Got a call from my old employer's wife and she told me they were busy cutting grass around the store and cleaning up. They have finally retired and it is mainly due to her husband not being in good health. She said she just couldn't handle everything by herself. They were really great to work for and I missed the morning coffee with all the old guys who would come into the hardware store every morning and have coffee before opening time. All of those old guys are dead now and the first time I ever was at their store was about 25 years ago, I was working for a local farmer near their store and he had an account so I would often go and grab something he needed. I never dreamed I would one day work there but I did 13 years ago. I loved working for them and that's half the battle with any job, if you like the people and what you do then work is easy. I miss those lunch time dinners from the nearby sugar mill and one other small business on a little cove near the hardware store. I hope to try and go visit them some day soon and not wait too long to do it. So it is thundering again and round two of rain storms is starting.
