The good news is that I found new employment, basically the next day, though it took two weeks and a few days for me to go through the back ground check, physical and drug screening and all the modern hiring procedures for me to actually start work on the 25th. I have left the industrial truck repair field and went back to my automotive roots, which I have actually been thinking about doing for a cfew years now anyway.So two full weeks in and I'm beginning to settle in nicely and for the first time in many years am actually enjoying my job. It is flat rate and were going into the slower season I'm told so right now the money ain't so hot, but the guys assure me it will get much busier. If that's the case, I will be able to nearly match my former pay on average over the year and like my job to boot, so all is not bad but looking brighter.
No work has been done since I lost my job on any of my tractors so there is nothing to report on that front. I hope to resume my Bolens rebuild in the spring, but for now, money and weather are going to put that to bed for the winter. I will be in touch from time to time and hope to have more going on here in the spring. So hope everyone has a good and safe winter and I wish you all well until we talk next.
