Good Evening To All

Again I have not been posting much recently. A quick refresher. Back this summer I took a management position: http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=19633649

Well it met all that the position promised. More work, more stress and more hours for VERY little extra pay. For that in front of you all, I hold my head in shame. Very very Anti - MOTFL!

Fast forward to today. I am sitting at my computer while I enjoy a two week break!

Background: Well about two weeks after taking the management position I get a call from a friend who used to be my manager (I filled her position when she left) to let me know that the very large airplane maker that she is working for is hiring a new position! This happens to be the same airplane maker my dad worked for, for twenty years!

The Skinny: The new job is a eight hour a day job, great bennies, more pay, more holidays and vacation and a lot less stress. It is still in the imporation business but as an internal auditor. Very cool gig. So I go for it.

Well after 185 applicants I get the call for the second interview. Believe it or not (I still don't!) I got the job. I start in a week and half. Took a two week break between jobs, something I have never done before (read: Very MOTFL!)

Conclusion: I am not one to take chances but did. I am not one to dream, I am pretty planted on earth, but tried it. And you know what?
It worked!

Thought I would share.

Gary
