Re: News

I gave that (the collar idea) a lot of thought. I did get Alphonse a collar, but it's black with reflective silver trim. He is a long-haired kitty -- white with black spots and a huge black tail. He sometimes lays on the checkstand and plays with the customers while they are attemptingn to take merchandise out of their baskets. We have had only one complaint since the cats moved in last fall.

Congrats!  That's wonderful about the promotion.
The HD near my house is closing, but we have another across town.

Great about the cats.  Do they wear orange collars?

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.
