Thursday....

Wow, it's amazing how fast the day flies by when you don't get up until 9...LOL..Last night was a perfect night for sleeping. The first night where we could leave the windows open all night and let the night air in. I slept like a baby.

Today Linda and I tag teamed to get Boomer trimmed up...

See how "youthful" he looks.....

Last night Linda completed the on-line application for a nursing agency she is interested in. It was a very detailed application and it took her quite a while to complete it. Today, while we were working on Boomer, a representative from this company called Linda. After discussing with Linda some more documentation that they would need, they told her about some of the openings they currently have for LPN's. Since our goal is to be in warm weather at this time of year, a job in Alaska was not appealing. Our friend Tom sent us a picture last week that a friend of his had taken in Alaska and it was "frozen" in my mind. It was of a bank thermometer and it read 64 below....Brrrrr....no way we are going to Alaska until it gets much, much warmer. Another job that she told Linda about, that sounds appealing, is one in Lake Charles, LA. She has been assigned a recruiter who will work with her continuously from one assignment to another. The recruiter has to run her references and Linda needs to talk to another person, within the agencies' office, about this particular job. I started researching how long it would take us to get there...campgrounds in Lake Charles...weather and statistics, etc. I'm thinking that Lake Charles is a town we drove through when we went out on one of our exploring jaunts...while staying in Livingston, Texas two years ago. Lake Charles is situated on Rt 10 on the western border of Louisiana...home of gulf shrimp. Yum Yum ! We could be ready to leave, if Linda gets this assignment, around the end of the month. We have friends coming next week and Linda is going to get some tests done at a health fair next week so in about 10 days we could hit the road. We'll keep you posted....

Cool beans! Sounds like a great set-up. What will you do if LB's on a job and a disaster strikes and LS has to go? Much more likely to see you if you're in Lake Charles around 3 March as I'm going to go through Livingston to check Escapees out (I just joined). Hope to see you both!
