Re: News

Great news, Zem.  Best wishes in your new position.  It figures that
you of all people would have cats working for you.

My good friend and sometimes supervisor at The Home Depot has been transferred
to Lompoc, CA.  Actually, her husband has been transferred, and she is going
with him.  The result is that I will be the new livegoods manager for the
store.  I know from experience that the paperwork part of the job will only
involve following a predetermined protocol.  The really fun part is working
with all those plants and the customers who come to buy them.  For the past
two years we have gotten all our annuals from a Tennessee grower, and this
year a lot of them were grown at the greenhouses of my good friend, and former
employer, here in LaGrange.  In fact, I met Lynda Young at Sunnycreek.  It's
owner is also the regional salesmanager for Pope's, which is in Merryville,
TN.  I know my new position will be a good fit because I already know all the
vendors, and I've met the growers, too.  I'm looking forward to having a very
good time.  I think I told you all about the cats that had come to live at the
HD garden center.  Well, one in particular has become a real celebrity.  He
greets all our customers, and they have donated lots of food.  Everybody at
the store likes the cats, and the employees donated enough money to get the
male neutered .  This Wednesday the little female, who was a lot shyer, and
harder to tame, than her littermate, is getting spayed thanks to more employee
contributions.  The Animal Protection Association in Memphis only charged $40
to neuter Alphonse and give him his basic shots.  Hermione will only cost $45.
I am very grateful.  The cats saved the store several thousand dollars in
mouse and bird damage over the winter.
