Personal Update

Just thought you’d like to know, I got a job. I start next week. Commence the Snoopy Dance.

If I’ve done my calculations correctly, this move to Pgh was the right one from an economic standpoint. Maybe it’s too early to call it a success, since I haven’t started working yet, but I think I will like this job very much.

You really get to know who your friends are and what kind of character they have when something like this happens to you. All of these people showed the highest quality:












Randy Scott

Pat and Frannie

Sister Beth

All my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins

Tikva and Dave

Thank you all. I’m going to spend the rest of the week working on my house and finding work appropriate clothes. I know they’re in a box here somewhere…
