Default i no longer have a dad

close to home......

scared ya?? sorry...

my mechanic dad got a new job, paying double....120 miles away....

he has gone from a ford dealership, to self employed, to the shop he was at for 12 years, being head mechanic and service manager...that place was slowly going out of business while he was there, so he got out ASAP... found a new job in heron lake, mn, and worked there for like 4 weeks, the place we did the motor swap on the 00....things did not work out with that boss...so he found another offer......in brookings, SD....its called brookings automall, a HUGE GM dealership

kinda sad, but im VERY happy for him...

if this job works out, my family will be moving as soon as my bro graduates this year...

in the mean time, he will be traveling on the weekends and staying in a one bedroom basement on the weekdays, just like college...

this means my mom is taking over the house, and i no longer have a SHOP!!!!

sucks bad...

ill give him a while there, and if they actaully do move, i will be looking for a job prolly in sioux falls, SD....

wish my family luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously though, I hope things work out for you and your family!! Congrats on the new super paying job.

I don't see what the big deal is about it. You merely need to use my puller to get the new pulley on..and learn to dodge cops better.

Good luck to all of you! Will he be transferring immediately? or after the Christmas holidays.?
