It has been a busy fall for us, but that is actually normal. We had some added excitement a few weeks ago as both Brady and I had our bosses come to town and travel with us through our territory. First, Brady's bosses came up from Texas and he took them all over The Great Northwest, from Eugene to Medford to Portland to Kennewick and back to Portland. Thankfully, the weather was absolutely perfect and they had a successful week of sales calls. I was so happy they stopped by on their way north one morning. I could talk to them all day long! They are seriously class acts. Brady took them by Autzen Stadium, and the they had an amazing time touring the facility. They were able to see the rings and the Heisman trophy and even go out onto the field, where the marching band was practicing and someone volunteered to take their picture. They also enjoyed hitting the Nike Outlet store in Woodburn. One thing about it, traveling with your bosses allows you to get to know them better, and it is actually a bonding experience. Brady is so grateful to his bosses for sharing their knowledge and being so helpful and supportive to him. He loves his new job as a boot rep!
I got a shooting lesson from Jade, and I have to admit shooting the target was fun! I have never had an interest in shooting a gun before or anything to do with guns, really, but I am finally ready to learn how to handle one and to be comfortable with it. And we have the perfect spot to practice on our property, which is a nice bonus.
As we were packing up our stuff after the meeting, Jade and I got a great surprise - Brady stopped by on his way out of town! He was arranging his boots inside the store, and after he was done, he came into the meeting room where we were packing our stuff up. It was so fun to see him! Only Brady would think to do such a thing. Both Jade and I were happy to see him, of course. Brady knows how to make people smile, no doubt about it.
