Some of you know this already. For those who do not, I am sad to say that it’s the end of the Pink Trail for Rusty. He will be leaving Wild Pink Yonder effective September 15th. I am happy to report that he has been poached by one of our sponsors — Integra Technologies.
You see, the thing is, Rusty and Rae know that one day they’re going to want a baby — but to do that, they need a nest egg — and, well, Wild Pink Yonder doesn’t pay all that well. In the past, that wasn’t important to Rusty. More than anything, he wanted to honour his fallen sister, and the pain his mother endured, with breast cancer. That was his motivation to come work with me here at Wild Pink Yonder.
Do I want him to go? Of course not. It breaks my heart. On the other hand, do I want him to have a nest egg so that I can have a grandchild one day? Ha ha ha! Need you even ask? *happy dance*
So this is it — Rusty’s last week as Sheriff of Wild Pink Yonder. I hope you’ll join me in wishing him happy trails as he heads off to become (amongst other things) a “leak-free critical path expert” at a company that “machines the world’s critical joints”. (Yeah … I don’t know either!)
PS … I’ll need all the cheering up I can get, so once this leg has healed, let’s ride!
