Frank, sometimes a hammer is just something to chase anarchists with.

By "travel," I mean "ride with a crew."

I'm out of a job. The company is reducing staff, and I was the most recent full-time hire in my division. C'est ça.

I've returned to Kamloops and will find local work, preferably as a trucker.

Doug, so sorry to hear that. Yea, there's always someone who will want some shit trucked around somewhere.

Just be lucky you have Canada's social safety net.

Ouch -- A lot of that going around Douglas. Hopefully you can nail something down quickly.

My friend NeoCon Jim (who is admitting to some less-than-neoCon thoughts about social programs these days) is in his sixth month of unemployment.

He's doing freelance work for a bathroom design firm (learning the processes and software involved), which I think is better suited to his temperament than was sales.
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Barber, send Jim my way. Within a blink of an eye he will become a fire breathing anarchist too.

Good luck to you, Doug. Be the bounce-back king!

Thanks, Frank, Steve, and Paul. I appreciate the commiseration.

Don't worry about me: I'm pretty good at finding work and have no dependents.

Best of luck finding a new safe haven to earn that daily bread, Douglas. Still hoping to see you in town sometime.
