On June 4th I left Kentucky driving my RV known as Leggs. The trip is mostly unplanned, it will be interesting to see where I end up. Let's GO!

I am sitting on my patio listening to the birds, cicadas, and The Watterson in the distance. Possible storms tonight. Yesterday it rained most of the day and my babbling brook behind the apartment turned into a torrent.
I have jumped into the job search, finally. But I am being very picky at this point. I have tried a couple other search sites, but I still feel the old tried-and-true CareerBuilder offers the best avenue. I have a resume posted for employers to search, and I have already had maybe 8 responses. Mostly insurance sales, so nothing really interesting. And I have applied to a few jobs I saw posted. Today I had my first interview on something I applied for.
It was with a company based in Souix Falls, South Dakota. A warehouse / distribution position. It would involve a lot of travel (OK!) through the USA. Maybe 50%. My position would be running all of these distribution centers, in charge of the warehouse managers at each location. I think the interview went OK, not DONE DEAL by any means. But the lady I was talking to seemed like she was interested. She had just returned from a cruise through the Inside Passage in Alaska. There were a lot of ALASKA questions which had nothing to do with the job. Cool. It sounds good and I hope they make me an offer, but I am not sweating that.
I am now sitting in my air-conditioned apartment, trying to cool down from sitting outside. WOW. Hey UK, so air-conditioning in England is rare? I heard that there was air conditioning in the Lindo Wing when the ROYAL BABY was born. I never thought of that situation, until you were talking about your FAN setting recently. I understand it is usually not needed. I figure, put it in homes and just turn it on when needed....
I have been fighting my apartment for some basic repairs that were needed after I moved in. I made the request after I returned. It took 8 days. I called maybe 4 times. There were excuses about a recent storm knocking out a bunch of air conditioners, and they were an emergency basis. OK. Then I heard other reasons. Finally TROY my hero showed up and was very apologetic.
Now the toilet flushes with little effort. I am still waiting for a new bedroom blind. Hopefully tomorrow. Right now the blind is stuck open. The DOG WALK goes right by that window. 20 feet or less. Great way to meet the neighbors...
Dutchie has not gone out since the great Thicket / Creek Debacle a few days ago. Occasionally I carry her out to see what is happening. At some point she gets restless, and I go inside and put her down. Then when I drop her down I see she is restless to get inside...
I have not played golf since I was in COZAD, Nebraska.
