Yesterday, June 11th marked my four month anniversary with my new job in Virginia, hard to believe some periods have gone by fast others have seemed to have dragged. I really am happy here, probably more so that I was at my previous employer. I'm doing a job and I'm getting positively recognized, to me that is everything, and makes Wayne very happy. The boss has already told me that I have exceed his expectations, my peers are happy I'm around and the government customer that I support also likes having me on their program. These four months have been filled with with a lot of different emotions, a lot of happy times, and a lot of unhappy times. Happiness came every time I would get a call from Kari or Carson some of those calls would make me cry - both tears of joy, and tears of anger brought on by circumstances that no longer need mentioning. Happiness also came every time the plane I was on would land in Amarillo as I would get to see the two of the three most important people in my life, Kari and Carson. The other one is my son Peter, who is up in New Hampshire. A week from today on June 19th I leave Virginia to head back to Texas for the "Big Move". June 19th is a special day in that not only do I leave for Texas but this year it would have been my dad's 88th birthday, he passed in 1977. Total happiness will come either late on June 20th or sometime on June 21st when I pull into the driveway in Amarillo and know that a few days later we as a family will be heading to Virginia to our new home, new adventures, new friends, a new church, and a fresh start.

Finally I would be extremely grateful and very very happy if the gas prices would roll back to what they were in 1971 when I first started driving, how about $.27/gallon - it would cost only $5.76 to put 24 gallons in my F-150. I'll probably live long enough to see $5.76/gallon.

I am so glad to hear that you like your job so much. I know that things will be even better when Kari and Carson are with you again and you can be a family.
