave again this morning from that enhanced glamor shot of you {smirk}.

I hope your having a great day in spite of your aggressive manner and demeaner toward the sweet caring me you described on my blog {Snickering}.

Your Blog Pal:
Stan
