    Last Post For A While

    I'm going to be incommunicado for a while. Don't worry, it's a good thing.

    When the most recent financial crash brought my career in security contracting
    to an abrupt end, I went almost a year without being employed. Since I was
    a contractor, I couldn't manage to get any unemployment, so as a result, I
    burned through my savings and ended up losing my house. It's been rentals
    and moving around in the same area of Central Texas since.

    Well, all that's changed. I never thought I would get a break again, but I have.
    I have purchased a house in southern Texas. My BIL really came through for
    me and owner financed a place for me. It's a fixer upper, but as of last night, it
    belonged to me and my wife.

    I'm transferring units. From the maximum security unit here I worked at, to
    a minimum/medium unit near where I'm going to be living. I've already done
    my orientation week there, and in fact, tonight is my first regular shift there.
    It's a pretty major culture shock. The only medium custody they have is one
    small wing, and they are mainly just big titty-babies that think they are holding
    something, as opposed to what I'm used to.



    Yoakum is the town...I don't really live IN the town. I live outside of it on five acres.

    It's going to be a minute before we get the internet/satellite etc transferred, so that's why.



    I'm gonna be an honest to goodness redneck!

    Mom will be so proud.

    Congratulations! I live in Victoria, about 45 minutes from you and work in Yoakum frequently. If you want, let's have a beer some time and watch a game.
