I'm a Funeral Services graduate embarking on a new career. I graduated high school in 1981, served honorably in the United States Navy from 1982-1986, been married since 1986, and have one son. I've relocated to a new state and have begun working in my chosen profession of Funeral Services, and I've never been happier.

Running Out Of Gas

I see it's been over a month since my last post, and I do apologize. I'm afraid I seem to be running out of material. This blog was started as a record of my transition from retail to funeral directing, and it seems to have filled that purpose. I'm not closing it down or anything, but my posts may not be as frequent as they once were, as you can tell from this 6 week gap.
To bring you up to speed, my boss continues to work toward getting his own place up and running. He's filling out all the paperwork and getting all the necessary inspections and licensing. I would say that by the end of this year he should be fully out on his own. There might be a transition period where we help him out on funerals and with removals, but I'm hoping that will be over by New Year's.
The owner of the funeral home bought a new hearse. He sent in a down payment this week. I'm not sure when we'll take delivery, or how. He said we might have to go to the factory to pick it up. I'll volunteer for a road trip, no problem. A couple of days on the road, with nothing but my tunes for company. It would be like a paid vacation.
On an ironic note, I went on a call the other night. While in the middle of the removal someone's cell phone (not mine, for the record) rings, and the ringtone is "Don't Fear the Reaper."
