REV is the company my guy works for. They build all kinds of vehicles but Steve sells their E-ONE emergency line, ie FIRETRUCKS!! Short story…….Steve was a firefighter for 25 years and helped design and purchase E-ONE fire trucks while he was an active firefighter. He retired at 25 years of service and 47 years old. A second career was wanted and before retiring, he was asked to sell E-ONE firetrucks. Badda Bing, we move to Ocala in 2010 and Steve begins his second career.
Every year, REV has a dealer meeting. Rah rah sessions, classes to learn and be updated on new products, lots of food and activities.
I get to come too! It’s always held at a nice hotel and I can always find something to do while Steve is in class.
This year the weather was not ideal. It rained one whole day and it’s a little colder than I like. However I can always find something to do. I read our upcoming book club book and worked on study questions for our meeting, I’ve watched an abundance of HGTV and got deeply involved in a new project.
Yes I have a tape measure with me most of the time. You never know when you might need one.
I can always find something to do.

I didn’t mind being in a hotel room all day with zero responsibilities. Right?
REV provides a night out to all the employees that have come to the Summit. This year, they bought out the House of Blues and REO Speedwagon was our entertainment. I’ve love REO for years but when did they get so old!
The lead singer is 68 years old and he can still sing like crazy and never missed a beat. I was tired just watching him.
I loved the guy playing the piano
It says something for a group of musicians that have been together for 40+ years. The lead guitar player was only 30+ years but you could see the friendship that they had while they entertained. It was incredible to watch.
I wish I could watched from a chair but no seats were available and I was not the smartest in picking out my shoes for the evening.
Anyone that knows my husband, knows what a hard worker he is. Whether it be his paid job, a house project or helping out a friend in need, it doesn’t matter, he gives 110% and you will never be disappointed if you ask for his help.
He was gone yesterday for a class, and he returned with a box in his hand looking sheepish. He said “I didn’t know they were giving out awards today.”
5th in the nation in sales and he didn’t know it. I’m so proud.
I’m proud of his award but I’m prouder that he works so hard and doesn’t pay attention to what recognition he might receive.
I’m proud that when I stand next to him, people shake his hand and offer his congratulations and tell him that he really deserves it.
I’m proud of how he chooses to be kind and respectful to people when they might not deserve it.
I’m proud to be his wife.
Congratulations my favorite guy!
