I got a job at a plastic injection molding factory called Donnelly Custom Manufacturing.http://www.donnmfg.com/
I will be running one of the machines, making sure that the parts are up to spec, and also doing change-overs for doing different parts. The factory focuses on doing â€œshort runsâ€, runs that typically take 1 or 2 shifts to complete. The way I see it, in doing the short runs, it keeps the work here-not overseas, in turn, giving me long-term employment! Yippee!
My supervisor is an acquaintance of mine from when I worked at one of the local bars. We always got along pretty good. He is, however, quite the dancing machine, but he calls it â€œcardioâ€. I call it something else. Perhaps I should bring him some glitter!
I am pretty damn excited to get out for 60 hours a week. Even though it will be spent at work! It is kind of strange looking forward to working 60 hour weeks. The money isnâ€™t the greatest, but it is better than nothing. I am thankful for having a job. Period.
I think that my attendance and especially my attitude will be second to none! I bet I will be the happiest guy there! No hangovers, either.
I will be working 2nd shift, so I will be in jail during the day. Most of the people in my unit are gone during the day, so that will be nice. I will miss all the noise and crap that goes on during the evenings-the longest part of the day, as far as I am concerned.
My wife will be able to bring me home made meals and some of the other amenities that I cannot have in here. I will say this- The sex in here is AWFUL!
Most of my time, here, I am reading. I have covered many of the classics. Treasure Island, The Red Badge of Courage, Frankenstein, and All Quiet on the Western Front, To Kill a Mockingbird, the list goes on and on. I cannot bring myself to read anymore of the John Grisham courtroom drama books, as I have had enough of that already! One of the most popular books series is the â€œPreyâ€ series by John Sanford. Awful, just awful. And of course Louis Lamour
And yes gel pens are tools of the evil empire.
Thanks again for the words of encouragement Army. It means a lot!
