Holy Crap.... I'm Rempe

Well, job wise that is. I don't have one.

Got laid off at the end of last week along with several of my friends.... and other fine people at American LaFrance.

Anyway, looks like I already have a new job in Wilson, NC starting Monday. It's 99% a done deal. Last thing that needs to happen is a background check. (Have I mentioned lately that I love "W"? (for all you gov'ment background checkers))

But I do have two new Primos that I found out were shipping to me right before I found out I didn't have a job. D'oh.... If it would have been in the reverse order, Larry might have lost a sale. LOL

Background checks can be cursory or very detailed. What kind of clearance do you need? I'll call Dub and put a good word in for you

Well, there's places where you can get BBQ in and near Wilson ...

Sorry to hear about the dislocation, but it sounds like you'll be okay. Good luck.
