with a local newspaper that covers 16 towns. I had my interview and was hired in the same day.
To get my settled, and to figure out which area I want to live in, I am staying at a bed and breakfast, which is run by a family friend. This family friend and I spent the past hour talking with a couple from Michigan. They’re staying at the bed and breakfast on their way up to Augusta to see the state capital. One of the things on their bucket list is to see all 50 state capitals. They’re doing ten - most of the east coast - this trip.
The couple had gone out to supper, and Chris and I were in the kitchen talking. The couple, instead of ignoring us, comes and joins us, even giving us some of their own beer. We all talk for close to two hours. They are from Michigan
They toasted the start of my new job and were so excited for me. We tried naming the state capitals, and the first 5 presidents. We talked about some “guest” stories Chris had from the Inn. After close to two hours, they said they were going to watch a football game, but invited me to join them for breakfast tomorrow before my first day of work.
Last night, the guest was from Washington state, and he currently lives in Montreal. He is an Aerospace Engineer, and was in town visiting family.
I’m so excited to see who else comes to stay.
