Spell checked for ya Nessie....

Jerry is the kind of guy who isn't happy unless he's busy.

As yall know he's ran out of things to do at the house..and the weedeating was OK but there's just not enough of it In our neck of the woods.

So I got the.local traders guide ...I'm always looking for free chickens and when I collect a.load I'll take em.to.the auction..

Anyway I was looking in the back in the miscellaneous ads and there it was...

A large farming lllc looking for help.

Fencing..haying..they got 100 plus mama cows and calves...heifers..some yearlings..everything Jerry is intimately familiar with after working the ranch in wyoming.

So I called em and told them about Jerry's...his retiring and not having enough to do.

She called him that evening and yesterday he went for his interview at 10 and ended up staying and working all day.

They had it advertised at 15 an hr..more based on experience.

He'll be working based on a 40 he week..but we all know farming is a 24/7 job so I'm sure he'll be working alot of overtime.

They asked him what he wanted an hour an he.told them.i.said he always undervalued himself. He told them.a price at time and a half what they had in the paper and they didn't even blink an eye.

Thet had said they couldn't get anyone to work...I told the lady Jerry did the work of 3 guys..and he does.

Turns out they have 4 farms right along the river..beaver access and lots of coyotes that need catching to protect the calves and fawns.

They also have an oil and gas company

When he came home he was .so happy..it was good to see.

He'd orignally said 3 days a week but said once he started thinking about it he could work the 5 days a week and have money to put in the bank and go trapping..without touching his savings.(which I knew would happen.
Lol)

It's nice to see him excited and now he's not so worried about things because he can definitely keep things going without going into savings.

He was so happy he came home and told me.i could quit woking..he was making enough to take care of us.

I told him No WAY..I liked making my own money.

He didn't like it when he wasn't working and I was working and gave him money..lol..he said that wasn't the way things should be.

I knew a few weeks of that would be a he could stand.lol

He's doing the same.work he was doing in wyoming..he's 45 minutes from home..and home.every night for supper.

I'm excited.for him.and us

And the BEST thing about the job..aside from his peace of mind is,.........

II GET MY GARDEN BACK!!!!!!

WOOHOO


We re living our best life here in WV

Thanks be to God.


Were.truly Blessed.

He's 55. And he's happy. He needs to be working. He's not a loafing around kinda guy and now he can justify going to wyoming to trap marten..even with gas the way it is.

He has a standing order for his marten so he's double happy.


He moved round bales to the barn all day yesterday. He didn't get overworked.

He actually said they could use me to drive a tractor any day I was off and wanted to work.

God does provide

Cathryn, it is good to hear and you are so right God does provide way more than we deserve if we are willing to go after, he feeds the sparrows but they have to pick it up he doesn't put it in their mouth, obviously you realize that, it is a shame so many don't in today's culture.

It’s not washing windows at the playboy mansion but it sounds like a sweet deal with land access benefit.

And just so everyone knows...Jerry is the capable of finding his own job but he just ain't a people person like I am and I'll talk to anyone once...so he Leaves the wheeling and dealing parts of things to me.

He knows I got his best and our best interest at heart.

I just found.out from a buddy of mine that worked for the USDA that the USDA used to do their coyote work

I say used to... cause I sewed that up for him too...before I even m new they had the USDA in their

He'll get paid as a farm.manager them come fall he'll get paid to trap coyotes on top of that.

I told them.hr did 3 men's jobs in wyoming and he did.

One of them just happened to be a coyote trapper..

Jerry is happy and easier to deal with when he's happy and he deserves to be happy. He's earned that right through years of hard work.

He doesn't like feeling like he isn't providing which he is and always has.


It took me a litttle while to realize how lucky I am and to stop trying to be 100% independent.

Neither one of us wants to depend on anyone but ourselves.

It takes a while to understand you can count on someone

Poor old Jerry! He was only retired two days before his wife got on his butt for being in her garden! And then! Got on him for wearing long sleeve’s!! So, she found him a job on a cattle farm! I guess the dynamite factory and the alligator farm was not hiring! Hay Jerry, you might want to go check on your life insurance! Aka Cathy, might have upped it!! grin
