You Get Two Guesses...

I just retired for the second time this year.  My contract work was more intense than I thought it would be, but it was very satisfying.  The new District Forester at Fairfield is up and running.  I think she will do great things in the years ahead.  Mel Gerardo was the first DF at Fairfield.  He was a Marine vet, and he fought at the Chosin Resorvoir.  I have eternal respect for him.  He left Fairfield to run the state nursery at Anna-Jonesboro, and he was superb in that job.  Rick Moore was the second DF; then Gary Stratton, who was my boss while I worked at Fairfield.  Jenny Lesko is the new District Forester, and she has a solid foundation with her education at Notre Dame and Purdue.  I think she will do great things in District 19, Fairfield, Illinois.

Anyhow, which of these do you think fits my mood tonight?

Yep, I feel good! Bobby's song is a downer, and it is great to be permanently unemployed!
