HOUSTON WE HAVE A

2nd Man has a new job and starts Monday!



He's been through a few rounds of interviews and a few days ago they made him an offer and he accepted it.  We were just waiting to make sure all progressed as it should and yesterday they said to come by Monday to sign papers and get all the info to get started.  He will get more details then but the company is still primarily working from home and his team will all be working remotely for a while as well.  

We're not sure if there will be a once a week in the office or maybe once a month but they have already sent a laptop to him and webcam and we've gotten him a new large monitor and set up a home office for him.

We're grateful.  It's been a long, tough road but we kept our hopes up even in these dark times.  This is a great opportunity with full benefits.


Thanks to everyone for sending good vibes and well wishes!  Keep them coming for continued success.  Hopefully in a couple of months we can get back to planning for the future at the farm.
