    My wife (a writer) was told 3 weeks ago that her division of publications was bought out by another publishing company and she would be laid off.

    The catch was that the new company would be back the next day to begin talking to them about their ideas and the potential for working in their company.

    Turned out she was re-hired by the new company at the same salary, much better benefits, double the vacation days, was given the option to work at home in a home office they would furnish (desk, computer, phone line, fax, etc.) which was surprising since we figured she would have to quit if she wouldn't move to the California-based publisher.

    So she was laid off, got 2 weeks severance, vacation pay, started working for the new company right away, at home, and it's a better and more famous publisher with way better perks and benefits.

    Getting laid off was her lucky day, it turned out.

    Hope it works out half as well for your wife.

    Thanks PT. I'm confident she'll find something pretty quick, although now they are talking like there's a slight possibility that they could reorganize her into another department thats safe....So who knows. Guess we'll take it day by day.

    It would have to have some solid supports if I let you go with my bouncing booby girl.

    You could both come crashing down.

    I hate it when that happens.

    What am I thinking of? I went fishin off Florida once and there was one fish that they slammed on the side of the boat to kill and get it off the line w/o touching. Something about being toxic....I thought it was dog-fish.


    But then, I'm a dorkfish.

    Why do all the good things in life have to happen all at once in the fall?

    Weather . . . deer hunting . . . duck/goose hunting . . . college football . . . NFL football . . . the anniversary of my birth . . . leaves turning colors.

    That's just off the top of my head. You'd think they'd spread it out some. Jeez.

    Exactly. The Holidays should fall in Jan/February and it work work a lot better for me.

    It's like there is nothing, nothing , nothing nothing..EVERYTHING... next thing you know you are spit out in February not knowing what hit you.

    Which is fine as long as I have deer at the taxidermist from the season. Last years should be done soon.

    Have a great weekend.

    Thanks. This year I'm hunting Indiana, Wisconisn (Buffalo County) and Kansas (Unit 16) so I 'll be disappointed if at least one monster doesn't hit the ground.

    I haven't been seeing the quality deer this year that I saw last here here at home but there is a 9 pointer I'd like to kill even if he doesn't score.

    I'd like to have 2 at the taxidermist from the Wisconsin and Kansas hunts but we'll see what happens.

    I'll post a pic of last years Iowa buck if I can figure out how to do it.

    I didn't see much. Unless you count legions of boone and crocket mosquitos.

    Early season you hunt food sources. I think deer hit my beans in the middle of the night.

    Sitting hours in a treestand I have a lot of time to think.

    Most of us have one of these truck/car key auto lock/unlock buttons with some sort of panic button for the alarm.

    I hate these things because I set it off accidently just having it in my pocket.

    Why couldn't there be a sliding panel that covers the panic button so it can't be accidently pressed but easily opened so that one can shut the alarm off if need be.

    Pretty simple but I think that's a great idea. I'd even spend money for an aftermarket case that I could snap around Fords case that would allow me this funtionality. There's a free idea.

    watch it.....Ford may steal the idea. NO NO NO!! NO free ideas...make em PAY!!

    According to the movie they offered the inventor of intermittent wipers $30M...yours should be worth at least 500K.

    An incompetent bank agent is doing his upmost to screw my deal.

    I was told to come here and seek life advice from the "experts."

    I would have posted sooner, but it was hard for me to figure out how to compose a post without a number in it.
