HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLE PORTER
Today would have been Cole Porter's 97th birthday. What an amazing composer! What a brilliant lyricist! I can only hope he is entertaining the angels tonight. My job search goes on. This is is the first time I have been out of work in twelve years and I am applying everywhere through Career Builder.com on the Internet-- which is quite good, but the responses are very slow in coming. But I have turned this over to the Lord and I need to trust Him completely. Of course I am still hoping that Ritz will find something for me to go on to. Having a store closed is not exactly the most joyful situation of my life. Our little store was doing very well. Unfortunately, "the sharp pencil boys" of Ritz see only pedantic low figures in January and February of this year. We had a terrible writer's strike and gas continues to go up. In California, gas is up to $4.35 a gallon for basic gas. Crazy! Everyone please say a prayer for me! This is one of the toughest moments of my life!
