1st day done...

Well the 1st day of orientation is over and Irene and I are very impressed with Conway. They are very organized and everyone is very professional. They really like the husband/wife team thing so I feel we were special to them. We passed all our test and DOT physical and I passed the fitness test...but someone else (Irene) didn't quite cut it...something about her heart rate got to high...guess I have to whip her into shape I guess. She was fine though b/c this fitness test is something new they are experimenting with and it doesn't count towards employment. It will someday but not today.

We have moved now to Neosho, MO where we will attend Crowder Comm. College for Conway's "boot camp" for one week. I am in paradise here...we are staying at the Booneslick Lodge and from the moment we pulled up I knew I was home. There was a deer antler light hanging on the front porch, walked in the door... pine log furniture, walls done in tongue and groove pine...what a man's paradise! Even better was a billboard ad of a store on the way over, it was called the Outdoor Enthusiast...on it was a picture of a riding mower,chainsaw,shotgun, and handgun...talk about getting your testosterone level up...argh, argh, argh!!

Well enough for now...big day tomorrow...stay tuned!
