Hello, Walls

I haven't updated my blog that much because of work and my current writing project. It has been interesting as this place closed down, eventually leaving me being the only one in the building running the color digital press because the newer version installed at the new location kept breaking down. For just over two weeks, I worked in an empty building, no fridge, no microwave, no effing lock on the door (Tommie Ashe would lock up and hit the alarm after I called and said I was blowing town). As you can see from the photos, I made a roll of goldenrod paper from the web press into my pal Wilson and he kept me company over many long shifts. The plant closed yesterday, I'll certainly miss Wilson, rascal that he was, but at least I still have his photo. The new place is in the ghetto end of Oak Forest, and I wasn't surprised to find a boarded up crack house within walking distance of the parking lot. You can expect photos soon. Oh, and there's a barn infested with bats next to a Quizno's Subs and a 5th 3rd Bank. Its as if I created the location in my version of Second Life. I'll be catching up with you all soon...Wayne
