Taking a promotion to a Superintendent level at the mill

Good paying job for Soperton, Ga. Unfortunately, I suspect they will want more of my time

I will become more and more selective on what I work on from here on but you can bet I will continue to maintain the company CEO's 05 CLK and his wifes X5 (he lives in Baton Rouge, La.). Whenever it needs service he lines up a trip to the mill.

Life is full of ups and downs. Its always good to remember so you won't be too surprised when bad things happen and not get too high when its all good. (Its rarely all good!)
