It has been a while since I have posted because I have been busy! Thank God! Work is going great. I got in with this company at the perfect time - they are expanding from a regional company into a national, full service security company. They hired on some FBI and Secret Service executives and are plugging me into a lot of the operations and financial meetings. Hard to believe I have over 25 years experience but it is about to start paying off. I have been doing a lot of traveling to Chicago and NYC but I don't mind.
Speaking of 25 years of experience, a couple of weeks ago, Lucie and I went back to Maine for my 30 year high school reunion. I am happy to report that I was not the fattest, baldest, or oldest looking so I may push my luck and go back again next year. We had a great time seeing some "old" friends and faces. Someone brought a yearbook so I was able to show Lucie some before and afters of the people. Only about 25% of the class showed up but hopefully word will spread and more will come next time. My junior prom date was there and she gave me a big hug so either that night wasn't as bad as I remembered it for her or she suppressed the memory... Although we were only up and back the same weekend, we had a good time visiting those friends, my younger brother and my mother. (Took the Acura up and we made near record time!)
One more quick story - my mother came down to Amish country near us about a week or two ago with a church bus tour group. So Lucie, Elliott and I drove over to see her and have dinner at the Amish restaurant they were eating at. We had a nice visit and ran into my old youth pastor and his wife. They hadn't changed all that much but I bet they felt ancient after seeing me. The group only had time to eat for about an hour before they were off to the huge Sight and Sound show. We had an issue with the restaurant - they charged us the group rate (because we ate with the group) which, oddly enough, is more than the regular rate! - but overall it was a good time.
