Last night Renee, The McGee's and myself went to an auction that is right by the office. I have found my gambling addiction here, forget the slots(which I have only played maybe 10 times in my lifetime)and let me bid. As I was sitting there summer time memories from my Grandparents in IN came flooding back. At least once every summer we went to the auction. Where there was everything from live stock to the kitchen sink. I thought that is was so neat to watch everyone bidding on things and looking at their treasures. I did get a few treasures last night. I have been needing a card table for years and was to tight to buy one for 30 or 40 bucks. Patience did pay off last night. I got a great one for 5 bucks. Then I got about 4 things for 2 bucks a piece. Things I have been wanting. It was a lot fun to spend time with good friends and finding treasures all at the same time. I always thought that my Grandparents and Great Aunt had such cool stuff and loved to hear how that they go it so cheap. I just knew that they were rich. Well they all told me to shop wisely and go to estate sales, yard sales and auctions. Well, I will gladly carry on the traditions and have been for years.

As you see this one is in Memory of my Aunt Carol. Who lost her battle to cancer about 2 year ago. She was one of the most giving people I have ever known. She had a very strong FAITH in God and lived her lfe in away fitting to him. I am glad to know that she is now up in Heaven watching over me.

This is the scene I will be looking at tomorrow at around 10:15am Portland time. I have really been looking forward to this business trip. I have been dealing with some of the people at DST and Johnstone Corp headquarters for years and never had the chance to put names and faces together. Even though I have never met them person to person I consider them friends. I will be having training on Thursday and Friday which is also something I am looking forward to. Since I always love learning something new and challenging. I hear from a reliable source(Roxi) that the air in Portland is sweet and I have been instructed to breath all the good air I can. So I am not sure when I will post again, but will share all that happens here in the next few weeks.
The mail has finally arrived at 4:00 pm, that is usually here at 9:00 am, so better get the deposit done and mail sorted so I can get out of here and go home and pack. 4 am will be here soon.
