Good Times at the Gerlt House

The interview went well. Kevin Hickey asked Erin about as many questions as he asked me, and they were all about who we are and how we got interested in Chick-fil-A. He brought up the store opening at the Hulen Mall in Ft. Worth and said they want to fill that store soon. They want the new operator for that store to take the July operator class, which starts around the 23rd and goes to August 29th (Dustin and Jamie's wedding is July 22, and Jake is due September 1). It I don't get the Hulen Mall it could be quite some time before another one in this area comes available, so obviously we're hopeing and praying that I will somehow get that store. Kevin told us to be expecting a call from him sometime between Friday the 26th and next Friday June 2nd.

Thought I would post some pictures of out trip to Missouri. My Grandpa is amazing. He's 80 years old and he still farms. Here's a picture of him carrying a 40 lb sack of feed about 50 feet to his truck.

He absolutely astounded me on our trip. He showed us the cemetery in Stover and I learned about my family's history. I even saw the gravesite of my great great grandparents. Max and Anna Kate's favorite things were the cows ("like Chick-fil-A" they both said) and Farley the dog.

Job Interview

As many of you know, I have been working for nearly the past two years at Chick-fil-A for the express purpose of having my own restaurant. There are approximately 10,000 applicants every year for around 200 positions, so it is very difficult to get in, but a wonderful company to work with.

I am happy to report that we are one step closer to having our own restaurant. I have an interview with Kevin Hickey, who is on the operator selection team, this Tuesday at 11:30 in Grapevine Mills. This is only a first interview, but getting this interview itself is a huge hurdle.

We'll give more details about the progress of this job quest with Chick-fil-A as they unfold, but as of now all is going as planned. Praise the Lord! Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Out of Touch

We've been without internet since Thursday, and today it is magically back (for now). Since our telephone is through our internet (VoIP, it's great except for occasions like these) we have been without a home phone, just our sullophones. We're back baby!

Thank You Cliff Green

I guess they're unofficially my second favorite team by default of the fact that I live in Arlington. But the Texas Rangers will be who I am rooting for tonight when I get to see them from the 40th row of section 39 tonight. Woo hoo! These tickets are compliments of Cliff Green. Thanks.
