    Last day on my job today, got my office cleaned out, said goodbye to a hundred or so folks that are leaving the mill for good. Moved most of my stuff into a large steel container thats sits out back, came home and began the celebration. Can't get too carried away, deer huntin' starts in the mornin', need a clear eye and a steady hand. I'll hit the woods for a few hours, come home (probably without my wily quarry) and clean the gutters, drain the rain barrel, finish pickin' up around the yard, be ready for the snow in case it does get here tomorrow night, then resume the celebration. Sunday will bring the resumption of this year's edition of "THE QUEST FOR THE SUPER BOWL", the greatest day ever invented by (and for) man. Monday, I start training on my new job on the garbage truck. WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Life is good, it jes' don't git no better than this!!!!!!

    Good for you Hoss. I know you mentioned the job situation a while back, so I am glad you found something.
    For the record, every time the Garbage man comes by my house, a part of me says that I want this guys job. Good luck with the bucks too!

    I was thinking of you today Hoss . . . had to head down to Belfast to get a bounce house and as I was passing through Prospect I thought of you over there in Bucksport . . . sorry again to hear about the job loss, but glad you've already got something lined up. Keep the faith and the home fires burning . . . and good luck tomorrow.

    . . . and you can wash clothes in it between burns!

    Hoss, you sound like a handy man to have around the house. Makes me wonder how people find the time to go to work.

    Hope things work out as well for the other 99, and stay safe this weekend.

    Oh,sorry for the poor explanation, I'm still at the same place, they just eliminated my job. Now a pay cut, different job, ZERO decision making and responsibility, kinda looking forward to it. Hopefully the place stays open a couple more years, anyway.
