    Picked up 3 new pairs of Levis 514s and some polo shirts. I will get more polo shirts. I already love the job and can't wait to start next Tuesday.

    I'll be Area manager for a company called ResCare, overseeing 4 homes for physically and developmentally disabled persons. Each home has 4 staff and a site supervisor. It's a 60% increase over my current job which is a bonus obviously. I'm anxious to get started next Tuesday.

    I went with a regular suit and tie once I read the tux was optional.

    I wish you well in an absolutely essential field of service.

    In one of my past jobs I worked with a number of organizations that housed emotional/behavioral and developmentally challenged residents that attended the high school where I was principal. In my state the bureaucracy consisting of the courts, social services, and company management made for some interesting challenges.

    Outstanding Lonn, I’m sure you are deserving of the chance, and will have great things to give to, and receive of this position. And enjoy being fashionably comfortable in those polo shirts, that’s my work uniform most days too.
