I think I posted a while ago that husband was interviewed for an episode of "The Takeaway" on NPR. They actually have had him on either 2 or 3 times now. They like him because even though he has been out of work for over a year he still has a great attitude and is upbeat for the most part. Last time he suggested that he would be great as a regular or semi-regular on the show. He got an email today saying that they want to talk to him on Friday again AND have decided that they want him to be a regular on the show!!! While I don't think they will pay him, it is still GREAT exposure and handy networking and will look great on a resume!!! So for any of you who listen to NPR regularly, you just might get to hear from my husband!! If you want his name, PM me. I don't know what time it is on - I think it changes based on where you are. I am SO PROUD of him - he worked himself into this all on his own!! He also does a LOT of work for the univ athletic dept through a temp agency. The head of the univ athletics is having a banquet and asked if the agency had anyone they wanted to honor - and they picked husband!! He is always upbeat (even after 15 hours of dealing with rowdy and/or drunk football fans!!) and is willing to do whatever is needed. I bet husband's next interview will have a referral from the coach - and he is a BIG DEAL around here - truly one of the most influential men in town and in the entire state! It has been a really tough year for us, and esp for husband. He just never lets it get him too down and finds a way to enjoy almost everything - even time spent dealing with people who don't respect boundaries!! It is really nice to hear others recognize how great he is !!!
