Week one.

Well this is week one. The first week of being on first shift along with the first week of book sales. Still not quite sure how either one happened but I’ll take it!

The dogs are in the habit of getting up around 2:00 A. M. to be let outside. It’s what they have been used to for the last year. Unfortunately I am not used to sleeping in the middle of the night so we are all in for some sleep adjustment.

At work I am now surrounded by mostly 19 and 20 year olds in their first real job. My boots have more work experience than these kids. But, despite their youth, they work hard and seem to be open to learning. Nothing wrong with that. Speaking of learning it is going to take some time to figure out my new surroundings. At least the parts I now weld are simple enough to figure out. If I could just find the break room and the restrooms my work life would be more comfortable…

As for the book, the sales report looks like a snail on a mission. Not at the 101 sales mark but I am very optimistic about reaching that goal… some day. This will be the last post about this book until the sales goal is reached.

Here are five reasons to not buy this book;

  1. It has no literary value.
  2. It was written and published by an amateur.
  3. It has the word “farts” in the title.
  4. It will make you laugh and that would be undignified.
  5. It is full of one-liners and such that I posted on Facebook over the years and you never had to pay for that.

It’s also the same five reasons to buy this book.

By the way a huge thank you to those of you that have purchased a copy!

I also thank God for the end of a difficult life season. There are several lessons learned along the way and I look forward to sharing them with you in future posts. Enjoy the weekend everybody!
