This is in health/wellness because it makes me feel so much better to be able to work again...God has certainly showered me with blessings to get this job just when my unemployment runs out...thank you all for your prayers...ED

Did ya ever have a new job that felt kind of hinky,

No Pee-wee, thats hinky, not kinky or stinky,

And to answer your next question I showered, okay,

So as not to give you the satisfaction of hearing from the job that I was stinky...


Anyway, something did not feel right,

So herein about the position I do write,

It is a WAY EASY job, but keeping drivers they can't do,

Kitchen staff they keep, as one lady has been there 3 years,

So hopefully this I will be able to keep, alleviating all my inner fears...


I really enjoyed being "on the road again,"

It gave this feeling that I've not had of being most Zen,

I had to use my own car for today, they paid me for gas with a ten,

As I didn't use much in my 100 mile or 4 hour day,

Even if I did have to absorb the cost, I had a great deal of fun,

Though for one stop, that didn't seem to exist,

I did find stress, but that is and always has been my way...

Omg, Ed, since I first saw these advertised on the Internet, I've wanted/coveted one! Knowing, where I live, it would take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours to deliver it, always dampened my 'too cool' mood... But, now, there you are! Too cool!

Hugs and happiness to you.

Sir, this makes my heart glad…I am pleased to see that you give credit where credit is due. Trust me when I tell you that there is no such thing as coincidence. All things both good and bad happen for a reason and they all have their season. You have seen your trials as have I…Even now in the midst of my turmoil I rejoice with you….PS: Your KJV DVD is on its way…Peace be unto you brother.
