If only Salih could be 20% less cool.

This week has been a weird week. I've known for a few months that in 5-10 years my place of employment will shut down. It sucks, but 5-10 years is a pretty good heads up. I had thought it would be another 5 years before they started eliminating any positions. Well I was wrong. The good news is my job is fine, the bad news is I just lost three of my co-workers including the person who I shared my shift with. He is the best person I have ever worked with and I consider him a close friend. Starting in April I'm going to be by myself for the 12 hour shift, missing him, and he's going to be without a job.

So there's that.

On Saturday I went to a concert for one of my favorite bands, Gogol Bordello, and it was awesome. Those guys know how to put on a hell of a show. That said, I might be getting too old to rock out while screaming song lyrics for over three hours, cus I don't feel so great right now.

Still totally worth it though.

Any ways the comic isn't quite finished yet. I will add in the shading latter this week but I didn't want to make you guys wait any longer for it to be done.
Man what difference shading makes.

If he doesn't find anything he is old enough to qualify for Social Security, it's less money then he is making now but he won't be completely screwed. He's got a lot of family and friends in the area so I know he'll be OK but it doesn't change the fact that loosing your job sucks.

Aw man, I wish that I was a traveling buddy to Mendiloquence...

That sucks about your friend, though. Hopefully he'll find a job!

Can your friend drive a forklift?

I was wondering if you left Salih's blaster rifle unfinished...

I'm sure he has driven a forklift before but I know he's not currently certified to drive one.

If you live in south-east Missouri or near Atlanta, I know DHL is hiring at both places.
Not sure if he'd want that though.
Most guys that age are ready to get off the treadmill and focus on spoiling the grand kids.

An interesting offer but he has no desire to move away from Wyoming. This is where he wants to retire and he has a lot of friends and some family here. Given that he is old enough to qualify for social security he's just going to do that instead of trying to find something else.

Fun fact about DHL though they do not deliver in Wyoming. Which is a huge pain if you are trying to ship something out here and they are involved. Wyoming is an odd part of the country.

Have you tried Carrier Pigeons?

I didn't think DHL delivered anywhere in the US any more? Thought they backed out of the US market when the recession started.

Is it just me or is the art slightly different from your others? Keep up the good work :3

It's unfinished. See the last line in her initial comments above.

Typical Sith thinking that they can 'borrow' a non-Sith. *huffs*

I'm sorry about your co-worker. That sucks. I hope he figures out the best solution for him.
