This year has been a bit taxing for my siblings in the job department. My sister used to work for David Weekly Homes in their design center. That company is pretty much non-existent in SW Florida as of now. She’s not been able to find solid, stable employment in her area until………..probably tomorrow. This company will be throwing her an offer that I’m sure she won’t be able to refuse. All I know is this. If and when she ends up showing furniture in Milan or Paris, she must take me! It seems this company sells high dollar furnishings and they’ve not yet been hit by the economic crunch. Amazing. I wish her all the luck in the world.
My brother (seen in the red Yakima hat on the left) has had a series of cool jobs managing bike stores for stints of two to three years at a time. After his visit here over Thanksgiving, he returned home to find that he no longer had a job. He’s not married, he doesn’t own a home and has no children. It’s a bit easier for him to be unstable than those of us with mortgages and families. Luckily for him he just landed a new job as a rep for Yakima. The poor guy just returned from Portland, OR and Sacramento, CA. They’ve provided him with a company car, a blackberry and a pretty cool itenerary.
Hopefully, our town will be on his route to somewhere as his territory is pretty darn big!
