Nate is a hard working individual in the Flooring Department at Lowe’s in Townfair Plaza.  Years ago, when I first ran into him at the store, I commented about the sneakers he was wearing.  Since I had worked in retail for over 25 years, I told him that his footwear did not “work” with his company vest.

Since that time, he has excelled in being sure to wear all different types of brightly colored sneakers.  One must stop in and check it out for themselves.  Yes, I know that he is working, but the lack of a smile in this picture is a surprise!

Just today, I saw Nate at the Library and he told me that he is no longer working at Lowe’s and at his new job, he has to wear company required footwear.  No more colors!

My name is John Burkhart and I reside in Indiana, Pennsylvania. For over 25 years, I worked in Visual Merchandising and Store Design for different companies across America. I have lived and worked in San Diego, Phoenix, Dallas, Atlanta, Tampa, Honolulu, Boston, and Richmond. In 2000, I went home to help my parents. For the back story, go to Youtube, type: John Burkhart on the search line and see a video that Sean Yoder and James Nestor at the Indiana Gazette did over 2 years ago. Be that as it may, in an effort to be/stay productively busy, I was told I should transfer some of my visual and written humor from my apartment walls to a blog. It is all new to me but I hope that you see/read my blog, get a laugh or two and let me know what you think. Looking forward to any and all comments!
