So Ralph was offered a job a couple of days ago. It's with the SBA (Small Business Administration). That's good news, but the bad news is that it's an on call job, not a regular, full time job and no benefits. He'll go for training and then he'll be called when they need him. His job will be going to places around the country where there have been emergencies, like the Santa Barbara fire, for example, and then assessing the damage done and estimating the cost to repair.
So basically, the only time he'll be working, is when someone else has had pretty bad luck and their business has been destroyed or partially destroyed. Sheesh, is that bad karma or what?
Oh, and he was contacted by another contractor about doing a job for the Navy.....they are still in negotiation but they wondered if he was interested. Oh, yeah, the job is in Africa! And I though Ralph working in Alaska was far away. I swear, God must be laughing at me.
