Texas job hunt

It's only 10:30 on Friday morning in Texas, and I already have a job interview set up. We arrived Thursday afternoon to visit my father-in-law for a long weekend, and I mentioned to him that his local newspaper in Killeen may not have a city editor and that I've tried for weeks to get the top editors to call me back. I noticed on their Web site that the city editor position didn't have a contact name or phone, so I assumed they were looking to fill that position. Now they're ready to and Don, my father-in-law, apparently used some Rotary connections to get me an interview today.

Luckily, I have my resume and clips on our new laptop computer, and I also have them on a portable disk drive that I brought along. So they're all printed and ready to go. Unfortunately, I didn't bring interview clothes, just jeans and shorts, so it looks like I'll be in shorts.

I'll update later on how it went. Go Texas!
