<<Y'all will just have to put up with me until I either finally get started on my new position or have to get another job stateside. I really am looking forward to the experience of doing a part for our troops, but I am not in control of getting this thing going.
That's a very generous attitude.
I've actually considered whether anyone would be interested in hiring me for that kind of service. While I'm nearly 55, I walk nine miles/day and am in pretty good shape.
My background is as a gas utility repairman and fitter, and self employed doing furnace repairs the past several years. I'm pretty good at fixing any gas appliances that come wandering down the pike.
And I've supported Bush and the Iraq war as being necessary. If someone were interested in an old fart like me, I'd consider a job.
Anyone have any ideas?
