Long time no post. :=3
First of all a month ago (Sept. 27th) I completed my 59th orbit around Sol. In a year I can retire, but retire from what?
I'm still in a holding pattern as far as jobs go. I've applied various places, but no one is interested in hiring me. A lack of transportation is a major issue, as I can't travel too far.
So, you may ask, how do I get around. Three ways: Underwater Tiger sometimes lets me borrow his truck, I walk, and I drive my yard tractor around town. :=3
People ask how I am surviving. Well, you may remember my power was shut off on April 11th. Some very nice people gave me some solar panels, and an ex-boss bought more of the same type. Those same nice people even bought me a 3200 watt generator! I did not ask for that, but they got me one anyway. They also drive me to the supermarket where I can buy groceries using "Food Stamps".
The same ex-boss bought me a 10,000 BTU kerosene heater to keep Maggie warm. He loves my cat, so he says everything he does is for Maggie. :=3
Actually, Jerry is a hell of a nice guy and he considers me almost family.
I also do odd jobs to get some money for non-food items. Various people have sent me things to make my life easier.
What do I need to get my power restored? About $6100.00 to pay off the back bill. Yes, you read that right; over six thousand dollars.
As bad off as I am I realize that it could be worse, so I take it one day at a time.
To reiterate, I'm not depressed, though I am concerned about different things.
