Well, crap

Been out of touch because I've been running crazed last week.

First we weren't going to Pennsic because Bob was unemployed.

Then maybe we could go to Pennsic, because Bob had a contract - he just needed to check if he could have the time.

Then we were going to Pennsic - WOOHOO!  Wait - I have to compress my usual two months of prep and packing into sixteen DAYS!  Holy expletives deleted Batman!  Sew!  Sew like the wind!

Now - we're not sure if we're going to Pennsic.  Saturday the agency called and told Bob that the contract was canceled.

So.  Back at it.  Think good employment thoughts for us.  And as always, if anyone has any suggestions/contacts please let us know.

Shit--that sucks on many levels. We will certainly send positive thoughts your direction, and hope things get better.

Yes, yes it does. Coming out of nowhere was a particular punch in the gut. But he's home pounding the electrons, so hopefully something will come of it.

On the bright side, we had two, count them two invites to picnics this weekend, so we were able to go lick our wounds in the company of friends. That always helps.

Ouch, that's just stand you up to knock you down. I hope Bob finds something soon. Pennsic has been off and on for me as well. At the moment it looks like I'll drive two days to spend three days. Still it will be Pennsic and I'll get to see at least a few friends. Hopefully I'll even get out in your area before I go back to my full time civilian job and be able to visit.

No kidding. We're not dealing with nearly the issues that you are right now, but it still knocks the wind out of you.

I'm also operating on the idea that a little bit of Pennsic is better than none. In our case it'll probably be two days of driving for four days on the ground. But still... When will you be there?

Well... frak, yes. :(
That really blows big wind turbines...

Sorry it didn't work out with Goodrich, and I'll flip through the customer contact list we have here at work to see who we know who's close to you guys. There's got to be a bunch besides Goodrich and ESPN.
