Got a new lab position on a tasty research grant.

Oh yeah, and got a new "used" car. :lol:

Great news, gen!!! I haven't had a new position in 30 years and have had the same car for half that time!! Uh-oh, this was supposed to be for good news - well, think of all the money I saved not getting new cars!!

She must be one Hell of a woman to put up with you. You'd better hang on to her, Pal.

:lol: i just was looking up the old jobs of my parents (psa / usair / usairways)...

the psa flight attendant uniforms still aren't getting old. especially the orange ruffly bloomer shorts that i once tried on. these stewardess uniforms have to be the most hysterical professional uniforms ever (think very, very short minis, red knee-high boots, and a lot of neon orange and pink). :shock:

my mom's on the aug. 1974 issue of their magazine. she hates it because they made her wear sports clothes instead of a glamorous cover, because other flight attendants were jealous of her. she got picked for the world trip back in the 70s as well.
