A Post Worth Sharing (Author: Tim Pottorff)

Last night my daughter and I were discussing how my grandparents, Anne and Lisle Pottorff, were born in 1900, and were her age during the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic. It makes one think. My grandmother never talked about it much, except to say she lost a lot of friends. She was a tiny Irishwoman, but must have been way tougher than she ever let on to me. This is a photograph of her and my grandfather. He and his brother ran the Peerless Laundry in Wichita, KS. This was in the day before most people had in-home washers and dryers, and they had a small fleet of pickup and delivery vehicles and several employees. During the Great Depression, my father said my grandparents kept many people on the payroll that they did not have to, "because people needed to eat." So here is what I am doing. I have a few people helping me on projects, and have paid them for their work, because it's the right thing to do. I asked another teammate to send me an invoice for everything she is working on, so I can pay her now. I know it will get done. If you work with small businesses, please use your lines of credit and pay their invoices today. I am not asking anyone to do anything I have not already done. #qp3 #wegotthis #staythecourse #dotherightthing
