WOO! new job :)

I accepted a new job today with a different company working on more caterpillar stuff (everything around here is related to Cat)

big raise

going to put some towards the house remodeling i'm trying to finish and retirement of course.....

but i'm also going to setup a dedicated cash Jeep fund so i don't get temped to buy things for my jeeps on credit like i did with my TJ.

its going to be pretty nice not having to try to budget my jeeps into my other expenses since it will have a dedicated side account


the welder i want is finally in my sights again


just thought i'd share the good news

Congratulations Greg. I'm glad to see things moving forward for you.

But, like I tried to teach my boys: Your pockets will jingle, when you're single!!

Great news , glad to hear someone actually got a bit ahead in today's fouled up society . Cat's outsourcing is growing , hopefully they are jobs that actually last .

What welder?
I bought a Miller 200DX this last winter with the income tax return , best d*** money ever spent ....

I like to hear good news. it seems to pick me up.
I need a raise too, but I'll probably retire first.

It's not what you have. It's what you do with what you have
