Times are tough my friend. I had reached rock bottom, selling ice cream. But just today I got a job at a local garage pumping gas, and working on cars too. And I also got the word from my brotherinlaw that the hndot had some openings, so I rushed down to get my application in. But still things are very unstable these days. I just talked to a guy over the weekend. 6 months before retirement, his job laid him off. Now he does not know what he is going to do.
It gets better....I hope!
