Spring sprung surprises

by on May.24, 2009, under Uncategorized

On or about 3 March 09 I was called in to the office at xpedx Cincinnati to be informed my services of the past 20 years were no longer needed. Not just me, but my coworker too. The end of a 30+ years of Taussig’s Graphic Supply;xpedx graphics service in the Cincinnati area.

Wow, I have no job. That took a few minutes (days) to sink in. In fact, the 45 ride home was full of a whole range of emotions. First and for most, survival. What should I do now? I have a little breathing room financially but watching other people around me, including my wife Darlene, lose their jobs and have difficulties finding a new job, I didn;t want to wait too long to find something else.

I made a number of phone calls with business contacts, and one of those phone calls were to Les Burman of Glunz & Jensen. Too make a long story short he encouraged me to apply, and April 27th started my first day on an install in Winchester Virginia.. The down side to this is I have to relocate to the South Bend Indiana area. I’ve got that more narrowed down to Mishawaka, In.

Currently, as I type this on Memorial Day eve 2009, I’m staying at the Hampton Inn in Mishawaka if I’m not out in the field doing an install.

Prior to the new job thing I did manage to squeeze in a Spring trip with my riding buddies. Ron Bien, Steve & Doug James, and Steve ‘Polecat’ Snead.
