The Shoe Dropped

It is a tough time in the housing industry and yesterday, we announced a big consolidation with our factories.  Many people lost their jobs and our customers are concerned.  Fortunately, I am still employed but have to focus on work pretty heavily to manage through the transition.

I did manage to get in a good ride last weekend with an old college friend.  And I have a longer city-ride this weekend.

Stay well, everyone.

Big Clyde

Sorry to hear this Clyde! Hang in there!

The economy still struggles and so it goes for all of us as a result.

I find that being able to work out helps deal with the stress though.

Glad you still have a job. Keep on going!

You are in my prayers.

I am happy for you, but feel sad for those who lost their jobs.

Keep your chin up Clyde!

Clyde, my thoughts are with you. These are tough, tough times. I'm glad you have a job, but I know it's hard when you pick up the slack for lost colleagues and still worry about your job. Very best wishes to you.

Glad you got out for a good ride with an old friend. Yesterday, I went on a ride with a bunch of young kids who are learning to ride. I'll write about that later.

These are hard times for construction. My son is in it and was out of work two days last week and one day (so far) this week. Stay strong!
