In 1991, I had a new job in Salt Lake City. Unfortunately, there was no place for the family to move to, yet, and the house in Vermont still had to be sold, so they stayed in Vermont. We were fortunate to have friends that lived in Grantsville, Utah, outside of Salt Lake City. It was a small town, I mean SMALL. I am sure everyone knew everyone. They let me stay in their home while things got sorted out.
The new job was still servicing cash registers aka POS systems (Point Of Sale). The company was Mid-Mountain Data Systems, headquartered in Boise, Idaho. I settled right in and everything was fine except the family was too far away. After a few months, and the Vermont house not selling, we decided the family should join me. It was fun paying a mortgage and a rent (not) but we managed. All of our furniture was still in Vermont, so we had to come up with furnishings for the place we rented by borrowing and buying.
After nine months, an opportunity came up to transfer to the Boise office and I took it. We loaded up a U-Haul trailer and said good-bye to Grantsville. Mind you, the Vermont house still hasn't been sold yet, so the adventure continues.
