Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
Well dh got a most unexpected call yesterday. The county road commission offered him a position as weighmaster for the county. They'd already called his former department, plus the road commission in that county, and got glowing recommendations from his having done a similar job there...without his even knowing it! Now that's the kind of job you'd like to have, where they come asking you to do it! He really loved motor carrier enforcement when he did it before. Having been a truck driver before he was a police officer, he both understands the rigors of the job, and also knows every excuse in the book that they might try to use on him, LOL. Anyway, he has a meeting today to talk it over and see what they're offering and what they want from him. This would be in addition to the job he already has, though he would probably do some hours juggling. We'll see. Being a county position, I'm sure they'll pay him more than the greedy little town where he works for a pittance now!
The kiddos have ceramics this morning, and then I'm guessing ds and poppa will finish rebuilding the syrup fireplace. It ended up being a good sap day yesterday...despite what the weather forecasters predicted for the day...so they have 30+ gallons to cook at some point. The ice still hasn't gone out of the river, though the level has dropped quite a bit and the ice dam doesn't look so much like a dam anymore because it lowered with the river. Very interesting jams...there are three of them that we know of, close to our house. Usually when the ice goes out, it's gone. Getting stuck like this...and staying for so many days "after the ice went out"...is unique.
