Changes and a smart little Ranger

Have you ever had a plan then, that plan changes course? That how my life has been going lately. Fer instance, we had picked out a really nice slate to tile the kitchen with. It's been sitting in the family room for two months waiting it's turn. I'm all prepped to install the stuff when Cherry Pie says she doesn't like it, it detracts from the back splash that she wants as the focal point, it doesn't match the cabinets,blah, blah, blah. Next example, I'm working on this small apartment that I am going to manage. The owner shows up with cash and is willing to help. I'm working on a bathroom. He wants to make the place nice as possible but on the cheap. Later that night one of the neighbors comes over, drunk. And makes suggestions as to the bathroom. All valid points but, it added 300 bucks to the budget and set us hours behind with a carpet crew breathing down my neck. Moving on, I got a call from a friend, asking if I had a job yet as his little office had an opening for a seasonal employee. 2 months work. I'll take it. I filled out the application they gave me and submitted it. I started work two day later. Midday I was told they had given me the wrong application so technically I wasn't hired yet. So I filled out the new app and went home to wait. Now, here comes the good part of change, this morning I got a call from the HR director of the home office. He is the past HR director from one of my previous employers. They have a full time position available, would I be interested? Hell, yeah I'm interested. I sped a resume to him and sit here, fingers crossed, wondering, is this the one?

I finally got the Ranger .22 rifle done. I gotta say, it sure came out nice, probably nice than it ever was as new. The owner was flabbergasted. The stock is smooth as a freshly shaven... well never mind, it's really smooth. All the steel is re-blued including all the bits and pieces and the screws. A new rear sight elevator and this little jewel is back in shooting trim.
