That's wonderful! I was without a job for a short while and it wore on me
everyday. I was so thrilled when I finally got a job! Good luck Joe.

Good onya Big Fella, hope all goes well and it frees up some money to do more bag shopping. We've been a little shy on reviews lately. Cheers, Alan

I today got my first pay check for a new job I just started, so I know how you feel.
Enjoy, and remember, a new job means a new area to photograph in your lunch break.
