Fingers Crossed

In the past two weeks, I tried to stay inside as much as possible, due to the high heat in St. Louis lately. Temperatures regularly topped 90 degrees F, with heat indices reaching 110 degrees F. It's cooled down lately.
I had an interview on Thu., 5 Aug. with a book and magazine publisher for an editor position there. It went well and I hope to hear back within the next two weeks to see if I am a finalist for this job, and would have an interview with the president/publisher of the firm. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Meanwhile, I started a temporary part-time job on Sun., 8 Aug. as a paid political canvasser for a local candidate. I'll be out two weeknights and one weekend day going door-to-door talking with likely voters and promoting the candidate. It's quite a big of leg work (no pun intended), and not easy when it's real hot and muggy out, but I like this work. Plus, I'll get a bit of money out of this to help me carry on until I land with a full time job.
Fall soccer season is starting soon, and I'll have games to work this Sunday. I worked the men's league last Sunday and those games were fine.
IPMS Gateway meeting is tonight, and I'll be running that. Our Invitational contest and swap meet is just under one month away (Sat., 11 September). Looking forward to it. I got our show mentioned on a few local community calendar web sites and a couple of scale modeling sites as well.
Take care & talk to you soon.
