Time to...?

"It's different now" __ Conway Twitty __ 'Goodbye Time'


Irony rocks.

I've recently learned that, in ~1 year, I'll lose the year-round garage storage (heated in winters) that I've appreciated the last 10+ years. The couple that owns the house, building & property is moving to SC. I will not have the funds needed to buy the place, though I would LOVE to live there. So, since other similar storage options in the area are more expensive, unemployment continues & medical bills are still due ... it's probably time to sell my MCs.

Yep, life is still good. It's just frustrating to watch things for which I've worked hard disappear due to no fault of my own. At least I can still drive & write! Hardly seems fair, but life isn't fair. Things'll work out; they always do...correct?

Dude, that sucks! I'm sorry this has happened, Cort. I hope that something good happens before you are forced to sell your Monte's.

OFFICIAL "FOR SALE" THREAD:
http://www.g3gm.com/t5686-officially-for-sale

Someone noted that this situation IS my fault since, for me, medical procedures/expenses are expected; of course, that person is correct. Still, it's ironic that selling is partly because, less than 3 weeks after returning to full time work following my 11/11/2011 open heart surgery, I found myself out of employment from the company that had a campaign to promote "grill decency"....

The job hunt is not going well, but I've done some personal projects. While I continue to try to get hired, I'm researching volunteer opportunities. I've been applying to customer service, social media, web content editing, & marketing/sales careers.


Selling isn't ALL bad; POSITIVES in EVERY situation, right? In this case, once my MCs are sold ... I won't own a front-wheel-drive nameplate vehicle (until Ch#$r%*et introduces the all-new front-wheel drive Caprice!) ...&... I'll have fewer boards/groups to visit, translating into more time for the remaining boards, driving, writing, etc.! OK, so maybe those aren't complete positives....

BUT...I've had a great run, owning 5 MCs for 9 years & meeting many great people along the way, through road trips, events/gatherings/shows & cruise nights, including the record-breaking 2008 MidSummer Chitown Gathering that I set up. We had 65 people, & it remains the ONLY show/gathering/event that ALL of my MCs attended together! PICS:

All of my cars have special significances to me, so selling is MADDENING; I'm sure I'll shed a tear or more as each leaves for a new home/family.

Wish I could help but have no space other than out in the back 40 and thats no good for cars we dont want. Dont know what you are capable of doing but the company I work for is always looking. They have places in Chicago and surrounding areas. Look on Linde.com. If you see anything let me know you apply and I will do what I can. Smile

Thanks, Anthony. Heh ... wish I could move to TN, the Nashville/Big Sandy/Jackson corridor.

Thank you, but not sure anything anyone can do. Sad

Thank you! I did look ... but didn't see anything I'm really qualified for, unfortunately. Ugh. I did see this...

...and I'd love the travel, but don't have the experience for which they are looking. Sad
